Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Are you asking if sending this notice will work to discharge a debt?
HJR-192 superseded Public Law (that which passes as law today is only "color of law"), replacing it with public policy.This eliminated our ability to PAY our debts, allowing only for their DISCHARGE. When we use any commercial paper (checks, drafts, warrants, federal reserve notes, etc.), and accept it as money, we simply pass the unpaid debt attached to the paper on to others, by way of our purchases and transactions. This unpaid debt, under public policy, now carries a public liability for its collection. In other words, all debt is now public.
I understand your position and this has been making the rounds of the internet since there has been an internet. Is there a specific question I can assist you with?
I would basicly like to know if this information is insubstantial or if it can be substantiated, And if it is good information how would somebody use it?
No, it's not a correct interpretation of HJR-192 and it doesn't work.
HJR-192 was the law used to outlaw gold contracts.
This was done to protect US citizens against changing values in US currency compared to gold
It also allows citizens to stipulate, in the contract, what medium of exchange is to be used if they desire to do so.
So, if you and the other person agreed, you could require or be required to pay the debt solely in gold or silver or ritz crackers, whatever.
But it doesn't mean that you can cancel a debt you agreed to by sending a notice.
HJR-192 was also modified by other laws later. Technically, it isn't a law it's a joint resolution.
Would you happen to know anything about Indemnity Bonds and U-CC1 filings?
Some but not a lot. You'd need to open a separate question on that issue.
I happen to know this one because I've seen someone get into trouble using this argumetn as well as a couple of similar arguments that are out there.
I was just curious because my brother has been reading all about it
There are A LOT of BS theories out there. If it doesn't sound right it usually isn't. You'll hear people say that they don't owe income tax because they weren't paid in fold and silver, that their birth certificate is some kind of publicly traded stock certificate, that they don't have to have a driver's license or pay taxes because they are a "natural person", etc.
Those will absolutely get you into trouble if you subscribe to that theory.
Also, If you don't mind me asking a quick question relating to dept collectors and small claims court?
You can find a lot of stuff on the web that sounds good until you actually study it a little more.
I just got a letter in the mail yesterday from a local dept collector stating that they are going to request the court to issue a erit of body attachment for failure to appear. The only income I have is SSI which is exempt and I have no assets. Do you have any advice for me in terms of getting the judgment set aside so I can actually appear and defend myself?
What was the failure to appear? What were you supposed to appear for? Also, what is your disability?
they list the original creditor as follows: E-Z Car credit Monte Carlo Date of service 3-26-2010 amount due 5,956.65
and a bad check for cap n cork in 2005 when i was 14 years old
But what were you supposed to appear for?
Contempt Citation Rule to show cause
and that was on the 6th
What was the show cause for? You had to have been subpoeaned or ordered to appear for a Motion to Show Cause? What did you not do that you were supposed to do?
By the time I found out I had a judgment it was too late. They failed to properly service the notice of claim
What kind of case is it?
You're going to have to open this as a new question. We're so far off of the original one that I'm going to get into trouble with the website if we continue.
Not a problem, I do thank you for your time!
Since you're a subscription customer it doesn't cost you extra to open a new question.
PLease don;t forget to leave a Positive Rating on the original one.
I certainly will
I just gave you an excellent rating
I'll look for the new one when it posts. I'll be offline for a little while but will pick up when I see it if no one else has grabbed it.
