You be perfectly clear on what they can and can't do - you should read the contract you signed with them. There should be a section spelling out what rights they have if you miss a payment. Whether they follow it exactly or not is up to them. So if it has a grace period of say 5 days it doesn't...Read more »
It can buy you a little time but doesn't solve the problem. You still need to make your payments and be able to continue making them on time. You should sit down with a bankruptcy attorney immediately to discuss your options.
My great uncle passed away when I was 7 and left me an inheritance. My parents have always controlled the money, telling me that it was "money for college". They spent $10K of it on a year of a private middle school they sent me to when I was 12-13. They spent the remainder on three years of my... Read more »
Mr. Light's answer is a good one. Just because you "inherited" the money doesn't mean you just get it at age 18. Quite often people will put restrictions into a will telling the guardian of the money how they want it spent. In your case they could have said to "only use the money for your education...Read more »
It's difficult to understand your question. What / why are you "releasing uninsured motorist"? I would strongly urge you to get an attorney well versed in personal injury matters (assuming you were injured) because you could do something to jeopardize your case. And the insurance companies love it...Read more »
I am the plaintiff in a personal injury case. The insurance adjuster has asked for my medical records, which I will be giving them. However, I was wondering if there is any way to keep the individual defendant in this case from seeing/accessing these records? I believe this individual could be a... Read more »
You should talk to your lawyer since Colorado law applies. If you don't have a lawyer you should seriously consider getting one. Statistics show personal injury plaintiffs net more money after the attorneys fees. This is because the insurance carriers will do everything they can to pay you as...Read more »
You can sue him but the penalty for you not having insurance is that you are not allowed pain and suffering damages. You can get your car damage, medical bills and any other hard cost expenses like wage loss, etc.. You can sue him in small claims court.
Your employer should handle helping you with a defense and getting you out of the action unless you did something out of the ordinary. It's impossible for us to analyze your situation without a lot more information. Normally a slip and fall doesn't involve an employee so your question is a little...Read more »
Do you have equity? Do you have any chance of finding your husband? You have some time until they start foreclosure so I would not panic yet. Once you stop making your mortgage payment they usually don't start the foreclosure process for at least 4 months. Then, assuming they start in 4 months, you...Read more »
I suppose there could be some far out fact pattern that could implicate an individual working for a company but in most instances the employer (store here) is responsible for the acts of their employees.
My 18 yr old niece got in an Accident and was found at fault. She had no insurance and no DL at the time. she took no photos and cant rember the Accident because she lost consciousness and suffered a concution, one of the other drivers also did not have insurance and got an lawer and she recived a...

If she was at fault like you say then you really need to find out how much damage was done to the other car and find out if anyone was hurt. That will determine her financial liability. The fact that the other party got an attorney means the other person most likely was injured. If the other party...Read more »
There are a few different options when filing for a personal bankruptcy. As Mr. Holland states you should sit down with an experienced bankruptcy attorney and go over your options in detail. It's impossible to give you an help with just a simple question/answer.
I was wondering if your firm is open this case. I recently purchased a Macbook pro and it was damaged on arrival. I took it back to the store and the genius bar said that it was water damaged therefor they cannot exchange or return it for me. I was really frustrated because this is a brand new... Read more »
Most lawyers would be happy to sue Apple for you. I think $10,000 would be a starting retainer. Apple will probably fight fairly aggressively to send a message that you can't sue us because we are larger than some small countries. After the first round of discovery you should probably expect to put...Read more »
My parents are scared I might go bankrupt in a couple years. I own 30% of a condo worth 75 grand and have credit card debt of 55 grand. They want me to take my name off the deed in which they own the other 70% and have a side agreement with them. Should I agree to take my name off the deed or lower... Read more »
You should consult with a local bankruptcy attorney to find out your options. Transferring ownership the way you propose is not recommended but you still might be able to protect your asset. A more detailed analysis is required and that is why you should contact someone who and evaluate your...Read more »
I was informed by email that Chapter 11 had been filed by our commercial tenant, but they failed to give us any details as to where it was filed. Are they required to officially serve us? I want to get an attorney but don't know what jurisdiction.
You should be listed as a creditor and receive communication through the mail regarding the bankruptcy. It should be very easy to find out "where" the bankruptcy was filed. You should contact a local (to you) bankruptcy attorney and they should be able to figure it out.
It would be very hard to get pro bono help but there are some good options - for example if you are elderly there are volunteer clinics in some areas that can help. You can possibly get a waiver on the court filing fees or pay them in installments and some attorneys (like us) will let you make...Read more »
Yes you can file for bankruptcy. There are many options available to you when you are in foreclosure and bankruptcy is probably the most used. Sometimes you can file a lawsuit if the bank is not treating you fairly. The banks have been very dysfunctional during the whole housing crash and we have...Read more »
