The court may hold you in contempt here and order you jailed if you cannot pay here.You may want consider Chapter 7 as a long term remedy.You are likely able to discharge all judgments including the legal fees one.

You would want to file Chapter 7 asap here to avoid jail or other sanctions by the judge.

I appreciate the chance to help you again.Thanks.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

they will not let chapter 7 vacate the judgement. If I go to the supplemental hearing with the court commissioner without the attorney fees they could put me in jail and if i do not go they could put a warrant for contempt so either way I am screwed.
Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

I would go to the hearing with court commissioner apologize see what you can work out with them.And I would still file Chapter 7 if you qualify you can get rid of the debts here.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
