I am a creditor in an Chapter 11 LLC Bankruptcy. The BK was discharged about one year ago. It appears as though the LLC will not be able to meet its obligations under the plan. The manager of the LLC is threatening another bankruptcy. is this allowed?
Yes, and no. Assuming your lien is validly perfected, you can advance money to the senior lien(s) to reinstate it, which will stop them from foreclosing this time around, and then initiate your own foreclosure process. There is so much to consider before you do anything like that, without much time...View More
in Sept 2019. I have never received anything in the meantime. I have no idea what this is for. It's never shown on my credit report, nothing received in the mail, no phone calls. Is it legal to be able to garnish my wages now?
I'm sorry this has happened to you. Debts get bought and sold all the time, so the original creditor's name might not be on the ewo. You can get a copy of the relevant legal documents from the court, particularly the proof of service and the complaint. The complaint will tell you who the...View More
I inherited two animation cels (one each of Tom and Jerry) in one frame. I sent them to an animation restoration specialist in Westlake Village, LA County. Estimate to fix and frame them was six months. He has had them for three years despite phone calls and letters asking him to return them. The... View More
This sounds like a small claims court case. I doubt it is going to be worth hiring a lawyer, as animation cells are usually pretty cheap. However, if you sue in small claims court you will incur the costs of personally traveling to court and the unlikelihood of ever collecting. In court you will...View More
If the plaintiff claims that you were served, you would have to file a motion to quash service by proving that you don't live there. Keep in mind that the goal of the law is to give a person notice. And you obviously know about the lawsuit. A successful motion to quash does not eliminate the...View More
It's a fair question. The increase is not excessive provided they gave you 30 days advance notice. It is worth your consideration that most businesses do not have employees available to process payments outside of normal daytime business hours. Because of that, your payment was late, and you...View More
Back in 2021 I filed for chapter 7 BK and my attorney said past taxes for 2014 & 2015 are still due as they don't fall under the standard time frame for these to be included. I was told after my discharge the IRS should mail you a letter indidicating what you owe after discharged. Its now... View More
My corporation is going out of business but the bank account is $5,000 overdrafted. The bank is closing the account and said that as the owner of the business, I am personally liable for the money owed.
Things like this normally go through a process of sending you a series of collection letters, and if not paid will eventually go to a collection agency or lawyer. Nobody is going to make a big deal over a $5000 debt unless they can identify assets or income that a court judgment could be enforced...View More
I bought a used Lexus in CA in 2020. Since I literally left the parking lot, the light on the dashboard has been on. The vehicle is constantly needing service. I have tried several times to contact corporate, but they still have not returned my calls or emails. The dealership is very... View More
This is apparently not a lemon law problem. Lemon law applies only to vehicles that are still under the manufacturer's warranty. You bought an after-market warranty. However, you have plenty of very legitimate grievances. The Better Business Bureau and the Calif Dept of Consumer Affairs...View More
Think about it. It's logical. (Also, the law requires it.) Here's why that is.
First, you live in a community property state. The law says that community property belongs to both spouses, even though you yourself don't practice doing that. The law overrides how you and your...View More

Problems like this really can't be solved without significant homework. It is urgently necessary to put together copies of all your receipts and then see if it all adds up to the number of payments, (plus any late fees) that should have been paid going back to the beginning of the contract....View More
when my uncle picked up my truck it was hooked up to a trailer, that was not mine. Then when I was looking in my back seat for something I found two ketchup packets from a place that's more than 2 hours from where I live. Then today I found another receipt that was not mine and was dated for... View More
You can sue the mechanic. Your claim for damages is going to be the daily rental value of the vehicle. Keep in mind that you must prove the case. Your uncle's testimony will be needed in court. However, ketchup packets normally do not have the name and address of a restaurant. Usually, it says...View More
I didn't have any paperwork associated with the deceased, and the bank wouldn't give us his account # or any other info. Bank of Hawaii received overpayment of Calpers retirement of about $17k. Bank told me they would have to return the money to Calpers before the account was closed.... View More
It sounds like this fact situation came right out of playing a game of Monopoly: 'bank error in your favor, collect $200.' The difference is that in Monopoly you get to keep the cash. In real life, you don't get to keep it.
The law strongly favors seeing the bank recover...View More
Mechanic left tools to go get a socket to fit my lug nuts and someone stole them while I was inside getting my purse. Dealer has threatened to repo car if tools are not returned. I don't know who took them. I didn't see any tools when I was at my car.
With the DA reject&exoneration of bail,isn't the bail money returned(what was paid in assuredy?)to the person who paid it?& if the case is a DA reject how would the bond company still be able to insist on the monthly payments,as well as the former defendant submitting to daily check-ins w/a photo?
Bail bond has not been eliminated across the board. Only in certain classes of cases. It sounds like there is still a bail bond required in your particular case. If so, the payments are required to pay the premium for issuing the bail bond.
A bail bond is actually a personal loan. The...View More
