According to the covid stimulus package, those who are in default of their student loans will not have their tax refund garnished. My question is: Does this apply to only 2019 tax refunds, or will it also apply to 2017 and 2018 refunds? I am entitled to refunds for the past three years and never... Read more »
The stimulus does not involve tax year 2019--because 2019 tax returns are not even due until July 15, 2020. Moreover, If you have never filed tax returns for tax years 2018 or 2017 you will probably not receive any stimulus check.

Your question states both maintenance fees and a rent statement, as well as mentioning your landlord. So it does need some clarification. If you file Bankruptcy to discharge debt to the landlord, there is no way that you can expect to stay in your apartment and have a lease renewal. That would not...Read more »
It sounds like you need to speak with a mental health professional about having the dog prescribed as an emotional support animal. They can be kept even if there is a no pets policy.

No one really knows right now what is going to happen to people in your situation. But in my humble opinion, if you go to Mexico, you will likely have to stay there until at least we have a new administration in the White House.
