Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer Yes, there are several reasons. A person doesn't qualify because of income. Another reason would be to stop a foreclosure on the debtor's home.. Still another reason would be that the debtor has property not fully covered by the bankruptcy exemptions. There are some people that want to at least pay back some of the debt. Also, one file a bankruptcy less than 8 years ago. The list of reasons continues.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer The defendants, both in civil and crim court, would be the principals and agents of the van company. The plaintiffs would be the bankruptcy trustee and the owner of the building. Sid may be a plaintiff if he had personal property on the premises.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer Unfortunately there is little you can do. Suing someone that is not collectible will not solve your problems. I suggest that you set up a consultation with a competent bankruptcy attorney.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer Unfortunately I am not sure what your question is. I think you may be asking when will you get your settlement check. If that's your question then you should ask your lawyer, if you have one, or the claim adjuster that you settled with.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer If the case is settled and the check has been issued then all you have to do is deposit the check in his bank account. If the check was issued to both his lawyer and himself thus requiring a counter signature, then the lawyer can visit your son at the jail to obtain your son's signature.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer It depends on whether your attorney incompetence was such that with another attorney a different result would have occurred. This standard is difficult to prove. You should set up a consultation with an attorney that specializes in family law malpractice.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer One of the terms of most probations is not to break a criminal law. Filing a false police report is against the law. If a person is charged with filing a false police report then it is a violation of probation. However the mere allegation of filing a police report may not be sufficient for a probation officer to violate a probationer.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer Do not take your name off the stocks. Removing your name may cause the trustee to act. Depending upon the amount you can use your wildcard exemption to protect the stocks.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer No. you should retain a competent bankruptcy attorney that agrees as part of the representation the attorney will field your calls. Then when a creditor calls you simply state that I am represented by an attorney. The attorney is handling my financial affairs please call the attorney at ________. My attorney has told me that by law I cannot speak with you nor you with me. Please call the attorney. Then hang up the phone.
Mr Scott Marshall Neuman's answer If he is willing that his name remains on the mortgage while he signs a quit claim deed to you and he relinquished all rights on the house in the final judgement of divorce, then if you continent making the payments there is little chance that the mortgage company would find out. If the mortgage company did find out the company may have a paragraph in the signed mortgage that allows the company to accelerate the loan.
