Q: 

I filed Chapter 7 over seven years ago. One of the items listed on my filing was a vehicle loan that was co-signed by my father. He just received a phone call about paying this debt. Is there a statute of limitations for collecting a debt from a co-signer after the debt has been discharged in Chapter 7? This is the first contact my father has received about this since I filed over 7 years ago. Thanks for your help

A:  The bankruptcy of the principle borrower does not relieve the co-signor of liability for the unpaid debt. The statute of limitations on such actions are controlled by state law.Creditors are not generally prohibited from filing suit on debt outside the statute of limitations, but the defendant has an absolute defense if the statute has passed. The co-signor defendant has to answer any suit filed and plead the statute of limitations.It may be that a strong statement to the collector that you are aware that the debt is outside the statute and will defend on that basis may be enough to keep the creditor from filing suit. -- Cathleen Cooper Moran...

Q: 

what happens to a 2nd mortgage if the first is paid off one or two, foreclosed on or three, not paid on ?

A:  No, what you heard is not true. every second deed of trust has recourse. That is they will sue you for any balance owed and you both are responsible for the loan amount in full. The first will foreclose and sell the home at some point in time. If the lender has recourse in your state you may owe a balance there as well after all the atty fees and shorts are accounted for. The fact is your atty in the divorce did not protect you in this case by forcing her to refinance and get the home out of your name. That happens every day as they think every one will do the right thing. This is her screwing your tail to the wall so to speak. This may force you into a bankruptcy filing as based on your story is probably where she makes her next stop and you will get stuck holding the bag....

Q: 

Is there a way to get married in front of God without it being legally done by the state?

A:  dont think so sorry Yes....get married in an Islamic mosque Sounds to me like you want all the benefits of marriage, but not the responsibility. You want to be married in the eyes of God so that having sex isn''t sinful - but don''t the responsibility that goes along with it. When you are married - you are bound in legal matrimony - if it''s not ''legal'' is not a marriage. God doesn''t create loopholes. of course, just go to city hall, somewhere there they will do the marriage and you sign the paper just don''t sign the marriage licence. I did that on my balcony with my husband...

Q: 

Is there a specific site for paralegals with no experience?

A:  THE reason you aren''t getting any hits is because TODAY''s job market is fierce - especially in the field of law. Employers today in the field of law want their employees to have BACHELORS degrees - they won''t hire you with anything less - there are just too many unemployed Legal Professionals.

Q: 

Is there a standardization of identifying a police officer?

A:  No, there is no standard. I''ve never heard of a department that has a specific requirement for your name tag. When I was in the State Patrol, they issued me a tag with my initials and last name. When I transferred to another department, I had to order my own. Because my name was short, I put my entire first name. Some have their rank (officer, sergeant, lieutenant) and just their last name. Many supervisors get two-line name tags with their rank above and their name below. Sometimes it is just a matter of the entire name not fitting, but it usually a matter of personal preference. Many officers don''t want the public to know their first name. I prefer to be addressed by my first name, so it is in a larger font than my rank. There is no standard rule concerning police name tags, or even...

Is there such a thing as temporary car registration?

A:  No. If you are living in, and working in Utah you are probably a resident of Utah and should transfer your license and registration there.

Q: 

Is there a law regarding employers and comp time?

A:  as you are considered a professional you are an exempt employee in the US, they can work you 100 hours a week without any additional compensation, if they offer comp time that is a benefit the employer offers and as it is not required by any law they can offer as much or as little as the wish, contrary to some the other answers you received there is no federal law that governs comp time,vacation time, etc, all this info is available from the FSLA I hoipe not. It is not the role of government to substitute for standing up for yourself and negotiating the terms of work. It may be a function of unions, ect, but not government. That is known is Socialism and unfortunately as people want more and more from government in...

Q: 

I want to know, is there any way to get my passport back from my previous company?

A:  Biff, HONESTY is sometimes foolishness even in the eyes of those that ask the question... Contact ''Seamans International Union'' (SIU) they''ll definitely help you out since they are in fact ''short handed'' right now. Why would you give your passport to a ''company''? You went to work in the Middle East and you forked over your passport to God knows who? Are you crazy or stupid?...
