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 father passed away and there is no money left from his
My father passed away and there is no money left from his estate. A dentist is billing my step-mother for the remainder on his account and she doesn't work and is on a fixed income so I told her just to let him know the estate had been exhausted (he had some big medical bills that she paid). Now the dentist is threatening legal action against her, but she never signed anything and the paper work showed he was the person responsible for the bill. Can he make her pay this bill under the laws of 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: Not at this timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, just trying to help my step mother find out if she is legally obligated to pay this bill. Thanks!

I'm in the middle of a buyout with my company. However,
I'm in the middle of a buyout with my company. However, while both sides agree on the total amount, the payment schedule they're offering is lower than what's stated in our OA. The OA states 10% down and 24 equal payments after that. Instead they're trying to offer about 5% down and 17 payments with a large balloon payment on the 18th month. They are claiming that any higher payments will render the company insolvent (which I know is not true, but I cannot prove it). Can I reasonably refuse anything lower than what's in the OA?In addition, they're insisting we split the legal fees, which I feel should be their responsibility. One of the partners initially offered me the buyout which I later accepted, and this same partner also stated that they would cover the legal fees but has now changed his position (I have transcriptions of the conversation where he agreed to cover the legal fees). So is it reasonable that I pay part of those legal fees for the buyout process? I'd think not, but I want to check.
Well, I have 2. I live in PA and my wife just passed away
Well, I have 2. I live in PA and my wife just passed away from cancer. She has several thousand dollars in outstanding medical bills and many thousands more in outstanding credit card debt, all in her name only. I know they are two separate types of debt. But it was all accrued due to her illness and we have no joint assets to speak of. No life insurance. No financial assets whatsoever but a few thousand dollars in the bank. So, my question is, can I be held legally liable for debts in her name and could it affect my credit?JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: PA. The issue has not really materialized yet as She just passed away and her accounts are not yet in default but I cannot afford to pay them and survive myselfJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. She just passed today actually. But These debts are out of my ability to financeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of
I am in a jam because my father's estate has too much
I am in a jam because my father's estate has too much indebtedness to be sold at a fair price to pay the bank and all the mortgages off. When my father was alive, he had no equity in house and obtained public assistance in the form of 24/7 live in help from the State of Connecticut. So, does the State come before the 1st mortgage? Does the first mortgage bank pay it off? Could I do a pie chart of all the indebtedness and pay each party a percentage of what is owed?
