I attempted to file a contract lien (claim of lien) by affidavit

I attempted to file a contract lien (claim of lien) by affidavit with circuit court of Maryland, including evidence of due process and dishonor (demand notices for settlement) and memorandum of law, including the rights to file the lien without any judicial determination.The claim was returned in one day by the deputy clerk declaring it is "not a recordable document" without any explanation. They keep the filing fee. Maryland does allow judgment by confession which is how the claim of lien arose, though I used the term nil dicit to justify the claim.

for socrateaser only Pursuant to New York State

for socrateaser onlyPursuant to New York State law is it mandatory for a defendant to give a "confession of judgment" to plaintiff lawyer in order to enter into a long term installment payment agreement? Also, I feel a defendant has to be careful of a signed stipulation which would be court enforceable. With this understanding what are defendant options?

Hello, my question pertains to a confession of judgement. Backstory:

Hello, my question pertains to a confession of judgement.Backstory: my ex husband and I owed a lot together and the loan is in both of our names. In the family court order of our divorce, he has sole exclusive responsibility for paying for the lot and any deficiencies or costs ever arising from the lot and agrees to hold me harmless. I quit claimed the lot to him. He could afford to pay for it, but he didn't want to so it went to foreclosure. I threatened him with contempt of court order and made him ask the bank if he could pay for their court costs and resume payments, but they said no, the whole thing has to be paid right now or we foreclose. So they foreclosed and said they would come after us formth deficiency so I told my ex he had to work out payments with them.He has just informed me that he has worked out a deal, but he and I both have to sign a confession of judgement right away or they will file a judgement against both of us tomorrow.The deal is that they have agreed to allow him to pay a certain reduced amount each month towards the deficiency for the next 14 years, and if he does, they won't file a deficiency judgement.So it looks like my choices are the certainty of a deficiency judgement being filed against me in the immediate future vs the confession of judgement. I've never heard of this term until an hour ago. I am very uncomfortable admitting any liability for this money some I have a court order saying that I'm not responsible. Does my family court order still stand if I sign this confession of judgement? For example, if he decides to stop paying the agreed upon amount next year, what recourse would I have to protect myself? Would I still have the protection of the court order and the ability to file a contempt charge?I need your help in understanding the pros and cons of having a judgement filed against me now vs the any risks or benefits of th confession in judgement. Note that I am a single working mother with limited assests...nothing that could be seized, I don't think. But I certainly hope to have assets in future years. Thank you.
