I have one default judgment filed on 12/5/2001, and on 4/4/2003, an abstract of judgment was filed on my homestead. Come forward to 2013, the judgment is still attached to my properry. Only mow the property is not my homestead. and
I have entered ia contract
to sell the property. I had no knwledge thzt there was a judgment , but the title
company found it. from what I have pieced together, the debt originates in a Bank of America credit card, which was assigned to WAm , a debt collection agency. The abstract was filed by Atty. "S", attorney for WAM, AND "S" placed an attorrney's lien for his fee together with the statement,
"the judgment in this cause may not be released without the joinder of 'S'.
A certified letter was mailed to "S" on 4/12/2013,, to date he has not responded.
The letter to WAM came back as undeliverable.
My question is how am I suppose to get a release if the attorney will not respond and the debt collector does not exist ?
