A: First of all, we don't know who "they" are, so realistically, you should first make sure your next direct deposit goes into a new account, like a Credit Union. Second, you need to retain an experienced civil litigation and bankruptcy attorney and possibly someone who also has a background in tax law. But realistically, no matter what your problem actually is you should not discuss the situation online, since law enforcement often monitors this website and others like it. Remember that you need the best attorney you can afford, and that a good attorney is rarely ever cheap and a cheap attorney is rarely ever good. In addition, never let geographic limitations stop you from getting the right attorney.
