Q: 

I applied for a credit card and the APR when I received the card in the mail was 5.9%. When I called the credit card company to perform a balance transfer they told me it was 7.9%. I have it in writing that it is 5.9% until May 1st. The lady who took my application did not explain any of this to me. What can I do?

A:  First, read the small print on the solicitation your received. It might say that the ''teaser rate'' applies only to balance transfers. Your first option is to is to cancel the card. I''m sure you''ll receive another offer in the mail to transfer this balance at a low rate!Even if you cancel the card, I''m sure you want to pay the accrued interest at the lower rate. Therefore, write a letter to the address on your statement for billing problems. Tell them what you told me. If you have the offer you received in the mail, AND it says that you are entitled to the lower rate, enclose a copy with your letter. Copy the president of the bank on the letter and then follow up in writing.Be careful of these offers you receive by mail and read beyond the big, bold type. Best of luck in resolving this...

Q: 

My mother recently loaned my husband and me $5,000 dollars to allow us to try to keep our construction business in operation. We have repaid $1,000 dollars of this amount to date. We are now considering filing Chapter 7. I realize that outright paying her at the moment would be considered a preference and would be disallowed. We have equity in our home and are now attempting to sell it. Would it be legal for her to file a lein against our home to be assured of getting the remaining $4,000 dollars she is owed from proceeds of the sale? If the home does not sell and ends up in the bankruptcy estate, will she recover before the proceeds are split among all of the creditors?

A:  Beth, you have asked many questions. I will try to answer them, but I strongly recommend you consult a consumer bankruptcy attorney so you can discuss with him or her all the facts that should be considered before making any decisions.First, do not sell your home if the reason for doing so is to raise money to pay your debts. The equity in a person''s home is protected by homestead laws in every state. You can file bankruptcy and not lose your home (or your household goods and certain other property).Second, the $1,000 you repaid your parents was a preferential payment, if made with one year of the date you file bankruptcy. If you file bankruptcy before the one year period has expired, your parents will be required to return the payment to the bankruptcy trustee. ...

Q: 

Problems with my husband, I don''t understand why he does this, please help?

A:  Hi Clara, it is so difficult for us as people to learn to really really talk, and what I mean by this is that we do not say what we think the other person wants to hear, we say what we really mean. When we do this is never has to be with anger, it never needs to be disrespectful, but it should always be truth-full. I think you were wise to keep quite after your hubby made his comment, because if you had not it would of become a huge fight over nothing. When he asked you if anything was wrong later, you should of taken the opportunity to tell him, HOW YOU FEEL. Starting with something like, I love you so much and want to really please you.....when we open with something like this, which is the truth it allows him to calm down and get ready to listen to the rest of what you have to say, then...

Q: 

How do I get my house and my dog?

A:  If the dog is licensed in your name, you are the legal owner of the dog. Simply don''t allow her to get anywhere near the dog to steal it from you. The others things in your name regarding the dog are just gravy. They bolster your position should she steal the dog. Get her threats to vandalize your house on record. Either via phone recording or email. Get your butt to the courthouse and file a Protection from Harassment (and/or abuse) on her asap. Tell the judge you FEAR she will harm you and the pet. This works for women. Why not men? Give it a shot. It can''t hurt. Either that or ask for a Protection from Harassment. Change the locks to your house, so that she cannot gain entry anytime she pleases. This woman has serious emotional problems if she''s that hung up about a dog. The...

Q: 

Can my employer retract a job offer after he has sent a memo to everyone in the company telling them?

A:  Can my employer retract a job offer after he has sent a memo to everyone in the company telling them? YES........... why would you even think it wouldn''t be? Although I understand that it was highly rude on his part, and you would have had your hopes up etc... Yes, he can do that... As long as you never signed anything either etc and it wasn''t official or in person, so he has all rights to change his mind...rude as it may be.... :( Yes, your employer can retract a promotion, even if they have announced it. It''s embarassing but they are legally able to do this in the US....

Q: 

How do I change my last name and revert back to my maiden name?

A:  In USA, the procedure for change of name is governed by local State laws. Generally, you will have to apply to your local State Court for change of your name. In this you will be required to give an explanation for your desire to change your name. A fee is usually payable depending upon the State in which you reside, and you may be required to post legal notices in newspapers to declare the change of your name.

Q: 

How to fight for my husband?

A:  if he knows you are the right choice, then everything he does should be for the marriage, not against the marriage. talking to her ''takes away'' from the marriage, it hurts the marriage. So, he should STOP IT. You can and should stop the phone calls. Its very disrespectful that he continues to speak to her knowing that she wants him and has told you so! Id leave his azz if he didn''t stop communication with her. Fight for no one! You should know that you deserve the best and if that best isn''t going to make you feel that you are #1 then they can piss off! move on What I tell my husband is this: I am not fighting for any man. If there is somebody you rather go with, go for it! You need to realize that there is no fighting you can do to...

Q: 

Can i be disciplined on something i have not been trained on?

A:  I guess it will depend on company policy, what you did and the seriousness of the offence If you did something that you should only do if you have been trained to do, then I guess a discipline can be expected. You don''t give enough info to really say, but basically yes they can discipline you. Yes they can. The mere fact that you have not been trained on something does not exonerate you. The question arises why you attempted to do this in the first place without supervision. However if you were advised to do this then you may partly have reason to contest this action but unfortunately it could in any event result in a disciplinary sanction ranging from a verbal warning up to dismissal and of course depends on the gravity of what you have done.

Q: 

Can a cop ticket me for this?

A:  I''ve experienced something like this in the past and no he couldn''t have ticketed you. You were on private property and you indeed had the right away. Seems to me the cop was just trying to be intimidating so don''t worry about it. You''re fortunate he didn''t make you resist arrest and beat the crap out of you. Power corrupts and this officer was proof of that. lp you should have called his bluff He was in the wrong if everything you say was true. If anything you said isn''t true then this post is unethical. that cop sounds like an butthead. And no, police cant ticket on private property. so if u run a stop sign at in the mall parking lot, a city cop cant do anything. And all you have to do if face the consequence of what might happen if you do run that stop...

Q: 

Me and my husband need some help?

A:  Candles, Wine, and Lotion. Give each other nice long massages. You could also do this in the shower. Spicing up the bedroom means getting OUT of the bedroom.

Sorry Maria, exciting and tame are mutually exclusive. you need new scenery, go on a trip and plan on sex in unusual places talkkk dirtyyy. it does a lot. =)...
