Q: 

How do I get an Ex husband and his crazy wife to stop harasing me and trying to control my life?

A:  My advice would be don''t give up on your kids for anything or anyone. When you collect them, don''t engage in conversation with your ex or his wife and don''t tell the kids how you feel about their dad or his wife............I know this is easier said than done, however as your kids get older they will be able to make choices on their own about who they want to be with and my guess it will be you..............be brave and keep silent and continue to see your kids, get a diary and write everything down that is said or sent or done, the time, the message, everything, abusive text messages can be retrieved for court evidence just don''t get caught up in sending them out of your frustration to hit back, monitor everything including documenting what the children tell you about being picked...

Q: 

Can you tell me how to remove negative items on a credit report?

A:  The quick answer is that most items remain on your credit report for 7½ years. Federal law (US Code Title 15, §1681c) controls the behavior of credit reporting agencies. This law is known as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Under FCRA §605 (a) and (b), an account in collection will appear on a consumer's credit report for 7½ years. The clock starts approximately 180 days after the date of first delinquency on the account. To learn when an account will be removed by the credit reporting agencies (TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian and others), add 7½ years to the date of first delinquency. Subsequent activity, such as resolving the debt, is irrelevant to the seven-year rule. However, if the debt is a...

Q: 

How can a European get Permanent Resident status or Working visa ..

A:  here is the link for the US Citizenship and immigration Services portal which has all the legal forms i''ve been trying to sort through. Talk to an immigration lawyer. Get a good recommendation because not all lawyers are equal. The easiest way to get a handle on things is to pay for a meeting with an immigration lawyer (get a referral through the local Bar Assn. Generally I think she has to put in an application in Germany and wait for her number to come up. The wait for Europeans is much less than other parts of the world. I have heard of people who come into the US on a visitors''visa and then slip off the radar...

Q: 

How quickly must the executor file a Will for probate?

A:  I am sorry for your loss. It is my understanding that there is no set time required by law in Tennessee to submit a Petition to probate a Last Will and Testament of a decedent. Once the will is admitted to probate the the personal representative appointed, the will relates back to date of death.  The assets of the estate are also valued as of the date of death of the decedent. Houses need to be appraised as to antiques and jewelry. In the petition you can estimate the value for filing. There is usually a range given. Consult a lawyer in your area for help. Depending on the size of the estate things could get complicated....

Q: 

With breaks for first-time home buyers and the market being the way it is, is this a good time to apply for a mortgage?

A:  Hello, and thank you for visiting the Bills.com blog. Quite honestly, looking at the US financial system in a disarray as it is now, I would suggest that you hold back on the home purchase. The mortgage sector has a long way to go before it reaches its bottom. I know the idea of owning your home seems to be a very enticing proposition, but it is because a lot of people opted for poorly thought our mortgages that the industry is in the state that it is now. There may be good reasons to wait for your individual situation. If you can use the time you''re waiting to improve your financial and/or credit situation, it may be a good idea to wait. In other words, if you can increase your savings from a 3% down payment to a 5% down payment or even 10% or 20% in the time...

Q: 

Chinese wife has a 2 year card only the marriage was a sham will ICE investigate with my letters to them?

A:  I think if you can prove that she just used you to get her green card, then she''ll lost her green card. Remember, she got the conditional green card which is valid for 2 years only. She might have a problem removing the condition on her own and therefore, will certainly lose it after two years and will return to China. ICE may not take any action because they''re busy with other activities, but CIS would be interested. CIS is the agency of the government which would adjudicate the I-751 petition that must be filed within 90 days of the expiration of the date when she became a conditional resident. If CIS denies the I-751 based on your...

Q: 

Is there a bank that will refinance my house if I have a high debt-to-income ratio?

A:  I cannot say for certain if there is a company that would be willing to refinance your home because you have not provided me with enough information about your situation. If you have tried multiple and reputable lenders, yet you keep getting the same result chances are that most lenders will not do the loan. The lenders see your debt-to-income ratio as too much of a risk, regardless of your credit history. Considering the amount of mortgages that have gone into default, and the amount of homes that have gone into foreclosure many of the lenders do not want to take on the risk of lending to someone with a high debt-to-income ratio. I've written an article explaining why the debt-to-income ratio is important please see DTI: Debt-to-Income Ratio Information. There are alternatives to...

Q: 

I have been trying to pay off my debt but keep finding my self in the same situation. How do I get myself out of this mess?

A:  Let me tell you about some options you have. First, your challenge is to take charge of your situation and create a plan of action. I think you need a plan for spending, a plan for increasing your income, and a plan to deal with your debt. I will start with the tough part of my answer first, the spending. I think you realize you spend too much based on your present income. Stop using your credit cards. Pay cash for everything to get an idea of where you are spending your money. Analyze every purchase. Obviously, I do not know your spending habits, but here are a few areas where people can cut costs: * If you have cable or satellite TV service, do you really watch the premium channels often enough to justify the cost? If you watch only a few shows, see if they are...
