it says I need to pay in full or minimum monthly payment of $250 by December 10th, or will put a lien on my social security number. my question is, How long does that process actually take for them to put a lien on my social security #? I don't want them to take my income taxes. I'm a... View More
There's no real way to know how long this action would take, because we're talking about government. however, you should assume now that that your tax refund will be taken by the state. If nothing else, pay the first $250.00 because that might delay things a bit. Figure out an alternative...View More
The third party person who pays for the litigant's attorney has no say in how the case progresses, because the payor is not the client. Neither clients nor payors dictate anything; the case progresses according to the law as applied to the facts of the case. If you think that you are going to...View More
I recently had to part ways with my attorney because he refuses to have evidence admitted and he refused to file a motion to compel evidence from the defendant . As a result I filed a motion to supplement the record and it was denied. At this point, I’m wondering would it be better to file a... View More
It depends when your court date is, and whether there is any indication that the plaintiff has filed paperwork telling the court the hearing is canceled and/or the casebis dismissed. If there's no indication the plaintiff has canceled the hearing or dismissed the case,then you should appear at...View More
We purchased a foreclosure property with a junior lien unfortunately (court records did not reveal any liens). The bank (who is in possession of the senior lien) is now foreclosing the property through a private auction. Do we have the ability to claim any surplus from the bank sale to try and... View More
After the property is sold, there will be a surplus or a deficiency. If a surplus, then the order in which payment is made is to the plaintiff, then to any lienholder, then to the owner. That's it. There's no.provision to be repaid, etc.,.etc. I think its section 45.032, Florida Statutes....View More
I own a home in manatee county Florida. I allowed my partner to move in with me. He pays half the bills in form of a rent check to me monthly. He also paid half of getting my main electrical box replaced ($2900.00).
I sent a debt verification letter requesting proof that the debt collector purchased the right to collect as well as a signed agreement between the original creditor and I. Instead, all they sent were multiple billing statements.
I’m wondering if I need to confirm in writing that they... View More
A debt collector does not own the debt. The creditor assigns the delinquent account to the debt collector, and can recall the account at any time. Debt verification has nothing to do with the assignment of the debt.
A debt buyer is a company that purchases delinquent accounts from the...View More
Debt collectors don't put liens on anything, as they do not own the debt or the account. Generally, when a car payment is not made, the lender repossesses the car and then retains a debt collector to collect on the loan.
This took place in pinelles county Florida. Locks were changed after the court ordered us to vacate the home but prior to being processed by the county sheriff resulting in the final judgement being “cancelled”
Yes. The FILING of the eviction complaint is what causes issues for renters, not the outcome of the case. The filing creates the record in the clerk records, and that is permanent. The records are public records, so anyone can look up the filing. They may not be able to see the actual documents,...View More
Hello! My parents are deceased, and their home is on a reverse mortgage. I received a summons for personal service on a natural person from the mortgage company attorney, who is also a debt collector. I need to respond in writing within 20 days. From what I can tell, they wish to foreclose on the... View More
If you don't respond, a default will be entered against you. That just means that you are cut off from raising any defenses later. The default paves the way to a judgment, which in this case, means that any legal interest you might have in your parents' home is foreclosed, or...View More
The disposition of his assets are covered under North Carolina probate law. Someone will need to at least consult an attorney to see how his assets can be distributed. His girlfriend has no legal relationship to him, and therefore has no legal right at all, to do...View More
If the plaintiff is represented by a law firm/attorney, call them and see if they will agree to a change. If there's no lawyer on the other side, call the judge's assistant and ask whether you can change the date. Your business obligation had better be significant; as between a court date...View More

You took out the loans, now it's time to pay up. The lender is not interested in your personal problems, nor does it have any idea about your relationship with your parents; the suggestion to borrow money was a suggestion, nothing more. There's no need or purpose to you becoming offended....View More
If I entered a gated community, in Florida that has no trespassing signs, but did not enter anyone’s private property only hanged out on the communities playground and did not leave when asked by a homeowner is that considered trespassing?
Yes. When there is a no trespassing sign at the front of the gated community, the entire community is a no trespassing area. You have absolutely no legal right whatsoever to enter the gated community. None. Don't go back, because you could (and should) be arrested for trespassing.
You asked for a rehearing and the Court denied it. That's the end of you getting a new hearing. It may be possible to appeal the ruling, but you'd need an attorney who practices appellate law to review the case and the timelines for filing a notice of appeal are very tight.
