Is the time period for collecting on credit card debt calculated from the date of the last credit charge? Say a creditor is trying to collect on credit card debt that includes charges that are more than 6 years old (older than the statute of limitations) can they still collect on those charges or...

The only thing that actually matters is whether or not you intend to pay the debt or file for bankruptcy to eliminate this and any other dischargeable debts that you may have. The relevant statute of limitations is six years.
When judgement is entered in small claims court decision (NJ, less than $3k) - is post-judgement interest automatically applicable if it is not explicitly ordered by judge?

It sounds like you may have received a charge letter, pursuant to 7 C.F.R. §278.6(b), did you respond? You need an attorney to help you mitigate the penalties you are faced with. The USDA or AG's office can be very challenging to deal with.
It really depends if you signed as a guarantor of the bills, or did you not sign anything. Ask them for proof that you signed as a guarantor before you make anymore payments. Also remember that being a power of attorney does not automatically make you liable.
I filed for bankruptcy in August 2019 and received a discharge in November 2019. My lawyer stated that my student loans (I had 5 federal and 2 private which had long since gone to collections) would never get discharged so he didn't attempt to file for an adversary proceeding. I had two Sallie... Read more »

I heard that payday loans are illegal in NJ. I took 600 put and paid four payments of $206 . I also heard that since they are illegal I only have to pay the principal. Is this true,? The rest of my cc and such ate in good standing so I don't want to file for bankruptsy. What can they do to me,,?
Think this all the way through: If the payday loan creditor operates its business anywhere in the state of New Jersey there is a really strong possibility that payday loans are NOT illegal in New Jersey. What can they do if you do not repay? They can sue you.
The difference is a wage garnishment vs a levy. Wage garnishment is up to 10% of weekly pay. A levy is on an asset, including a bank account. It does not matter that it is wages, because unless it is social security, it is not exempt. Hope you see the difference
I do not believe so. While it does protect against default judgment, and it does force creditors to only charge a 6% interest (cap), being that Post Judgment Interest Rates are not that high, I would not think so
You really need to seek an in person consultation where the attorney can see all the paperwork to give you a proper answer, but expect to pay for the attorneys time as that is not part of the normal criminal free in office consultation.
I loaned multiple people money this past year. The money was loaned to people who were at the time long-term friends who agreed to pay me back ASAP. All of these people live in NJ and I have personal information (Addresses, etc) for all of them. I have texts showing them asking me for money and... Read more »
You should go to Court, but an attorney is not going to be willing to handle your cases, since it would not be cost effective. If you are really in such bad financial shape, why would you ever loan money to anyone?
Yes, it certain can, after the creditor gets a Judgment against you. To properly answer your questions and address your concerns, the best way to handle this is with an in person consultation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
I owe $10,000, which represents a remaining balance due to my divorce attorney. I have been paying this balance overtime at $50 a month for the past 10 yrs interest free to a law firm that filed for “N.J.S.A. 2a:19-1 Assignments For Benefit Of Creditors” a year ago.
