My bank account just got levied $3,874 by Law Office of Harris & Zide, on behalf of discovery credit card unpaid debt of my brother. I have him in that account so he can pay bills with it. He has no job, I am basically helping and supporting him to get on his feet in near future. I would like to get my money back and have some kind of payment schedule with them. Is that possible, and if so how can I get it reimbursed by them? .
Sounds like you need to speak to the Law Office and set up alternate payment arrangements. Explain the situation. They could issue you a reimbursement.
I have been handling various general practice family law, criminal defense, estate, business, and personal injury cases for 20 years. The above answer is not meant to be all-inclusive or contain the absolute answer to fully address all details of your specific case, rights, claims, defenses, etc. Any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice or establish an attorney-client relationship.
You can file a third party claim of exemption. Your brother can file a claim of exemption or a BK. You or your brother can work out payment arrangements with the creditor. Your post highlights the dangers of having another person listed as holder on the account.
