Absolutely. Judgments are one of the main reasons that individuals chose to file bankruptcy. You may want to move quickly as once the creditor receives the judgment, they can engage in post-judgment activities like garnishment or seizure of assets.

Just my dads name is on the loan

It is a debt of your dad's estate. Is your dad's estate solvent? Are you gonna go through probate? If so, please contact a probate lawyer to discuss this and how best to proceed.

If your father's estate has more assets than debts, then it is most likely the responsibility of the estate. Please consult with a probate lawyer to discuss your father's estate and get his affairs in order.

I don't see why. Your job was to install the washer. Unless the leak is from a joint you worked on I don't see liability.

You had the duty to get the freezer. Covid would not have prevented you from getting the freezer. I don't see a claim. She isn't required to keep the electric running for you forever. But get a few more answers.

My company did work for a client. They refuse to pay their invoice. By accident one of their vendors sent me their merchandise. Can I sell that to recoup my losses?
answered on Feb 28, 2021
No, that would be conversion, or theft. You can return the product or tell the customer and ask if he would like you to sell it and charge the proceeds against his account to you. And/or you can take him to small claims.

It is not defamation or slander if the conversation is between the two of you. Defamation and slander require that there be some public statement. Do not, by the way, discuss this on facebook or any social media--that's where people get into trouble!).
All the best.

A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. It sounds like you're talking about a welding blanket. You could contact a Pennsylvania attorney to discuss - it would take investigation and possibly trial to make the determination of defectiveness. It could... Read more »

I suggest filing a "lis pendens" against the property in McKean Co. in the Prothonotary's Office there. Anyone looking to purchase that property in the future should see that there is a cloud on the title with that filing.
Best of luck to you.
