I live in my homesteaded home and I co-signed on a home for my daughter which I have nothing to do with she lives in it with her children and has made all payments since the purchase. I am planning on filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy as I am 74 years old and make a little over 1000.00 a month on my... Read more »
As the previous answer suggests - you NEED to sit down with a bankruptcy attorney and discuss your situation in specific detail including how much "equity" you have in your home. I highly recommend you get proper legal advice and do not try to handle any of this on your own. You have too much at...Read more »
I sold my condo and bought the house with my girlfriend we both had name on the mortgage loan and Deed. After we live together, she brought her family over (like her mom, sister, brother and niece) then she start used me, she forced me... Read more »
Hi David... I have helped people like you with a process we call a Partition Action. It's always better to agree on it before you go to Court but sometimes you have to take Court action. You should talk to an attorney who handles these type of actions. We also are experienced in Bankruptcy which...Read more »

My younger sister has finished making an autobiographical, full length feature film about her growing up adopted in our so called "abusive" family. In her movie, she reveals both personal and embarrassing information about myself as well as depicting me as one of her "abusers" Do I have any legal... Read more »
You should contact an attorney as the previous answer suggests... but I would also add that attorneys in the Los Angeles area would have experience in this arena that is very rare in most other places. Good luck to you.
I was in a car accident 4 weeks ago, the insured of the other car accepted liability. I have a Stanford Hospital bill of $15,574 and I was unaware that I had state health insurance that will cover emergency room visits. My health insurance provider name and group/member number was not listed... Read more »
It's hard to answer your question without more information but I can tell you that insurance companies do all they can to minimize how much they pay to people their clients (insured) injury with negligent driving. The health care provider will say that they haven't divulged any of your "medical"...Read more »
Every case is unique and there is no way to answer your question without more facts. I have a current case where an ambulance ran a red light and collided with my clients vehicle and we are pursuing damages for our client. But having said that... I can't say whether you might have a case without...Read more »
I am very sorry for your loss. It's not possible for someone to give you advice about your situation with the limited information available in this forum. You should immediately sit down with a local attorney and discuss the situation. If the first attorney doesn't want to take the case ask them...Read more »
Hi Raz... A chapter 13 can be a good option to get back on track with your mortgage payment. We have helped many people with exactly that. We have also found that the bank sometimes doesn't follow the law and a lawsuit sometimes can get the bank and you on the right track without having to file a...Read more »
I received notice of application letter from workers compensation and I just realized that the date of claimed injury was wrong date. Should I call and inform my lawyer about this and ask to change it with the actual date?
Hopefully you had insurance. Since you had the title you must have paid cash. That usually means the "market value" of the car is less than you paid unless you had replacement insurance. The police may find it and hopefully not damaged too badly.
When you say he "lost the house" do you mean the bank foreclosed on him? If so then don't pay him. Wait for the bank to contact you most likely through a real estate agent. Unless someone bought the house through a foreclosure sale - then they should contact you. But if the owner/landlord still...Read more »

You can try to sue in small claims court but it sounds like your case is worth more than $10,000. Be careful because if you include your medical bills you might have to pay back to the medical provider. If your wage loss and pain and suffering get you to $10,000 you might not need the medical...Read more »

Your most recently filed tax return, 6 months of paystubs or whatever you and a general idea of how you spend your money. If you want to keep the car you need to stay current on the payments. When searching for an attorney you should find someone who treats you right and has some experience. Good...Read more »
The penalty for not having insurance is that you can only get your car fixed and your medical bills paid and possibly a wage loss claim. That is of course if the other party caused the accident. Now DMV might have some punishments for you and the police may issue a citation as well..
At the time of injury, it did not seem serious. This happened about three weeks ago. Due to increasing pain and no relief, an MRI was done (three weeks later) and showed completely torn tendon which needs surgery. We did not file complaint at airport or seek immediate medical help (person injured... Read more »
I agree with the previous answer. You will have a hard time finding a lawyer to take the case on a contingency. The airport's insurance carrier doesn't want to pay you anything and they will argue that if someone gets really hurt they seek medical attention right away. They will say "how do we know...Read more »
