Hiding assets to avoid creditors is illegal. However, if your primary residence in Florida has a homestead exemption then Article X, Section 4 of the Florida Constitution exempts homestead property from levy and execution by judgment creditors. This means a creditor cannot force the sale of your...Read more »
I have no car, no land, no house, and no business. I have been unable to work/go to school (I had to drop out) the past few years because of serious mental health issues (I've been to residential treatment twice in the past two years). I have complex-PTSD and have been experiencing very acute... Read more »
It depends on what type of bankruptcy you filed and why it was dismissed. A chapter 7 does not protect the property from sale and only keeps the bank from holding you personally liable. I am guessing, and that's a big guess since you did not post sufficient facts, that you filed a Chapter 13...Read more »
The debt is from “Lending Club” but a different company is suing her for that debt. Since she filed bankruptcy in 2016 and it’s been so long since then, can they even legally sue her? Since it’s not even the same company, could they do this? She is being taken to pre-court next week. She... Read more »
Did she get a discharge of her debts or was the case dismissed? Was the debt included in the bankruptcy? Was it a secured debt? If it is a secured debt (mortgage on real estate, car loan), the company can move forward with an action to recover the property. More facts are needed and she should...Read more »
Your bankruptcy lawyer should be able to review the papers and answer your questions. The bankruptcy court cannot do anything without a motion or pleading filed to bring it to the court's attention. You don't mention what the fees are for but if there was a judgment in the foreclosure...Read more »
I fired my bankruptcy attorney this evening. I need to file something with the court to reflect this, but I can't find substitution for pro se debtor. Can someone please tell me how to file a motion to fire my attorney with he court?
Until your attorney files a motion to withdraw from the case, and the motion is granted, the attorney remains responsible to represent you. Ask the attorney how soon this will happen; it might be a good idea for you to sign the motion. Or if you have another attorney to step in, the new attorney...Read more »
I spoke with my attorney today pertaining to incorrect information in my Schedules that were filed.I provided everything accurately and honestly. Most concerning, my tax return wasn't added. Then my values of property were changed. Removed a creditor that was originally on draft. Said I make... Read more »
While both of you are at fault (your signing them without making sure they were accurate and complete; your attorney neglecting to attach your tax return, and overlooking other mistakes in the schedules), the attorney is probably right by advising you that it's not important. As you have...Read more »

Can I still fight for this judgement even though it was from 2014? Defendant owes me 4995.00 and i... Read more »
Sounds like that debt was discharged in bankruptcy. You'd want to double check the bankruptcy case. If your debt was listed and bankruptcy was granted, then the debt was discharged. This means you cannot collect on it anymore.
You should contact a Tennessee attorney about collecting the judgment amount from the judgment debtor. If the debtor still has property in Georgia, it may be possible to levy on that property; in which case you would want to also contact an attorney in that state.
