Q: 

Collecting judgement against business

A:  You could probably call the court and ask for the time limit to appeal. I suspect, however, that it's well within 30 days so your judgment is final and can now be enforced. As long as you have the bank information, why not just levy the bank account for the money? The court should have forms and instructions for that. "How long do you wait after the judgement and how do you collect?" Why would you wait? Obviously, we can't know if your state requires you to wait (nor can we tell you anything specific) because you didn't identify your state as requested in the posting instructions. As for how one collects, a bank levy is the easiest and...

Q: 

judgement, reverse mortgage and car

A:  I live in Fl. and have a judgement on me from credit card co. I took out a reverse mortgage and I took the equity in one lump sum. The money is all gone now. I was not under a judgement when this happened. Can the creditor freeze any future line of credit equity payments? Assuming this is your home, no. Also, I have a car that I owe about $8,600 on. It is financed by another lending institution other than the credit card co. The value in the NADA book is $9,925, leaving non exempt equity of $325. Can the credit card co. take car and if so, do they have to pay off the original lender in order to obtain clear title?...

Q: 

Don't law students have any training in 'logic' ?

A:  Sometime before you started asking questions about this case in the legal newsgroups in about July, 2002: Without consulting a lawyer, you stopped paying municipal utilities accounts without having any right to, in order to get the municipal authorities to begin a foreclosure proceeding against the property which is your only source of income, because you thought a foreclosure proceeding would be a good way to get their billing corrected. Even though it was your intent to force the authorities to foreclose, when they did so the case went to a default judgment. Then you filed documents without the aid of a lawyer, and they were not proper, and the property got sold. You went to a hearing without an attorney and with no knowledge about the...

Q: 

How do I put a lien against somebody that owes me money?

A:  1. You have to win a judgement in civil court for the money due you. 2. If you get a court judgement then you can take that order to the person's job or bank to collect according to the limits in your state. The court will not do this for you it must be done yourself. 3. If the person does not have the money to repay you within your state's statue of limitations then you cannot collect. 4. You are required to pay any collection costs and fees up front, especially those not in the court order. 5. You could hire a collection agency to do the work for you if the amount is high enough and you will settle...

Q: 

Garnishment and non-exempt property

Q: 

How do i go about removing a judgement or order made againts me? a friend manage to get a county court judgeme?

A:  Absolute rubbish. You would have been informed of the case being lodged against you. If a judgement was made in your absence then they would NOT have put a charge on your property immediately. That would only be after you had not paid the initial order and they had again been in contact with you countless times. Now tell the proper story and maybe you will get help. If you didn''t receive a summons, go to the court and ask for the judgement to be set aside. Then ask for a full hearing at which you can put your case. go to the citizens advice bureau, or look in the yellow pages for free legal advice, there is plenty out there. go straight away to a solicitor get advise or in uk citizens advice bureu...

Q: 

My cousin has a class B felony and no prelim court date in a year and a half, what''s taking so long?

A:  Have him ask his lawyer and report the answer to you. Anyone answering this question differently would merely be speculating. That does seem pretty long, the charges might have been dropped, or he could have missed whatever dates had been set. If that''s the case, there might be a warrant out for his arrest -- have him call his lawyer or call the court with his info to find out the status....
