Help... in 2010 we file for bankruptcy (due to medical) and

Help...in 2010 we file for bankruptcy (due to medical) and the case was settled and completed the same year.The problem we are having NOW is that during the bankruptcy there was an order avoiding judgement liens on our property for 6 creditors. (I have a copy of that order from the judge). We paid the attorney/attorney group a $250 fee in addition to the initial bankruptcy charge to have the attorneys office record this order in our country clerks office to remove the liens. (I also have a copy of the cancelled check showing we paid this fee and they cashed it). The problem is this.... we just took out a home equity loan as out credit is now excellent and the bank found that 3 of the 6 were still listed on the county tax records as liens dating back to the bankruptcy. The bank lending officer did verify that these liens were the ones that should have been removed from that time period.The attorney/office that was used is no longer in business and it is now 61/2 years after the fact. I need to have the remaining 6 creditor liens released from my property and do not feel that I should have to repay some one else (atty) to do this. What is my legal recourse. How can I go about getting this corrected?? Please I need an answer asap. thank you

My ex-wife has a student loan that she fails to make

Good afternoon,My ex-wife has a student loan that she fails to make payments on from time to time and I just so happen to be a co-signer. I have documents from the judge stating that she was responsible for the loan. However, I am still responsible to repay the federal student loan. Since she has had several late payments that I have had to also pay for, what is my best option for resolving this matter as she now has bad credit, can't find a new co-signer to remove me from the loan and I want this $32,000 loan @ 8.99%(v) loan to go away? I have enough money in my 401k to pay this amount off today but even if I get the legal documents written up, notarized and signed, will she be able to file for bankruptcy and no longer have to pay me? Please help, thanks..Dennis

I live in Texas and 7 yrs ago I had to file for bankruptcy

I live in Texas and 7 yrs ago I had to file for bankruptcy chp13 anyway I got discharged after 5 yrs and paid everything I was suppose to under the bankruptcy. Soon after I start getting a ourstanding bill from my HOA claiming I owe them 1500. I went to a lawyer and he said it would be no problem because if they were included in my bankruptcy the should have already been paid. I left it at that. I hadn't heard anything about it and @14 months later which brings me to the present I get a letter stating that I had a default judgement against me to the tune of 4600. now the are able to foreclose on my house. my question is the can they do that? can I sue the HOA? I FEEL LIKE IM GOING THROUGH THIS ALL OVER AGAIN

Can they take my spouses truck to satisfy some other debt?

I have a lot of health problems right now and have been out of work for 6 months. I have been able to keep payments up with my in-laws' help but can no longer do that. To make it until I get back on my feet it looks like my husband and I need to get rid of two payments, a truck and a motorcycle. A bankruptcy attorney said we would have to file bankruptcy to keep my husband from also losing his truck he is making payments on. Is it true that they could take his truck too to satisfy the debt on the other vehicles?We are in Texas. My husband's truck is a 2016 that he uses to drive to his work as a carpet installer. We live with his parents so have no house.

I hired an attorney to handle a case for me. #1. even though

I hired an attorney to handle a case for me. #1. even though I filed BK to have him help me save my home that was being foreclosed on he still lost it. He forgot to put my house on the plan. #2. I was not discharged from my BK. Two very important things he didn't do for me! How much time do I have to go after him for misrepresentation/not doing his job right? Please don't tell me that there is a time limit.
