I filed a chapter 13 Bankruptcy in the state of Maryland.

Hello, I filed a chapter 13 Bankruptcy in the state of Maryland. This is my second filing within the same year, the first chapter 13 Bankruptcy was dismissed without prejudice. As a result, I only have a 30 day automatic stay. I wrote a letter to the judge asking for the automatic stay to extended, so that I can pay my creditors. I have a hearing scheduled to impose the automatic stay. My question is what should I expect from this hearing? Will my creditors be attending as well to challenge the extension? I am trying to get a grasp as to what to expect from the hearing. Please advise, thanks!

In a civil case, regarding employment discrimination. if a

In a civil case, regarding employment discrimination. if a case is dismissed by want of prosecution, or dismissed with prejudice, can it still be pursued via arbitration? The defendant has filed a motion to dismiss with the argument that I signed an arbitration agreement if it involves discrimination matters. So I don't object to the dismissal, but will my right to pursue in arbitration also be dismissed, or is that separate from the court ruling?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes. I filed w/ EEOC and they gave me right to sue. I filed pro se in US district ct of Northern IL. The defendant filed the motion, but i have not filed a reply to it. I have a status hearing coming up and am concerned that if the case is dismissed, it won't go on to arbitration, which is what I want to happen.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The case is regarding ADA discrimination and sexual harrassment. The defendant also filed a brief in support of their motion, asking for dismissal with prejudice. Thank you.

I was in an accident in 2014. I just got served today, May 4

I was in an accident in 2014. I just got served today, May 4 2017, however I noticed online that they originally filed this case in February 2016.In march of 2016 the summons was returned unserved. Turns out the process server was looking for the wrong apartment even though the correct address is clearly written on the paperwork. He wrote, "unit 8 confirmed the defendant is not the tenant in apartment 9". I was the tenant in apartment 8 at the time and I never spoke to him. It's possible he spoke to my wife though.Two questions: I thought if they couldn't serve you in 120 days that the case could be dropped. Second, if that's not the case then couldn't I argue that they failed to serve me by looking for the incorrect address?

TX, Yes, I have a trial date in 3 days, on May 4th, in a up

Hi Pearl!JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: TXJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: YesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have a trial date in 3 days, on May 4th, in a up court for a consumer action. I signed for a vehicle completely in my name, for my sisters use, and now am being sued by the bank for the remainder of the loan. My sister returned the keep to me in awful condition after a year and I had no choice but to have it voluntarily repossessed as I could not afford the repairs and the payments. I plan on suing my sister. I have already filed my answer with a sworn affidavit stating the above, but I am wondering if I can file an amended answer and bring her into the suit? Even if the trial is 3 days away...? It would buy me more time to get prepared and also save me the hassle of starting another lawsuit. If so, what forms do I file?

I am Plaintiff and received a notice from the court for a hearing on the Defendants Motion to Dismiss for which they are seeking to dismiss all 6 Counts.1. The Notice had a Section titled Further Order of the Court that says: Defendants Motion (Pleading #7). What does this mean?2. What does it mean they called a hearing versus just ruling on the motion? (I sent a reply) Is it a good sign for me?3. What should I expect to happen at the hearing? I have never been to one.4. Do I have to present anything or will the judge ask me questions?5. How should I prepare for this?
