I was given an RV that has a lien, the rv has been vandalized severely, making the RV not worth more than the lien. Can the lien be forgiven? I am not sure what to do as I need this RV desperately.

Assuming that the lienholder properly perfected it lien (easy to do), a bankruptcy filing by its owner will not impair or "forgive" the liened indebtedness.
If you file a Chapter 7 case (the *Desnup* US Supreme Court decision), the bankruptcy has no effect, and the lien cannot be... Read more »

If they took a judgment against you, the judgment acts as a lien against your property. You will not be able to sell the home without paying the lien off. There is a small possibility that they could exercise a sheriff's sale of the property but in my experience, that is unlikely with... Read more »
I am purchasing an expensive large item, but it will take 4-8 weeks for the specialized national movers to pick it up. They want full payment now, what can I do to protect myself now, if the dealer goes bankrupt before the movers come?

You may consider paying with a credit card and dispute the charges in the event that happens. This may tie up your credit. You might also negotiate timing of the payment. Another option is to perhaps place the funds in escrow pending pick up. You have to discuss with the store to see what they will... Read more »

You need to discuss your options with an Arkansas probate lawyer. Your mother's estate may be insolvent and the bills may not need to be paid. The house may be protected depending on how it was titled. You need to discuss your options with a lawyer. You probably are not liable for any of the... Read more »
Looking for area of law that covers this. Perhaps Education or Consumer Law (?) - covering Title IX and/or VI violations.

An Arkansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. There are attorneys who handle cases under those titles - you could start by reaching out to them. Good luck

Polygamy is generally regarded as a crime. This is something a criminal attorney would understand the significance of more so than attorneys in the categories chosen above.

Evidence of payment in full is not the same as actual receipt of payment. If you actually do pay before the bank foreclosure you may have an action for unlawful foreclosure.
That when the sheriff will be called and he will put a 3 day vacate notice? I can be out by then just not the original 3 days posted by apartment complex

This notice is simply the first step a landlord must complete before they file a lawsuit in Court to have you evicted. The sheriff can not and will not do anything until they have a writ of execution from the Court, which is the document that commands the sheriff to forcibly remove you from the... Read more »
An out of state attorney who is female and unwilling to represent me. To expand on this misunderstood sentence, she tries to communicate with me in an akward sense, she is being charged. This is due to her not communicating with me only. It is impossibly horrible to expect 'good standing'... Read more »

It might be easier to simply start looking for a new attorney in your state. It's anyone's guess as to why they aren't returning calls. Good luck
And even if I paid it in full they say I'll still have to go to court for it

Sounds like they tacked on $297 for some explainable reason. Probably a statutory minimum penalty plus costs imposed on all bad checks--so the people who write small ones will stop and think if a $44 bad check is worth $341?
ADVISE: Unless you pay the $341 in full and go to court, things... Read more »

I have a default judgement against me from the credit card company, Discover.
I am filling out a schedule of assets.
The only thing I own is my vehicle.
Can it be taken from me?

You can claim some of your property as exempt from judgment creditors. If your property is does not fall with the judgment creditor exemption, then you may want to file bankruptcy to protect it. In either case, you may want to talk to a lawyer about your situation.

I assume you've asked for them. Personal items they should let you have; it'll help if you get your insurance to tell them to let you pick them up. The operating philosophy of towing companies is that they have your car and it' contents to hold as hostage.... Read more »
This is in the state of Arkansas. The bank I have my car loan through took the excess money ($8500) my car insurance company gave me and applied it to my remaining car loan balance. Is that legal?

Yes, you need to contact Legal Aid of Arkansas. They can do a telephone application for you. Usually, in two weeks, you will get a response back, either an advice letter or a letter notifying you that they will take your case. Good luck.
