Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Who is claiming you were overpaid? What exactly have you done already to try to resolve this?
Thank you for your reply.
You needed to file an appeal of the over payment within 30 days of them giving you notice. If they are still trying to collect, you are going to have to engage a local attorney to file your appeal to vacate their assessment in the superior court, because at this point the court is the only one that can reverse what they are doing here. The only option you have here though is you need to file to vacate in the court.
Changing your name on everything would not help you because they can still get at those assets under what is called the Fraudulent Transfer Act. Thus, you need to get a local attorney and you need to file to sue in court to vacate this award and penalty.
Did you have any additional questions about this issue?
Thank you for your reply.If you are elderly and have disabilities you can go to the local legal aid office and they can provide low cost or free (depending on your assets and financial situation) legal assistance to you. Also, you can call the state bar and ask them for assistance in locating a pro bono attorney (free) to assist you based on your financial needs.
