I have a few questions regarding the bankcruptcy laws in florida. Can someone help me?
I have an annuity, can they touch this?.
Does a future employer consider this a bad thing?.
Will I be able to purchase a car?
Great, thank you Kirk. I am not a bad person, just in a bad situation. I had a law suit pending and was promised by the attorney I was working with I would be recieving roughly 25K. This turned out to be all wrong. I got nothing.
Secondly, I am currently employed full-time and am about to finish an on-line course that should earn approximately 3-5k additional income each month. I am just behind the 8 ball right now and don't know what to do. I have an annuity that has a little over 100k in it, retirement fund, etc. I wanted to know if I would have to surrender the annuity if I did this
So that means I could keep it?. In addition, I currently have my car as collateral on a loaan. I would be responsible for paying this back correct?.
How horrible would bankcrupcty be for me?. Would that discourage an employer froom hiring me?
How horible would bankcrupcty be?. My son attends a very prestigious private school. Would they look badly on this?. What about future employment?. The annuity is TOD account, not necessarily life insurance. I would be able to keep my life insurance-correct?. I just need to know about employment with a new job. Also, I can keep my house, correct?. And is it still published in the paper if you file?. And you are certain about the annuity. without a doubt
I would have to surrender all credit card accounts right?. Can they sue me or garnish my wages or put a lien on my house?
I am a nurse. I am finishing a medical transciptioning program. I just don't know what to do. My income will improve greatly, here shortly. Is it still public knowledge?. Can they garnish my wages, sue or put a lien on my house?
I have always been early on my house payments. Never a problem. Thank you for your answers, you are wonderful. Just still wondering about being sued, garnishing wages, lien on house?. How long will it take for my credit to be re-established?. Could they try to sue me and take the annuity or my retirement?
So, it would be better to file bankcrupcty than let things go into collections right?. How long would it take to re-build my credit? Would I be able to purchase a car? Would I be able to keep a credit card?
These are my final questions
Would I be able to keep a credit card? Do you think I should do this? Will I be able to purchase a car?
So, it would depend on the dealership whether or not I would be able to purchase a car right?
I currently own a platinum amex. Would they dump me even if I paid them?
What should I do. Please help me
I had great credit. I hate this. So sad. So, I should no longer tap the annuity for money. Keep it safe for my son. You have been wonderful. Thank you so much. I just feel that this would be a serious life changing event, I am just uncertain as to find a way out. Your an angel. Thank you
Thank you. I will no longer tap my annuity then for money. I might just have to bite the bullet and do it. Any tips as to what to look for in a bankcrupcty attorney?. Someone fair and honest? Just go online and find there ratings?
Thank you so much for everything. I will include your tip and fabulous rating. You are a doll. Good night, and thank you again. My fears have been so much more decreased. I really appreciate it.
You are more than welcome. Just waiting to rate you!!! I think my son will end up being an attorney. He is such a wonderful human being, I see him helping others, just like you!!
