Zoey, I am in a funky bad mood, because I got two

Hey Zoey, I am in a funky bad mood, because I got two conflicting legal opinions on the same matter. Here is a quick review : I am going to be arrested on a federal charge or charges in Atlanta (pending, and I am at liberty right now). I want to defendany charges in San Francisco at my Trial and I am NOT going to fight extradition from Atlanta to San Francisco. Now, one attorney told me that since I am not going to fight extradition to California, that my "Initial Appearance" before a Judge, will be inSan Francisco and that the Bond hearing will be in San Francisco. HOWEVER, a different attorney told me, that my "Initial appearance" in front of a Judge will happen in the state that I am arrested in (Atlanta, GA) and that the Bond hearing will also happenin Atlanta. However, if you say that the Bond hearing WILL happen in Atlanta, I'm not so sure being "Bonded Out" would be in my best interest, until I get to California.......... because I am The Second Coming of Christ (Stuart Jesus Gibson Satterfield Christ)and I am impoverished right now, and I would not be able to pay for bodyguards and security > If I get bonded out in Atlanta (and I would need security from Atlanta to San Francisco, if I were at liberty........and I don't know how in the World, I would arrangeall of that.) So, what is the Truth ....... Out of those two conflicting attorney opinions ? One opinion about how things could, or would go, came from someone at this website (but it wasn't you). And the other conflicting opinion came from an Attorney Providerwith *Legal Shield* (He was the one that said > "Since you are not going to fight extradition from Atlanta to San Francisco...... Your "initial appearance" to be in front of a Judge WILL BE in San Francisco." So ZOE, I really need a sound and accurate accountof how things are going to happen according to federal law, and especially according to federal law, in regards ***** ***** first "initial appearance" in front of a Judge AND federal law in regards ***** ***** between two different states in the United States.The charge pending will be alleged bankruptcy fraud (personal bankruptcy). Signed, Confused in Atlanta

My husband and I separated in October 2012. We have one daughter

My husband and I separated in October 2012. We have one daughter who is 4. We also have a vehicle that is in both our names, which he drives and is considered his. We set up a child support order which states my husband is to pay $507 a month in child support payments. He thought the amount was too high, and that he should only pay $350 a month. He told me if I didn't sign a paper to CSED stating I would accept $350 a month for child support, then he would either claim bankruptcy or call the bank to come get the vehicle. My question is, is that blackmail? And what are my rights on the situation?

My other female friend was in a relationship with this guy

My other female friend was in a relationship with this guy for 4 years. Over the course of 4 years the guy borrowed 1100.00 from his dad. MY female friend (We'll ca;; her sue) gave two money orders to his dad one for 500 one for 600. THen SUe's boyfriend we'll call him Derich wanted to buy his dads car. Sue agreed to buy the car on a 100.00 a month payment plan. Derich's dad was hiding the car and the money from the bank and court because he was about to file bankruptcy so he filled out the bill of sale and title stright to sue and stated that she paid 5000.00 cash for the car clean and clear. Sue didnt but the agreement was that she would sign that and only pay 100.00 a month till debt was paid. Sue and Derich broke up. Sue is on disability and is now payning all house bills alone and cant afford the 100.00 payment. On top of the fact that derich talked Sue into getting a 320% intereste title loan on said car. After montshs of trying to pay it off and derich not heping even though he said he would sue sold the car for 2750.00 paid the 1350.00 woed to the title company signed the title to the new owners and paid back bills with the rest. Soo. Sue no longer has the car. Sue knows that morally she owes the money and will start paying when she can, but they have nothing on paper where sue agreed to pay anything. The only paper is where they signed the car over saying she paid the 5000.00. Can they come after Sue in court?

My ex-wife filed for Ch. 7 bankruptcy and I found out that she lied on the form about her apartment rent. Was $630, not $850. Her form stated that she had $165 each month, when really it should be $385. Isn't this Bankruptcy Fraud?? How do I go about reporting it?

I have an opportunity offer to me to payoff my credit card

I have an opportunity offer to me to payoff my credit card debt for 25% on the dollar. I know right off the bat it's not 100% on the up and up simply because who would actually do that. After emailing the guy Here's the story I'm hearing from him as to why he is willing to do it. He owns an LLC that is in tennessee (he lives here as do I if that matters) and it's in chapter 11 bakruptcy. He says he has money in his merchant account he cannot access since it's in bankruptcy ??? Not sure about that part. And he is still able to perform refunds but not run new charges. So to access the funds he is willing to refund the amount of my payoff to my credit card in exchange for cash. LONG story short, I have asked him from every angle I can think of to find the scam portion of this and I can see how on his end this is 100% unethical and he could possibly face criminal charges. My wife is concerned on my end that I could get in trouble. So what I would like to find out here is OTHER THAN the possibility of a charge back to the card of the amount charged, and the loss of the cash I hand him for doing it (which by the way he says i can wait 30 days to pay him to be sure the credit goes through) do I face any possible criminal charges, or other fees by doing this. Obviously a 75% savings on credit card debt is REALLY appealing since we have stopped using cards and are actively trying to pay them off, so do I stand to loose anything more than I'm seeing here, and could I face any criminal or legal hassles by doing this. To add he has already provided me the account number and routing number to use if I want to do it, and asks for NO money for 30 days after I pay it off so I can see it's clear and good before I pay him anything. If you need more details to answer just lemme know. I'm an expert in the appliance trades section so I know info is the only way you can answer here, however I don't know what pertinent details you need to answer this. Thanks!
