I am a dentist who got fooled into buying a dental practice from another dentist.I signed a contract to pay him 2300 dollars a month for 7 years, he carried the paper and financed me, no banks involved. The practice has turned into a piece of junk and I want out.the loan is unsecured and he says he will garnish my wages at my part time job if I default on the loan.The contract also says That if I default the practice reverts back to him.Is it true that I cannot go Chapter 7 bankruptcy because I made more than $100,000 last year?

I have a judgment against me for an account that was not mine.

I have a judgment against me for an account that was not mine. Because I live in a community property state, the collection agency can legally collect against me, and they have garnished my wages. I did not receive any advance notice of he garnishment, prior to money being with held from my pay. I contacted the payroll company & received the info to contact the collection company. I have offered a settlement, but since they already have the judgment & garnishment, I'm not sure they will be motivated to settle. About a week after money was withheld, I received a packet of papers from the payroll company, about the garnishment. There are documents in the packet that look like I can still request a hearing about the garnishment. I'm not sure what the process is, or which hearing request I should complete, & for what reason. Can you assist?

I am a non-custodian parent and live in Georgia. I got divorced

I am a non-custodian parent and live in Georgia. I got divorced while my ex and my kid were living in Texas. About two years ago my ex got re-married and moved to New York with my kid. When we got divorced in 2006 my salary was 68K and the CS was fixed at 884 PM including medical. I later revised the amount (about 2010) to $1000 (on my own accord).- Given that she is re-married and surely not making less than $80K PA, is it worth for me trying for a modification with a possibility of CS being reduced though I make $120K base as my salary in GA?- My son is 12 and a very sweet and a "Gifted & Talented" kid but since the marriage, has stopped picking my calls and now not returning them. I have heard my ex also stating that she and her husband are envious of my relation with my son. I have also witnessed a big change in behaviour from my son. I can surely see that there is some coercion or pressured environment being created around my son, what can I do?

my grandfather passed away in May 2011, I filed his taxes for

my grandfather passed away in May 2011, I filed his taxes for 2011...the IRS contacted me at the end of 2012, telling me I needed to file his 2010 taxes..I didn't have any informaiton for 2010...they said they had a list of what was reported to them and they would provide it...I complied....then I was sent a letter that i owed $13k for the 2010 year...payable within 2 weeks!!!! however, when I did his taxes, it came up that IRS owed him $400...Do I really owe this.. how do I know they arent setting this up for failure based on the information THEY provided??? So stressed out. I didn't know his 2010 taxes weren't prepared...and they knew this. If I contest it...they plan do an audit.. BUT on what?? I don't have anything from 2010. Do I have to pay the $13k??????
