This is from an apartment that I was renting in 1996 with my ex. Can they garnish my wages for this.
If someone sues you and gets a judgment, it is good for 10 years and they can renew it indefinitely. They need a judgment in order to garnish your wages, so it sounds like they followed the legally required steps.
You can file a claim of exemption to reduce or eliminate the garnishment, try to reach a settlement or contact a bankruptcy attorney.See question
If a married couple filed for bankruptcy during the marriage but during their dissolution he claimed that they were separated during that time, obviously for a lower alimony and separation of assets, and he receives that judgment, due to better c...
A married couple can be separated or in the process divorcing and still file bankruptcy together. I've done this before for couples on a number of occasions. If they are living separately, we list both addresses in the bankruptcy petition.
You haven't said whether any of the information in the bankruptcy petition is false. The bankruptcy papers are signed under penalty of perjury and it isn't clear the husband gave false testimony.See question
I keep going through the searches and I'm not sure exactly who to contact. I've been told I need a Civil Defense Attorney, but that's not a category that I can find. And then I can't tell who is Defense or a Prosecutor. Confused.
You've already received several good suggestions. Suing for emotional distress implies some sort of negligence. if you have homeowners or renters insurance, contact them to see if the claim might be covered. The carrier might hire an attorney for you. if this is somehow related to a car accident, notify your automobile carrier.See question
I lent a $3,820 muscular stimulater to a friend about 4 mos ago. I have text messages from him that he borrowed it and was done with it. We tried to set up a meeting to return it, but he suddenly died 6/4/16. I also have text messages and phone ca...
The decision is yours of course, but this is something you should handled in small claims court. If you have proof that she knew it was yours and still disposed of it, I could see a judge awarding you damages.See question
I have the order of default and judgment on a debt from couple years back. What happens if I file bankruptcy? Will that "clear" the default judgment order at all?
You'll need discuss the specific matter with a local bankruptcy attorney. Not all debts are dischargeable, but it doesn't matter if it was a default judgment or a judgment after a trial. The nature of the debt determines if it can be discharged. For example, a credit can sue in bankruptcy court to block the discharge of a particular debt if it was incurred via fraud.
Most debts will be discharged and a judgment would be voided. The creditor would be barred from collecting on it.See question
This is a judgement from 4 years ago. The Plaintiff has agreed to do what they can do have this removed from my record. I know I can't file a motion to dismiss as it's been over 2 years, but I've read about filing a stipulation with the court? I f...
I've helped clients do this before and it helps improve the credit score of the judgment debtor by removing it. Yes, it can be done so long as everybody agrees.See question
Can prosecutors serve a subpoena electronically like via a text message? I thought it had to be in person, via certified mail or at least have it ready aloud to the person. In other words the person has to acknowledge receipt or the officer has t...
No, you can't be served via text. You can agree to appear voluntarily if they tell you when and where to show up.See question
I was the passenger in a car that was involved in a hit and run accident the driver has been charged with driving under the influence and gross bodily injury (maming ) her lawyer has subpoena me as a witness and wants me to plead the 5th.
Someone else's lawyer wants you to refuse to testify by pleading the 5th? That doesn't make any sense. You should consult your own criminal defense attorney.See question
In a divorce, I noticed the summons states 'The people of the state of (anystate) summons you to appear.....whatever.. It was signed by the petitioner's attorney, which I read in rules is allowed, as alternate to the court clerk. However, I a...
I don't know where you are getting your information, but your description of the contents of a summons is inaccurate. The summons used by California courts contains none of the language you quoted: http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl110.pdf. Also, California attorneys do not sign the summons in a lawsuit. They attorney fills out the form, but the court clerk issues the summons.
Now you might be thinking of a subpoena to appear as a witness. In the case of a subpoena, the law specifically allows attorneys to sign a subpoena.See question
