Q: How long does it take for everything to disappear after filling bankruptcy ?

Terrence M. Nolan answered on May 30, 2019

Generally it stays on your credit report for 10 years from the date of discharge.

Were the returns filed ontime? Did you ever ask for an extension? Are the returns more than 3 years old? This is a complex question that will require facts. Consult with a B/R attorney in person.

You have two options: 1. Go and see what happens; if you make it 6 months in GA before your Husband files in Maryland, he would have to file in GA; 2. File a Motion in the Maryland Court seeking Court permission to move to GA. It will likely be granted, since it is just as easy to book a flight... Read more »

Under Maryland law, you can be filed with or without cause, at any time. You need to check Ohio law and see if there are better laws for you. Did they pay you what they owed you? If not, you may be able to recover that money.

Q: Can information obtained in one case by discovery be used for another case, such as names of other parties?

or discovery of other information or wrongdoings that would be another legal case

Terrence M. Nolan answered on Apr 30, 2018

Generally yes, although if you object to it, the introducing Party will have to lay a foundation for it. See, e.g. Bill Cosby, convicted, according to one Juror because of a deposition that was taken in a civil case years before.

1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody for Maryland on

Q: Is it possible to get custody of my sister, father in jail and mom is gone. I have guardianship

I have had guardianship of my sister for over 6 months now, but I've had her living with me for over a year now. Her father is currently incarcerated and has been for a year now. He is a heroin addict and has put her life in danger countless times. Her mothee is out of the picture.

Terrence M. Nolan answered on Apr 30, 2018

Are you over 18? How old is your sister? Are you employed? How have you done as guardian? You can file in the Circuit Court where you live and seek custody. The Judge will make a decision based on the best interests of your sister. Dad can be served in jail quite easily.

Terrence M. Nolan answered on Apr 30, 2018

Check the wording of the Court Order carefully, it only applies to the Party stated therein, and only requires them to do what is stated. In other words, if only you filed for contempt against her, then the Order that arose from that would likely only apply to her, unless the Court ordered... Read more »
