My payment plan for chapter 13 was confirmed at 100% of unsecured debt. I'm expecting a bonus of over $3000, will the trustee take a lump sum or change my payment plan?
The answer to your question really depends on the terms of plan and the confirmation order. I've had a cases where the debtor was required to turn over the bonuses as a term of the plan. In other cases, the issue doesn't even come up. It other cases, the bonuses may be necessary to pay the amounts to the creditors as specified in the plan. But with a plan that already pays 100% to the creditors, I doubt the trustee would care much about the bonus.See question
Credit company hired attorney to sue to collect outstanding balance. I got summons and now filed application of default. They named defendant I and my wife in spite of the account is only my name.
You need to contact an Arizona debt settlement for bankruptcy attorney. An application for entry of default usually means that you didn't respond to the lawsuit in the time allowed and the plaintiff is seeking a judgment without a trial. A motion to set aside the default might be required.See question
I was in a goodwill store and was looking at a bike stand. I tried to close the stand and my finger was caught in between two of the bars. The tip of my finger is now broken. Should I file a lawsuit against Goodwill?
You injured yourself, so I don't understand why you would sue GoodWill. It wasn't there fault.See question
How much does retaining an attorney generally cost
it depends on the type of matter and how complex it is. A chapter 7 bankruptcy will be a lot cheaper than defending against a DUI charge.See question
The plaintiff filed a MSJ claiming the property boundaries between us were mapped in error and in her favor. She presented previous records from city and county engineers, map makers etc but now I find out from the land surveyor I hired this is in...
Failure to file timely opposition to the MSJ give the judge the authority to disregard you your opposition and assume there is no defense to the motion.
In a boundary line dispute, hiring a surveyor or other expert is generally one of the first things you should do. You'll should be prepared to tell the judge why you didn't act sooner, what new information your surveyor is expected provide, why it might effect the judge's ruling and ask for more time to present it properly.See question

You might be be referring to for 283 or B283. In order to get a discharge, debtors have to complete this form in order to certify that they are current all domestic support obligations.
The courts where I practice send this form to the debtors near the end of the case. Chances are pretty good that your attorney is correct...you didn't pay attention. I am often amazed at how often i send things to my clients that they ignore. While you may sincerely that the attorney didn't contact you about this, I don't believe what you are saying is true.
The attorney clearly isn't going to do the extra work without getting paid. I wouldn't either. You can always sue to get the money back later or complain to the state bar, but you will likely need to pay the attorney to get the discharge.See question
My girlfriend hired a personal injury lawyer under a contingent fee agreement after she sustained a knee injury that required surgery.Her lawyer went through the process of sending a demand letter, filing a claim Etc. After the deposition he told ...
I respectfully disagree with my colleagues that assume the client is automatically entitled to possession of the file just because the client asks for it. Rule 3-700(D) of the California Rules of Professional Conduct upon termination of the attorney-client relationship. There could be something in local court rules or the fee agreement governing what the attorney is required or entitled to maintain in his or her possession while still the attorney of records. I don't think it is matter of simply of demanding the file, I would call the state bar for further guidance.
Reading between the lines here, it sounds like your girlfriend's attorney has determined that she's a pain in the neck. She's seemingly rejected her attorney's opinion the deposition didn't go well and apparently rejected a settlement offer. It sounds to me like the attorney is fed up with her and lost enthusiasm for the case. Under those circumstances, why WOULDN'T she sign the substitution of attorney?See question

Hire a registered process server to handle this for you. You must have the individual defendants personally served and there are special rules to assert claims against governmental entities. Your lack of procedural knowledge also indicates the need for an attorney.See question
My roommate has a painting signed by Picasso has a finger print in the paint and it's mesurments the age and quality of the canvas along with where it came from all add up to be real .Now if it is it's worth 179 million $. I need to have a lawyer ...
Pretty much any attorney would tell you speak with would tell you to hire an expert witness to authenticate the painting. Experts cost $$ and attorneys generally won't go out of pocket for something like this. Also, a retained expert would probably know how better to market this for you than most attorneys.
To be honest, you are better off trying to get this on a TV show like Pawn Stars or Antiques Roadshow.See question
