My husband and I purchased a motorhome several years ago, he
My husband and I purchased a motorhome several years ago, he was an Agent Orange 100% disabled vet. When he became sick and died I could no longer make the payments so volunteer called and ask them to take it back which they did. I had been making $300 a month payments on it. When the sold the unit they said it did not bring enough to pay it off and now have a judgement against me for $50,000. I am a widow on a fixed income I don't have the money to pay it off, I offered to pay $300 per month for five years and they turned it down, I again made an offer of $400 they turned that down as well. They said they would get the money from me one way or another. In the meantime my home is paid for I transferred it to a friend in hopes they couldn't touch it. Now he won't return it because he says he is keeping safe for me. They are going after it and say I must appear in Miami at their offices to answer questions under oath. Yes I have a nice retirement but when I pay my bills I have nothing left over. I purchased a condo in Panama City Beach, FL in 2012 from the VA their lawyers told me to stop making payments which I did. I want to know can they get my house, do I have to go to Miami to answer their questions under oath will a notary do just as well. How do I get my house back into my name. I'm under so much pressure I don't know where to turn
Was evicted for non payment of rent in Oct/Nov of last year
Was evicted for non payment of rent in Oct/Nov of last year (extended unemployment). 7 to 8 months later received a court notice being sued for unpaid/lost rent. I don't have the amount needed to pay in a lump sum and tried to negotiate with the landlords payments while I worked towards acquiring a lump sum. They said no, I'm in another state working ( this is in Chaska MN , I'm currently in Nashville TN) and only recently started a new position , the court date is Sept 12 and would be difficult to get to. All else failing how can I keep any court assigned payments/garnishments from being crippling>? What recourse do I have? note, not trying to not pay.
Texas Law Question re judgments: (hanky-panky against me) 1.
Texas Law Question re judgments: (hanky-panky against me)1. WHO ELSE, if anyone, besides a “judgment creditor”, as defined below – is entitled to “aid from a court”?2. DOES “aid from a court” – essentially mean having the court do “execution”, i.e. via sheriff or such, or other pressure by the court?3. AND PARTICULARLY, what does “other judgment creditor” (as used in below definition) mean or refer to. Does that refer to “by assignment of judgment” – i. e. “standing in the shoes of” – an original judgment creditor – or a prior “assignee” judgment creditor?4. Again, ANYONE ELSE, entitled to “aid from a court”, besides a “judgment creditor”, as defined below?5. Someone is telling the court, that they are “successor in interest of a final judgment rendered in favor of a Law Office, P.C. – a 9 year ago forfeited entity (charter forfeited by Secretary of State, never revived, judgment never transferred, i.e. “assigned”). Is there even such a thing as “successor in interest of a final judgment”? – or have to be the actual (current? assigned?) “judgment creditor”, as defined below?The Texas law I found:Sec. 31.002. COLLECTION OF JUDGMENT THROUGH COURT PROCEEDING. (a) A judgment creditor is entitled to aid from a court of appropriate jurisdiction through injunction or other means in order to reach property to obtain satisfaction on the judgment if the judgment debtor owns property, including present or future rights to property, etc.(1) "Judgment creditor" means a party in whose favor a judgment has been rendered, whether a plaintiff, counterclaimant, cross-claimant, third party plaintiff, or other judgment creditor.Udo Birnbaum

I won a small claims suit with garnishment about a year and
i won a small claims suit with garnishment about a year and a half ago . I was receiving monthly payments and they ended up laying that person off. I think this person now has a new job but I need to know how I go about finding that out (i.e. can the courts demand that info or is there a low cost or free service) and when I do find that out, how I proceed in getting new garnishment from new employer
