I work for a small (13 employees) startup. They owe me 2
I work for a small (13 employees) startup. They owe me 2 months plus 2 weeks vacation based on my letter of employment. If they go bankrupt (they are currently 2 weeks overdue on my last paycheck) will I be paid my vacation time? If I quit, it may trigger a bankruptcy so is there a legal way to get them to pay their wages on time?
My 87 year old mother has quite a bit of unsecured credit
My 87 year old mother has quite a bit of unsecured credit card debt with multiple creditors that she can't afford. I'd like to stop making payments and negotiate a debt settlement (20% of total). I understand this will damage her credit score and any debt written off could be considered income. If I'm offering a payment, can a creditor force my mother into bankruptcy or put a lien on her home?
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 't know if I've selected the correct lawyer - My mother
I don't know if I've selected the correct lawyer -My mother called me with a debt collector on the line, my mom hasn't handled any of here of here own finances 2002, she my dad passed, at the time she could of handle her own affairs but ask me to do it - today at 72 yrs old she doesn't has the ability. The last time this happen was in March when old tax bill that I forgot (I also had 3 strokes and on disability as well) from MA went several years with nothing and then a letter with to garnishment from the MA DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE was attached, we are in a repayment plan. I not trying to dodge a bullet. am correct in I state and federal taxes can attached social security & pension ?My mother does get social security and a widows pensions from my father whom worked for GM. She had nothing in the bank, no savings not a dime and live paycheck to paycheck, over the last few years when I got sick and they garnishment my wife she helped us paying for our childrens day care so I could go to physical therapy to learn how to walk and talk again, She doesn't even on a car, she , she lives very modestly about 3 hrs away and on her own (something I am not sure that she will be able to continue to do) she is in poor health and really has nothing. The debt service call was about a judgement in 2010 for $16000 , I'm not quite sure how, I believe it was through 'default' - in the past I have appeared for her and handle these things but I can't remember this one, neithern can she - I have looked at the court records and the debt was filed one in my county not hers (Port St Lucie) it states she was spoken to by phone - I know it doesn't matter that neither of us remember this account or the court hearing because the have a judgement -which there trying to collect on it. Of course I can't settle the judgement because I can't payout a lump sum or have the ability to make a reasonable effort to make a payment arrangement on the judgement, apparently at the time I / we was paying a $100 a month on the debt but I stopped that was all they would tell me, she owns her house she is upside down in, her credit is aweful - while I was on the phone with the debt agency she stated "she has good credit, she owns a house, she has a car ' and trying to tell her this isn't true, but of course they don't want to hear it. The judgement paperwork states speaking with her the phone at the time the hospital for 22 months after a car accident I think that's why no remembers this debt or the account it's attached to, but I do know I can't fight the judgement and even if I couldn't I don't have the money for legal representation. So I have no idea what to say, we have always tried to help each other,my wife and I are racked up to our eyes with our own debt issues and we have just recently had to make several repayment deals because while I'm disabled it is tough for them to attach me (and my mother was disabled before she hit retirement age) but my wife keeps getting garnished and we keep paying because we can't come up with a bulk amount to start a better repayment plan and the cycle keeps going, I just wanted to give you a better scope of what is going on, if I had it's I would give it to her, my mother even gets meals on wheels I would sincerely ***** ***** as I did tell the debt agency collector I would contact her today, can they just 'dig up a judgement ' any time and force collection ? Should I tell them she is paying a state tax lien, the state / gov garnish social security wages ? I have nothing to offer I can't even make a constructive repayment schedule. I would tell her to go to bankruptcy court and file but I am afraid that she won't pass the way and means tests as I have run the numbers and she barely has -$300 a month because of the pension income, the debt agent stated that she must have something must of happened because they don't just reopen these thing for nothing, I was also told there is no statue on judgements, I lost half my collective brain capacity during my illness.Is there any way I can keep this from be publicly posted ?All help would be sincerely appreciated,
