The judgement was from a landlord because she broke a lease and the judgement was for 9K. This was five years ago. She just got a car so she can drive her child to where they need to go and it was taken. The car is only worth about 2K. That said, if she gets another car, can that take that one as... View More
I made a deal with Nathan & Nathan for 3 installments in return for them to settle the debt and drop the judgement. Only papers were served, no judgement was awarded yet. So I'm wondering if when I show up to court on the date in my served papers if judges (ever do or can) still lower the... View More
I do not remember ever doing one with them and said it was turned over to collections in 2019. They said it is for over $900 and if i do not pay it they will have me served and i will have to go to court and it will be well over $4000 then. I tried looking company that called up online with no... View More
You might ask the collection outfit to send you a copy of your alleged check loan. SOL on worthless check criminal charge has passed. If you ever acknowledged the debt, then 6 year SOL for suing starts then. If sued, make a sworn denial to be filed at Court and served. You will need an...View More
We are a co-defendant in a garnishment. Plaintiff states that we are the co-defendant's employer. The defendant is a consultant (1099 employee) and we do not garnish wages for consultants. We want to get dismissed from this lawsuit without the need to hire an attorney.
You have indicated you are a co-defendant in a garnishment. I am not clear on what you mean. I will assume that you are not a defendant - but rather you received a garnishment in regard to party that had a judgment entered against them.
If that is the case, you need to respond to the...View More
I got sue from the fitness center from breaking the 3 year agreement when I'm not even signed I was out of the country when the agreement was signed it was my husband who signed the contract so my question is,is this contract valid?
If it is a Civil Warrant for General Sessions Court, then a VOP is not an issue. However once a Judgment for money is entered, post-judgment asset discovery is a possibility where contempt of Court is a possibility. Nonpayment of Court Costs can affect your Licenses. The Court Clerk is after...View More
Depending on the amount owed, this would probably be a small claim in general sessions court. There are civil warrants available online that you can fill out and file with the clerk's office at the county courthouse. A clerk can also walk you through how to complete the paperwork. Although,...View More
Hire an experienced collection attorney to either pursue it or forget about it. Apparently you do not know anything about the judgment debtor's financial situation, which you need to even to consider the collection process.
2-fold issue. I sold a car to Carvana 5/16/21 — they failed to register it to the new owner. It's still in my name, has been impounded somewhere in California and also failed to do a back-out with Bridgecrest on the loan. I've received letters from the CA DMV, San Bernadino Police Dept....

Hacked. I made then aware i would be it soon but dealt with an accident in the family and then had covid. I have a court date for next week but can I just not pay this and not have to go to court. I just started a new job as well and cannot miss work. Thank you for your guidance with this matter.
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You would need to check with a local attorney if the phone calls violate Tennessee collection laws in terms of hours, tactics, etc. and whether the conduct is egregious enough to rise to the level of mental...View More
I supposedly have a judgement against me over $100 even though I've never seen it. The law firm called my job and talked bad about me. Then I agreed to pay $125 I kept paying it, but did not sign a contract stating I would. Last month I only paid $50 because again I didnt sign anything. My job... View More

You will need to read your finance contract for the repossession terms. But that contract is between you and your lender, not the State or County. Missing payments because of incarceration is not the lender's problem, and a proper self help repo while you are jailed is not illegal.
I put a down payment on a car and 2 weeks later they called and said they were taking it back because I changed jobs. I was told it was illegal for them to keep my down payment. Is that true? Because they shouldn't be allowed to keep my money if they take the car for no reason. They have done... View More
