Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Does the 2 items that cannot be garnished except for taxes and
child support apply in Pennsylvania ?
My wife has a part time job. She clears about $150.00 a week.
Can her pay be garnished ? She has nothing to do with this legal matter.
The company bringing the suit is a nursing home. My mom was a resident
there and is now deceased. She was on Medicaid. They say I am
responsible for a portion of her costs.
I have not talked to a lawyer yet. I have not communicated with the nursing
home as yet. Is the next step going into court in person or discussing
the possibilities of working it out before we go to court.? Maybe a payment
plan or something like that. If something is resolved will I still have to pay
the court costs ?
The former question is a continuing question for "Alex J. Esq. only".
You guys have been trying to squeeze more money out of me ever since
i signed up and paid you. The deal was $32.00 for 7 days of unlimited
questions. I have NEVER been able to find ANYTHING on line that
was not a scam. You guys are no exception.
Thanks for nothing.
If the nursing home and I can work out some kind of payment plan do I still have to appear in court ?

I appreciate all your help so far. Is it possible for you to recommend
an attorney free of charge in Lancaster Pa. I'm on my way to the
the Lancaster office for the aging now to see if they can provide me with a
free or low cost attorney.
Question: If a judgement is filed against me what can they do to me ? I have no job due to health problems, no money and I own nothing.
If I refuse to pay. Is there other avenues they can take.
Aside from that, all they can do if they get a judgment would be to hold it to seek to enforce it in the event you get any money in the future, since you have nothing at this time. Of course, you could also consider bankruptcy which would extinguish that judgment and all of your other unsecured debts.
Recently I had some surgery at a Veterans hospital. To my surprise
they billed me for the surgery. They are taking money out of my monthly
Social security check. Would bankruptcy extinguish this debt also ?
I was pleased with the answers I received from your service.
I am taking your advice and i am going to file bankruptcy.
I have canceled your service last week so I would not get any additional
charges. Please do not bill me again.
I will certainly use your services again in the future. I would be pleased
to recommend your services to anyone.
