my husband is not on my credit card account and I never gave them permission to speak to him but they did anyways without my permission and they never even asked him the severity questions all the said was what is your name and then told him about my account and balance.
Credit card companies are not supposed to do this; however, there is very little you can do about it, other than to pay off the credit card they are calling about. You can also report them to the federal agency that regulates credit card companies.
What is it called? I want to look up an example maybe to format mine similarly. Do I just write dear judge can you apply the extra month I served towards the bond at 20 dollars per day? Then send it to the clerk with my cause number?
You can't do that. The extra time you served is lost. What you might, perhaps, do is file a petition to modify the sentence with respect to the fine imposed. That is assuming you were assessed a fine at all.
The individual that signed the promissory note is currently unemployed and is unable to work at this time as he has suffered an injury while on the job. It seems that he does not have any other assets that I can put a lien on at this time.
The attorney can ask for whatever he or she wants in order to settle the case. The incentive for you to comply is to avoid having a judgment on your record. If the attorney is asking for interest it is almost certainly the case that whatever agreement you signed for the medical bills included a...Read more »
There should be no need for an eviction if you have already moved out. If there is a hearing date, be sure to show up for that. That said though, if you got a notice of motion for dismissal, that means that one side is attempting to dismiss the case. Contact the clerk of the court to find out what...Read more »
My husband passed away going on 7 weeks now and In his will he left me the executor of the estate and left it up to me to choose what to do with everything.

I requested a letter of validation over the phone. They sent me an email, but it doesn't have a physical address for the collector on it. Things just seem a little off. They are collecting on an old payday/online loan, the lender wasn't licensed to lend in my state, does that void the contract?... Read more »

If you are being sued on a debt and you have received a summons you still need to go even if you are on disability, have a limited income or are indigent. You can still be sued even if you are indigent or do not have the means to pay. Do not ignore a court summons. If you are indigent it is most...Read more »
Dealer never repossessed vehicle, even after I returned the keys and provided the adress to the vehicle. Car shows clean title on vehicle reports but I never received it. They never took me to court over it, nor is it on any of my credit reports. I want to sell the vehicle but don't know what I can... Read more »
This isn't really a personal injury question so take my answer pessimistically. In my opinion you should return the car to the dealership as you've forfeited your ownership of it in exchange for release of either your auto loan or lease obligation. At the very least you need to contact the...Read more »
I received notification from The Debt Masters ( based out of California ). They recently acquired an old debt from Telekom Deutschland; a phone provider I used while stationed in Germany in 2013. To my understanding of German Civil Code BGB Section 195, the SOL has exceeded according to the... Read more »
Generally, courts have held statutes of limitations to be laws of the forum, so that statute applied might be from the place in which you are and can legally be sued. It sounds like that's Indiana for you, so you should check with an Indiana lawyer. But, it is reasonably likely that the statute has...Read more »
I was in an accident involving only myself. My vehicle was then towed. I need to get some of my personal belongings out of the vehicle but the towing company wants to charge me to get my things. Can they do this? I have all the paperwork and the keys to the car.
If your car was towed because it was not driveable, the towing company had a right to tow it and an obligation to store it, probably under police order. If you do not have towing on your car insurance or you do not have car insurance, you are responsible for the towing and storage fees. The...Read more »
Before I withdrew from school, the college wanted me to stay so they offered to let me do the online adult program. Two weeks before I was to do the online program, they called and said they weren't going to allow me to do it because my advisor didn't want me to. They waited until the last minute... Read more »
No, you are the hook for your student loans even if you did not complete your degree. You aren't paying the school at this point you are paying the loan provider. The school already got their money.

Was it really a Summons? A Summons is issued by a court. It generally means that you have been sued, and it should be attached to a Complaint. Contact an attorney who handles civil cases immediately, as failure to answer a Complaint will result in a Default Judgment. It is also possible that this...Read more »
I received a notice to appear to answer questions about my nonexempt property subject to proceedings supplement. I am paying a garnishment for one company right now. not sure what can or can not be done and if it is mandatory to go
It sounds like you may be a defendant in a small claim, upon which a judgment may have been entered, and for which proceedings supplemental to execution are pending. Long story short: yes, you need to go to court. Moreover, get an attorney to help you with this, as you apparently have a judgment...Read more »
Probably not, but it can certainly affect the outcome if the date is relevant and material. NOW, if the debt collector is fraudulently representing to the court that a payment was made in order to get around the statute of limitations, that is very significant! Contact a consumer rights lawyer and...Read more »
I am not sure of the debt being disputed, and I'd like to know exactly what this company is trying to sue for. But I'm worried that if I call them and ask for copies of the bills, will that be considered acknowledging the debt, and allow them to reset the clock? Or is it just considered... Read more »
I get paid quarterly and use the money for bills. If they were attaching my paycheck they can only get a percentage. Would that stand in the case of my bank account since I won't get paid again for 3 months?
I was sued by an apartment I moved out of 3 years ago. Apparently they had taken me to court and had a judgement entered against me. The court said they served me a notice which I never got. They said I owed them for damages. That debt was sold to a collection agency who is taking me to court based... Read more »
