JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Alberta,canada
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: the other day we had a meeting with our trustee and they told us that if we came up with a reasonable payment plan , that they will not garnishee my wages,and that will give us enough time to sell our property,and with the profit we will be able to pay off portion of our debt.
JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.
