If in a lawsuit a judgment is made against a person beyond
If in a lawsuit a judgment is made against a person beyond his ability to pay, what are his options? Can either social security or a modest retirement annuity be attached? If the only asset is the person's home, can he be forced to sell his home to pay the judgment? Would he be able to bankrupt in this situation? Can a person keep his house if he choses to bankrupt?

My husband is retiree and receiving 100% disability
My husband is retiree and receiving 100% disability retirement. Now, this is combination of Army and Veterans pay. His ex-spouse after 19 years of being divorced has taken him to court and claims he chose disability so not to pay her the 1/2 of his retirement when in fact he was let go by military because of his disability about 5 years after their divorce. My question is, can she be awarded part of his disability retirement? My husband is going to be 75 and this is taking a toll on him mentally and physically. She requested a few things yesterday in court but one thing that we are considering is letting a lien be put on our home here in NJ....if we do so, does that lien transfer to anyone she deems fit for inheritance?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NJJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: The individual that is representing him is a retired LT COL but, I do not know how come he hasn't been able to put the point across that my husband's pension is a disability pension and 100% tax free.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I guess that is it for the moment...there is so much going on

I am a recently retired Home Inspector in the State of Florida. I have a client that I did an inspection for 3 years ago who recently found an issue not addressed in my inspection. His costs for the repairs are $5100. I do not think he has an issue since it was not visible at the time, but if he is successful in a lawsuit, can he file against my 4O1K or Social Security benefits for payment. My understanding is he can only get a judgement, which cannot be enforced by the courts.

I have a 8 year old credit card judgement filed against me. Yesterday there was a hold on our bank account. Received papers "today" from a law group representing the creditor stating there is a garnishment against our banking institution. This is a joint baking account. I do not work and the money deposited into the account is from my spouses job. There was no notification of this action. I live in Georgia.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: There was a filing in 2008JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The card was charged off in '06. The amount was no more than $2,000 - now it is over $7k. I need advice as how to proceed. There were various amounts just debited from our checking account. This is causing me not to be able to pay household bills. Would like advice asap please.
I have an elder law question. It is a confusing, out of the
I have an elder law question. It is a confusing, out of the ordinary situation but basically, my brother and I have cared for my elderly mother for over 10 years now. She has been unable to live on her own, due to mostly dementia but other things as well, She mostly stays at my brothers but also with me, for the past year or two, it is about 50/50. She has property we would like to secure, we just sold one house, and are currently together fixing up the other to sell, neither are worth much We do not get paid or any compensation for our care of her. I understand we can not transfer funds or the homes, unless we have lived in her house to care for her for at least two years, but she has lived in our homes for over two years. My brothers house is her actual residence. Neither of us were able to move into her houses, as we both of children to care for. I have a 22 year autistic son, and I just could not leave our home. But she has been very comfortable living with us. At both homes she has her own room, we do have to take care of her colposcopy bag, I have to bath her and take care of things like that. We have to get her food and do everything to care for her. She had also broke her hip and has to use a walker. So that is the background, there is a lot of other background to this situation, but basically this is the main question we have. Do you know if anyway we can transfer any funds, to secure her medicare eligibilityJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: We live in NHJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not sure what you mean, like what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There are two ther siblings, both of whom tried to live in her other two t houses with out paying anything, my sister actually had agreed to pay the taxes but did not for like 3 years so we are working on fixing that situation. We did not file any charges or anything as we are trying to do what we think my mom would, she would not have liked us doing anything like that to her. So that we would like to find a way to secure her funds, her dementia is getting worse, we are going to do everything we can to keep her out of a nursing home, she would hate it, but just scared of the time may come where we can not take care of her. I also think it is not fair, that if we had moved into her house, we could have secured the funds, but we moved her into our homes for over 10 years and we can not do anything. I think that is it
