Even though an attorney cannot represent you in small claims

Even though an attorney cannot represent you in small claims court… If the people I am suing in small claims court ( for putting me in a situation that has cost me thousands of dollars) happen to have an attorney on another matter ( an eviction case with me) is that attorney allowed to inquire about whether I filed for bankruptcy?Basically can an attorney contact me via email to ask me to send them information about a bankruptcy I might have filed outside of the small claims matter?

I am litigating a personal injury case in Pinellas, County, Florida. There were two defendants the operator and the owner.

Just received notice that my pay will be garnished 75% from

Just received notice that my pay will be garnished 75% from a truck purchased 13yrs ago by my ex. At that time I found out my ex went to his friends car lot purchased the car and had somebody forge my signature. He knew all of my info since we were together but i was not present when he purchased the vehicle. He used an alias that he worked under to buy it. And since they can't locate him and obviously my SS is legal I'm getting stuck with the outrageous bill. How do I fight this?

I will be calling the plaintiff's attorney to try and reach an agreement to give me another 45 days to look for a new rental place among other issues with the house. If we are unable to reach an agreement, I will file a BK7 before the trial date. The Question is... how much time will the Automatic Stay give me before I'm court ordered to move out?

FOR KJL LAW I'm currently in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. My

FOR KJL LAWI'm currently in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. My mortgage company obtained a 'modification' of the automatic stay several months ago whereby I agreed to pay a set amount extra each month to cure post-petition arrears.The need for some previously unexpected vehicle repairs has arisen. I was thinking of simply contacting my mortgage co. (or rather their attorneys most likely) to ask if they could modify or suspend the payments we agreed on for a short time. Is this the correct process? Is there any likelihood or success or does it really depend on the mortgage company? I realize there is nothing compelling them to agree to change the payments!
