My daughter is being garnished direct loans. She

My daughter is being garnished for federal direct loans. She has a lot of student debt and ignored the direct loans (against my advice). She has a good job now, but it's hard to pay Sallie Mae and now the garnishment is going to be a hardship. I saw there are companies that offer refinance programs now. This garnishment just took place. She said she did not see anything come in the mail to notify her of the garnishment. Can you suggest website and information to assist her in the best course of action? Is bankruptcy a viable option? She makes about $55,000 or more yearly.

My house was foreclosed and sold when I only had $6000 left

My house was foreclosed and sold when I only had $6000 left to pay on it. I was behind on payments but had enough to pay nearly double the arrears before the sale. The mortgage company, Residential Credit Solutions, led me to believe that my offer was acceptable and that the sale would not go forward. With those reassurances, I passed on several offers to sell the home. I also passed on bankruptcy. I had several avenues to stop the sale if the mortgage company had not given me those reassurances. Then, just an hour before the sale time, they reneged and it was sold at a substantial profit, none of which came to me. Their grounds, they said, were that they could not know for sure that my funds were available until a few days after the sale was to take place. They also said that I had refinanced many times over the 30+ years I was in the home. That was not true. It had been shuffled around between a few mortgage companies after Countrywide fell apart, but none of those were my doing. I'm convinced that they knew they could sell it at great profit over my paying it off, which I would have done in a few months.

I have filed 13 bankruptcy and have hired an

Hi. I have filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and have hired an attorney in Atlanta, Ga that is over my case. I filed back in April and obviously still in the bankruptcy and objections of the Trustee have just been answered again but not agreed on yet. Objections Hearing was pushed to July 28th. I have contacted my attorney and, yes, I'm aware that I was to report ALL credit cards I have which i did so. As I understand I am not to acquire other debts during the chapter 13 until it is fully discharged. My question is this...all but 2 of my credit card accounts were closed. I'd had most all paid off completely and at $0.00 balance but 2 accounts are still open apparently understanding I'm in bankruptcy. I understand I'm not supposed to use these cards during the bankruptcy however my question is what happens if I do use them? I fully understand I'm not supposed to and have even read i can have criminal implications should i do so without the Trustee granting me to do so. If I used them anyway on anything (luxury or emergency) without the Trustees knowledge what are the CHANCES I'd be found out and my risk involved? If I simply pay those cards "outside" of the bankruptcy wouldn't i still be ok? They are not high volume cards but it would be nice to have some "fallback" funding and I'm not prepared to go through all of the hassle to get them ok'd by the Trustee. I would think it would be almost next to impossible the Trustee would even know if I used them or not? I'm not looking for a "free pass" or for an attorney to say it's "ok to break ANY laws"...I'm mainly Just looking for a feasible answer SHOULD I take the risk and make the decision to use these 2 credit cards on my own myself while still in bankruptcy ;)
