You really need to speak with an attorney. You have too many moving parts in what appears to be a short sale to get useful advice that would apply to your specific situation from a free advice website. When do you need to close by? What is the bank telling you? Are you scheduled for a sheriff sale?

Retain a landlord-tenant attorney and also try to press criminal charges for defiant trespass. Good luck.

Answered on Mar 26, 2017

There is no reason or benefit to filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. However, you may get some additional time by filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and you will need to eliminate financial liability for this and any other debts that you have.

No, the complaint can only be dropped by the prosecutor and judge they can take the complainants wishes into account, but many times don't as the summons is captioned: State of New Jersey vs. You.

Not them vs. you. Once the complaint is filed and probable cause found for its issuance and your served it is out of the hands of the complainant. Get yourself a good lawyer or risk having a criminal record of conviction.

Q: once i recieve a summons , can i get the complainant to drop charges?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law for New Jersey on
Answered on Mar 25, 2017

More information is needed to answer your question, but it depends on the type of complaint. If it is for a traffic ticket or criminal charge that has to be done by the prosecutor and judge, it is easier with a civilian complaint. Obviously it is good if that is what the complainant wants to do, but it is by no means dispositive on what is going to happen on any complaint. Get a good Lawyer is your best bet.

Much more information is needed to answer your question such as the exact charge, town you were in etc. In any event many towns have regulations stating you must move your car weekly or twice a week if your going to park on the local streets.
