I had a lien filed against me for a judgement against just me (not spouse). My home is held a Tenancy by The Entirety with spouse. The judgement holder tried to foreclose on my "survivorship interest", which went nowhere. Do I have to pay this to sell my house or is there some workaround?... Read more »
You interest could possibly be executed upon. Most buyers will not take your title however. Judgment Liens are good for ten years from date of Judgment, unless extended, which happens frequently. Even it the Lien lapses, it will still be in your title unless the creditor or a court removes it....Read more »
Obviously you did not check out your target prior to suit, which is a mistake. It may or may not be ever collectible. In your situation, hiring a collection attorney is probably the best option because learning about assets and collection methods would be difficult and useless.
I called a bankruptcy lawyer in 2020, she said it was not worth going bankrupt if I was on social security. Social security could not be garnished. So I just stopped paying the loan company, the balance is a little over $3000.

But it may give SW as your agent the power to hire another party to perform the contractual duty. If under $ 25K you might sue both carriers in Sessions Court and let them blame each...Read more »
Went to my former employer got booked in and given a court date. My question is since I have never been on this side I am not sure what kind of attorney I need to speak with over this matter?! I live in the country side my neighbor is claiming my dog roams at large and killed one of her chickens….
As as a former LEO you know to keep your mouth shut, including on this forum. Take care of your dog for awhile so no further trouble erupts. Hire about any decent, competent attorney to represent you, as you need him to talk to the DA. Be prepared to make Restitution, probably at the first...Read more »
You can try to get the Sheriff to get a Warrant, but it is doubtful. Put together proof of payment, the Contract, and the actual owner's Deed.
