My husband a I have a large $90k judgement on us along with

My husband a I have a large $90k judgement on us along with 2 other family members who are the actual ones you go us in this situation by taking our identity we believe. However before we found out about it wenall ready were being sued by capital one/share builder and had no money to travel outo of state to defend ourselves or higher a lawyer. The state they sued was Washingtin. Anyway we now have a judgement that was entered into 2 years ago. I guess since they had no luck getting anything they have now filed a foreign judgement on us in our home state of alabama.First I'm not sure if these judgement is actually dischargeable or not, so I'm not sure if bankruptcy will do any good but for the question I will act like it's not dischargeable and ask can we get arrested for not paying now that a judgement has been filed here, we read that Washington was a state that could still arrest for unpaid debts.Secondly and very important question we are judgement proof as our only income is disability and we have no other assets really. So should we be trying to send what we can ( we figured 175 a month is what we could acut ally do and is also 25% of the income) to show we are trying to pay or do we just not pay nothing at all since we are judgment proof at the moment and probably for a long time. Thanks

I was on a hookup site and matched with a girl who's profile

I was on a hookup site and matched with a girl who's profile said she was 18. She asked for my # and then started texting me. We flirted, she sent me a naked pic and asked for one back. So I sent her one. We flirted some more and then it died out because she lives in SC. Now I'm getting a text saying that it's the girl's father and that she's only 15 and that if I don't give him $295 to shut her phone off, he'll give my # to a detective and have me arrested as a sex offender. Do I have any rights in this case or I'm I screwed?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Just today he called.

I got a denial on an immigration application that has taken over year in processing singularly because of an incompletely filled medical examination and vaccination record form by a designated civil surgeon. Not only does this have significant ripple effects on other things, any attempts to appeal this decision will incur additional costs on me due to the negligence of the civil surgeon. Please advise what are possible options.JA: What state are you in?

I had a verbal agreement with an HVAC company's residential

I had a verbal agreement with an HVAC company's residential expert to install what is called a hyper heat mini split heat pump. On his won, without telling me or asking me or getting my permission he substituted a unit that is much less efficient. In an email he admits this but says he only charged me for the lesser unit. I didn't find out about the switch until the installation was completed two days later. It has been a year and I see it does not heat in low temperatures. Does the email give me evidence sufficient for a small claims court suit?JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: This is Virginia. I paid a total of $6000 fo the equipment and labor. I would be charging breach of contract and/or fraud.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I went to court the other day asking $25000 but not knowing procedures. I have to send a bill of particulars by three weeks, and trial set for June 30.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There was incompetence in several areas of their work. I did about 5 things for the installation myself. They didn't provide a base for the unit ever.
