This question is for law educator, Esq. As you may recall, I was DPOAHC for my mom, who passed in June, 2016. The local lawyer is DPOA for finance of items in mom name : house contents; bank accounts; storage facility items ; safe deposit , and now probate . 1) I am remainder beneficiary of trust ; property sold to relative of founder of law firm ( no relation to current lawyer) 2) empty house now for sale. Four attorneys said to get probate/estate lawyer independent of this re: fiduciary breach and self interest ; ALL in agreement I am entitled to trust copy and accounting of what is going on. I did contact one but haven't heard back yet 2) updates: new trust advisor , who does communicate , says they are going to close safe deposit; look at and appraise storage contents ; the worrisome issue:,I signed probate waiver ( more forthcoming) and the probate judge sent letter outlining % of what lawyer (s) would get including a percentage of trust assets . 1) How can I speed up reply of attorney I e-mailed to take a look at this? Would a letter from out-of -state attorney help ( laws are different-can't advise) 2) Am I entitled to get a complete financial accounting from all parties of everything including trust assets and bank accounts as well as what has been spent ? 3) they want me to come back and go thru storage of things I want; if items are to be sold , can I bid on them ? Thanks

I have a question regarding a Federal Judgement. I was
I have a question regarding a Federal Judgement. I was ordered to pay a fine to the DOJ as part of a criminal prosecution. It has a 20 yr statute. I have diligently paid the for for 13 yrs. I am now retired with my only income being social security. They offset my monthly check the maximum amount allowable. I have made a case with the financial reports I submit to the DOJ annually that this is creating a hardship & they won't lower the offsetWhat recourse do I have? Can I 'petition' the sentencing judge with a motion to 'waive' the requirement to pay or order the DOJ to adjust the offset amount? If yes----how do I do that--do I need an attorney? Do I need to appear in court? What else can I do?
I would like to ask something about credit card lawsuits. I
I would like to ask something about credit card lawsuits. I am being sued for this matter. Six months ago, I requested and applied for consolidation of my credit cards. I have six credit cards that I applied for consolidation. However, one credit card company denies being part of the program and do not wish to be in this program. I was also experiencing hardship and unemployed so; five of my credit cards accepted the consolidation program except for Discover Card. I talk to the credit counseling representative and ask them the reason why they cannot accept it and they said they do not want to accept it. I was surprised then because all five credit card of mine accepted it, Chase, Home Depot, Walmart, Citi, and American Express. I talk to Discover and ask them myself about denying the credit counseling and they said I can pay less if I go directly to them without the credit counseling involvement. However, the monthly payment they were asking is more or even twice than what I can afford paying with all of my five credit cards combines through a credit counseling program. So, instead, I did not pay attention to them and bothered to send my payment unless they can accept my payment through the credit counseling program I enrolled. After three months, they demand instead that I pay the balance I owe in full through a debt collector agency. I was not expecting them to be demanding because I had credit consolidation 10 years ago and it works until I fully paid all of my credit card debts. Now, because of my hardship situation, I began to have delayed payments until I was not able to catch-up. After six months (this month I received a summon yesterday, June 2 about a lawsuit from Discover) and demanded that I pay in full. So, I went to our Regional Court Justice to answer the summon and wrote a complaint because I tried to settle with them through a credit counseling before, and they denied it and now demanding the full amount in a lawsuit instead. The court granted me the in forma pauperis so, I send it back to the person or law office suing me. My question now is, do I talk to the law firm suing me to settle the debt or make arrangements with them and accept the terms they will be giving me in resolving my debt with Discover card? Will this case becomes worst if I appeal and go through my complaints with how they treating me in paying them in full instead of giving me consideration on paying them monthly on terms or amount I can afford through credit counseling? Discover Card did not work with me when I was willing to pay them through a credit counseling program and they did not give me a reason why they will not accept the credit counseling program like the rest of my credit card debts. Now, they are saying I was in default with my payments with them through the summon I receive just the other day (I receive the letter from a credit debt collector of Discover Card stating a demand for full payment last February of 2016) I never thought it will go into this lawsuit situation because I had credit cards 10 years ago that took me several months without payment before I enroll it through credit counseling program and I was able to resolve and pay all of them without having to deal with one credit card company who do not want to consider a credit counseling program and sue me . And I consolidated my credit cards since November of 2015. Now it is June 2016 and never heard from Discover Card until this lawsuit 2 days ago and telling me I default my debt with them. They should accepted the credit counseling program then because that is all I can afford to pay monthly like all of my credit cards who are willing to work with me because I am still struggling in making payments with all of my debts currently, and I cannot afford the payment terms Discover Card want me to settle with them which will cost me twice the amount I can afford to pay in monthly basis compared to the amount I am paying my other five credit cards combined in credit counseling program right now. Thanks Francis Catoera

I had a contract as an association manager with a national
I had a contract as an association manager with a national non profit organization. This organization has several affiliates/regions and as a result of not budgeting for one of it regional entity's the organization has become financially unstable. I had repeatedly foreworn the board of this type of future outcome. I had shown them financial statements that they approve each month on the possibility. The president and treasurer have had access to the banking information for years and now they sent me a letter to return my payment for 5 months totaling 20k. They state in the letter that I had a fiduciary responsibility to report the bleak financial solvency of the organization to the board which I did. They are asking for the return of money they paid and approved for services rendered and still owe me an additional 10k for services I have already rendered. In the letter they request me to send them a bill for the past 5 months and then they will pay me back after they have cleared their debts. My question is how do I receive my money for services rendered and not give them 20k which they already paid and approved?
This is an amendment to my prior question in regard to what
This is an amendment to my prior question in regard to what options I have as a defendant in a small claims judgment where the plaintiff did not appear and a default judgment was issued. The plaintiff has made a motion to remove the default judgment. The hearing of this motion is scheduled for 5/18/2016. Is there anything that I can do to challenge this motion and cancel this hearing date before 5/18/2016. His reason for making the motion is that "(he) mixed up (his) date at trial ...".Thank you.Robert Holbrook
