I was in a car accident, and we were sent a bill through an insurance company. (We are yet to pay it) After, about 3-4 weeks later, he sent a personal letter with his phone number and a separate bill for the part he needed. It is hand written. We are not sure what to do.
As stated before,... Read more »

If it was a worthless check, then a charge is possible. It sounds like you have not been charged yet, so do not worry about it unless cited/arrested. Then hire an attorney top get it Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged.
Someone fraudulently cashed a check I sent to pay my trash bill. The trash company never received it, so they still say I owe the bill. Who is responsible for getting the money - the bank, or the trash company?
answered on Jan 13, 2023
Most likely you.
If someone intercepted a check you wrote to pay a bill and wrongly cashed it, you can legally pursue that person and possibly your own bank as well as the bank that cashed the check.
But you do still owe your trash company and should pay it. This time I recommend... Read more »

How was money left for you? If you actually owned the money then sue Bank for Conversion in Sessions Court. You probably have to prove you are sole Next of Kin.
We are faced with this occasionally. There is less than $15000 in an account, no funeral expenses, or last medical bills, no surviving spouse, and multiple children. Do we split the funds between the next of kin or does it go to the first one that contacts us?

You have to comply with the Intestate Succession Statutes T.C.A. Sections 31-2-101 et seq. Claims against a Decedent are rarely your concern, and you will know one by a Court Levy. Giving money to the first claimant all the time will get you sued for Conversion. Hire a competent attorney on... Read more »
I have a court ordered lien for the clients proceeds and an order against the firm that represents the client. The firm state the knew about the lien but not the order against the firm’s and they gave the client the money instead.

You will probably need a TN attorney to get the Clerk and the Sheriff to execute a Levy against the firm's Bank Account. It would be necessary to know what Bank they use. There are Fees for each Levy. You apparently have a Judgment but now you have 10 years to collect.

Take out some cash to pay off some bills. I have approximately $60,000 in a retirement account another $30,000 in cash. What would be the best avenue to take in my quest? Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

If you put a Deed of Trust against that real property, the lender will foreclose immediately upon any default, not just non payment of the Note. I recommend not borrowing against the home and do not suffer a Judgment against you. The Judgment will be executed against the property.
there’s 3 different charges, one going back 3 years. i heard that they go away after “7 years off being on your credit report.”
answered on Feb 27, 2021
Broad question- "what happens to whom?"
A financial institution's "charge-off" is an internal accounting and regulatory function; a charge-off by your lender in no way affects or reduces your legal obligation to repay the debt.

Ten years from your last payment on the debt which is a breach of contract.
I called them to complain about this error and get the money back because they had left 3$ in my bank acc and they said 7 days to get a check... okay whatever 10 days later I called turns out they processed the check. I read TN penal codes and nothing discusses this issue only what the check cashed... Read more »
answered on Oct 12, 2020
No.. You gave them a check, and they cashed it at their leisure. This happens all the time, and the payee is not breaking a law by negotiating the paper early. You could try to sue the payee for breach of contract, but it is not advisable.

It likely does not mean that. Don't worry, it doesn't mean you weren't approved either.

I settled over an $800+ bill in court and paid it off. Now the same collection agency on behalf of the same hospital, is saying i owe another $1900+ from previous service dates before the aforemention $800+ bill. Is this even legal? What should i do?
answered on Aug 11, 2020
Could be legal. Sounds like you only settled one bill. Without seeing the other bills, it's hard to say whether they can collection for various issues including statutes of limitations. Consult local counsel to best determine your options.
I was wondering if this would be a good place to start asking questions and if not, is there another chat forum that I could utilize to get a better understanding about this particular career field?

I have no idea what you are asking for, but start calling around for a lawyer to help you. Most attorneys will either help you or refer to somebody else that can. You can look around for websites, but you really need to talk to one either on the phone or in person.
