I declared bankruptcy in 2016. I received a ledger from Lazega & Johanson, a collection law firm, very away after receiving my bankruptcy discharge. It stated that I owed them an absurd sum in association dues, which included fees and interest.
I discovered after looking at the charges... Read more »

Per Bankruptcy Code 523(a)(16), these debts are probably not dischargeable in bankruptcy, so you would continue to owe them. Whether they represent an accurate balance of what you owe is a different issue.
I suggest clearly breaking down all charges and payments made (like a statement),... Read more »

A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. In general nationwide, the meaning is pretty much what you'd expect it to be - offering truthful statements while speaking or being questioned under oath, usually in a courtroom setting.

You will need to file for divorce so that you can request child support and a request of your assets such as the 401k, and alimony if you qualify to receive it. In addition to child support you should also request help paying for child care. If you are in Georgia, child care is added to the base... Read more »

The answer to your question is very simple. With all the respect I can muster, you MUST meet with a real estate attorney to ensure that this effort is done properly. If it isn't, you will forever regret your mistake.

My boyfriends exwife took out a criminal trespassing warrant on us because she got mad at him when he dropped off the kids. I wasn't there and was at work but my name was on it too. Can she do that? Can I press charges for this?
answered on Nov 18, 2020
It appears as though you have a defense to the criminal trespass. Depending on the circumstances, she could be charged with filing a false police report.
yes my way of life was changed overnite when we separated. His way of control. Thinking I wld ask him back. Has caused me 3 yrs of therapy etc.
answered on Sep 10, 2020
If the cause of the separation was adultery, we can ask for more than 50% of the assets. If you were/are dependent on him for income, then alimony etc. would definitely be a consideration. We can discuss your options and best course of action when we get more details. Please call the office -... Read more »

If you live in a rental house, you also have the option of informing the landlord that you intend to repair the situation yourself by hiring your own licensed... Read more »

Arbitration is generally binding, while a mediator generally tries to assist the disputing parties toward a resolution without rendering a binding decision. This is more or less a fundamental attribute that distinguishes the two alternate dispute resolution techniques from one another across the... Read more »

I assume you mean you received "Notice" of a dispossessory proceeding. I have never heard of that. I must also assume that you must attend the proceeding if you want to fight it. Since you are in Georgia, and I live in Palm Springs, California, I can't comment on Georgia law. You... Read more »
Value of the car in the decree wqs $5000.. Unfortunately he let the car get repo. What can I do??
answered on Jul 29, 2018
Depending on what your decree says, you can file for contempt. However, if there is no provision that if he fails to pay off the car, and it gets repossessed, then he would owe you the value of the car, he may be in contempt, but there is no remedy. The court can't modify the order and make... Read more »

It probably does not matter that your husband is cheating. Most judges grant divorces on no fault grounds, so proving infidelity often does not change the outcome.
answered on Feb 4, 2018
No. If child support is agreed upon, you are complicating things if you do that. File a motion to enforce the settlement agreement and set it for a final hearing.
Not divorce yet but have an agreement settled in mediation. But just found out it doesn't take effect until judge sign off. Spouse also signed over the car saying he will keep up insurance on it and pay the car note but the car will be repossessed soon. What can I do??

You cannot get the car - that would be trespassing. You need to ask the judge for a temporary hearing to address the car issue.
