Juan Ooink's answer Law Firm after you? I think you mean the matter has been sent to collections, which means you likely missed your opportunity to dispute the ticket. I suggest contacting the Law Firm and seeing what can be done.
T. J. Jesky's answer Regardless of whether your ex buys or sells property, you state you have "unpaid child support." You are entitled to this unpaid child support now.

James G. Ahlberg's answer A collector of medical bills incurred during a marriage can typically go after the people who were married to each other when the bills were incurred, not a later spouse. You should be able to discharge them in bankruptcy. On the other hand, which of you is supposed to pay those debts should have been determined at the time of your divorce. If a collector forces you to pay them and your divorce papers say your ex-husband should pay them, you should be able to take him to court and make him...
Jason A. Wilkins' answer First, call the cities that issued the citations and ask what they can do. Let them know you are sorry and want to see what you can do to waive some of the late fees. It's a stretch but worth asking. Next, try getting on a payment plan with the collection agency. MAKE SURE YOU VERIFY THAT THE COLLECTION AGENCY YOU SPEAK WITH IS THE ONE THE CITY CONTRACTED WITH. You don't want to pay a scam. If you do enter a payment plan that allows the suspension to be lifted, make sure you can complete...

Robert J. Walinski's answer Foreclose could be translated as "wipe out". The mortgagee foreclosed in order to wipe out all liens with less priority in the property than its own. Generally any lien attaching to the property after the mortgage is recorded has less priority. Only if the property sells for a surplus (an amount over and above that needed to pay off the first mortgage, including attorneys fees and costs) can junior lienholders get paid, and then only if their interests are provided for in the judgment of...
Carol Cadiz's answer While more facts are needed and documents must be reviewed, it sounds like you might have the type of debt that is excepted from discharge in which case the appropriate steps must be taken with the court. Bankruptcy laws and family laws are complex, you need to get in to speak to a lawyer asap as there are going to be deadlines on this. Good luck.
Mazyar M. Hedayat Esq.'s answer There are a number of reasons why you may wish to change judges in a case: of right, and for cause. The meaning of these terms is outlined in the Illinois Compiled Statutes, 735 ILCS 5/2-1001.
Substitution as of Right: The most frequently used Motion for Substitution of Judge (SoJ) is that nothing substantive has been ruled on and there would be no prejudice to the opposing party if a new Judge were assigned to the case.
Substitution for Cause: The other primary reason to...
An eviction cannot be removed from your record. An eviction is a publicly filed court matter.
A judgment, which result after a formal eviction, can be placed on your record if it is recorded in the county where you reside. A judgment can be released, however never erased, by the recording of a release signed by the judgment creditor (landlord).
J. Richard Kulerski Esq.'s answer Contact the State's Attorney or District Attorney's office in the NC County where you live. They should be able to send you to a child support enforcement office in NC that can collect for you long distance.
William Harold Mazur's answer Generally, Yes. It sounds as though either or both of the collection agencies have purchased the debt from the company. If that is the case, then the collections agencies can seek to collect the debt from you. It is probably a good idea to consult with a local collections or consumer debt attorney to discuss the particulars of your situation and assist you in case the collections companies violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. A good place to start is by clicking the "Find a Lawyer"...
David Siegel's answer No, a person or entity cannot garnish your paycheck without a judgment and proper notice of garnishment. Unless, the garnishment is a voluntary wage assignment that was signed in the contract for the loan or credit card.
David Siegel's answer If you cannot pay the credit card debt, then you can try to work out a payment plan directly with the creditor. If the creditor is not receptive to your situation, then filing a Bankruptcy will release your personal liability to the creditor.
David Siegel's answer A third party citation can be for anyone the judgment creditor believes is holding assets for the debtor. However, a third party citation is usually summoned to a Bank that the judgment creditor believes the debtor has funds in, or an Employer for wage garnishment. As a result, a debtor's bank account can be frozen or paycheck garnished.
