Recent Civil Judgment questions

On my credit report there is a civil judgment against me and

on my credit report there is a civil judgment against me and it was filed in 2011, which means it won't get taken off until 2018 which is 2 years away. My question is would disputing the charge maybe trigger company to submit paper work for it to be extended another 7 years. Problem is I never got any paperwork saying that I needed to appear in court. I'd like to dispute it. Not sure what reason to use for the dispute either. Please advise.

Case was reopened in 2015, and judgement was for the plaintiff for $49,000 in June 2016.In April 2016, CH filed a new amended Chp. 13 plan which was confirmed May 2016. The Bank was a creditor and still gets certificates of notice. However the bank is not listed in CH amended plan as either a secured or unsecured claim. Is this allowed?? Does CH have to inform trustee of this new judgement of June 2016 for $49,000.

I filed bankruptcy, due to illness(disabled) but most

Customer: I filed bankruptcy, due to illness(disabled) but most accounts were over seven years. Shouldn I filed due to foreclosure. JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: All my accounts are over 7 old. I filed bankruptcy due to foreclosure. I fell ill and government disabled me. I was receiving lawyer fees. Therefore, I filed and already discharged. Not one creditor appeared at hearing. On my report I have a 2009 bankruptcy dismissed. Advice from lawyer because she refused to go again after I paid her in full. So, ultimately, my questions is why are old accounts appearing on reports? Statute of limitations apply in Puerto Rico. Personal data also incorrect. My mother's name shows up, Margarita and she is deceased. I am Margaret. JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Consumer Protection Law Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you.

for socrateaser onlyI had multiple New York State money

for socrateaser onlyI had multiple New York State money civil judgments in 1994. It was already answered that there is a 10 year statute of limitations of 10 years and renewable for another 10 years. It appears that in 2014 the judgments expire unless the defendant causes any of them to renew. If any of them expire is the defendant forgiven for further legal action or collection INCLUDING IRS?

A civil judgment has been on my credit history. The firm had filed two garnishments. I appealed the first and the bank have up the balance on my checking account. The bank closed the account and after I paid the small outstanding balance, I received a new checking account. But, the attorney for the creditor told me after my first hearing he can only file a garnishment on the balance of a checking account once and can't file on it again.The second garnishment at another bank I have a checking account the bank notified the court my account was out of funds and the firm received no funds. Does this mean the attorney cannot file for a garnishment on the account again?

Background: I was involved in a partnership in 1995-1997.

Background: I was involved in a partnership in 1995-1997. My then partner retired abruptly. The partnership agreement stated that he was to receive certain payments after he retired. I could not meet these payments and I eventually closed the business. My partner filed a civil lawsuit against me personally in 2005 and obtained a judgment against me for failing to pay him.I then formed a corporation in 2005 and opened another business buying and selling real estate. My former partner then filed a new civil action against me personally and the corporation in an effort to collect money from the judgment. This case alleged that I formed the corporation to purposely keep or hide assets from his collection efforts.While this new case was pending, I filed for chap 7 bankruptcy personally in 2008. I listed my former partner as a creditor. The bankruptcy stayed the pending civil case. My former partner did not file an adversary case in the bankruptcy court. However, he did obtain a relief from stay to continue the civil case.I received my discharge in 2012. I closed my corporation and moved from Ohio to Georgia. The civil case continued and I did not contest it as my corporation was closed and I moved from the area. Since I did not contest, the Court granted judgment in his favor in 2013. The civil court entered a judgment in his favor against me personally and against my closed corporation.The reason I did not contest the case was that my closed corporation had no more assets and I believed that the potential debt was discharged as it pertained to me.Question: Is the judgment against me personally valid? I don't care about the judgment against the corporation. Can I file a motion to vacate the judgment against me personally? Is my former partner and his attorney guilty of violating any bankruptcy rules for proceeding with a judgment against me personally that was discharged?Thanks in advance.
