  1. Is there a time limit for a Credit card company to garnish wages. Judgement 9 years ago and they took money from bank account , then they released account after a year or so. Now many years later with no further correspondence they garnish wages. I have received many pre approved offers for their cards (Discover) Clueless of what to do. ..
  2. 1. I understand that a close held corporation (100% owned Sub S Corp.) is considered self-employed for child support calculations but I cant find that written down anywhere. Is there a general set of parameters that determines if someone fits the self-employed category? 2. I also understand the deduction of depreciation for self-employed income is not allowed in most cases. How can I find the cases where this deduction was allowed in Tennessee? First question is most important and thanks for any documented information on these subjects.
  3. When there is an old will that a deceased relative has, what happens when two of the four beneficiaries are deceased? Neither of them were married or had children. The will was written in 1987 ?
  4. Why does the government help people who purposely cheat the government with their taxes and people who try to better themselves by continuing their education can not get any help or debt forgiveness at all. This debt follows you wherever you go. I graduated with my BA and wanted to continue into a Master's in my field. After my divorce I had to take out student loans in order to just graduate with my undergrad and attempt to enter the master's program in my field. I acquired student loans that equal over $60,000. I could not complete my master's due to being a single mother with no time and no help. Now I am constantly being harassed to pay these back, which I acknowledge that I took on the debt and need to pay it back as I am able. But I have also met several people who have not paid taxes for years and years and owe as much if not more than I do. They can retain a lawyer, granted that takes money also, but at the end of it, they can get it reduced to paying less than $1000 back to the government. They may have to pay a lawyer $5000 - 10,000 but that is a lot better than owing your life to pay off student loans. I went to school to support myself and my children and to go into a career that I had a passion for but after my divorce and taking on these stupid loans, I could not achieve that goal. On top of that I feel like a failure and be harassed daily about these loans when I am unable to make payments for whatever reason ( unemployed, tragic vehicle accident that put me out of work for a while and created more debt and on top of that, I went through a two year battle in court with a man who violently raped me, causing me to be out of work again because of injuries and appointments with lawyers, court dates and just the stress of the situation. With all this said, I would like to know where do I start within the government to express my frustrations and if or when will there ever be help for me and others like me. Thank you for listening and I hope to get a lot of feed back and guidance for this issue. Lee Anne
  5. If someone filed bankruptcy and did not list you as a creditor but listed you as income, can you get your money owed?
  6. Can you legally waive your Miranda rights if you are under the influence or intoxicated? ......... I am currently in a criminal issue with the court....on the day of arrest the detectives took me to an interview room where multiple questions were asked and vague answers were given , however the DA now is trying to use this interview as a confession and of course I'm trying to fight it . I am represented by a public defender , and doing some of my own research to make sure proceedings are proper and fair toward my defence. I DID NOT sign a waiver of the Miranda rights , however the lead detective has audio of my saying I would talk with him from the scene of arrest .Then about an hour later , when I was taken and placed in the interview room ( where full recordings and video are available) ... The question I was asked was " do you remember your Miranda rights" and I stated" I knew them and was aware of them ".... And at that point questions proceeded and most answers given were very vague and a lot of " I don't remember or i dont knows" but there is some possible incriminating answers that are trying to be used against me. *** yes , on the day of the arrest , right after I left the interview room and was placed in the county jail .... drug and intoxication screens were given for detox issues with all incoming inmates due to medical policy. So there is a record of my being intoxicated or under the influence. Can anyone help me with this ? I need any case sitations or legal insight to present at the argument in a future suppression hearing because obviously I need to suppress the evidence of the alladged confession. Just to answer the obvious questions.... The crime(s) I am charged with are NON VIOLENT PROPERTY OFFENCES.... Thank you for your help and guidance !
  7. My aunts husband of 30 years recently passed and left her a living trust of the house they lived in. She is in a dementia facility and me an my cousin are her POA's . Neither of them had children.. We found out that all the joint bank accounts are now hers and that is what she will have to pay her bills for her staying at the assisted living facility . I have so many questions but mainly I was wondering does he have a right to get a percentage of the estate since they were married for 30 years ? Also can the executor sell the house and acreage before she passes away since she is in this facility? Thanks in advance for you feedback
  8. Recently found out the executor of my aunts husbands will has been into the safe deposit box at the bank where my aunt had a joint account with her husband. I asked him if he took anything out of it and he stated he did get paperwork. I called the bank and asked why they let him get into the box without someone representing my aunt and they stated he had his paperwork stating he was the executor of the owners will. He has taken things from the home that belonged to my aunts first husband and was told that they belonged to our late uncle but he has not offered to bring them back. I am planning on contacting a lawyer this week about this but wondered if there is any way of getting the items back. His executor duties were to conduct business and pay bills and execute the will as stated in the will .
  9. I am writing this on behalf of my wife, as she is very distraught over the death of her father, and she's having a tough time dealing with the details. My wife's father (my father-in-law) passed away about 3 weeks ago. He left a will. My wife's oldest sister has the will, but so far when asked, she has avoided providing my wife a copy of the will. My wife's oldest sister has said that she was left everything, but without seeing the will there is no way to know if this is true. The oldest sister has supposedly hired a lawyer, who supposedly told her that it was going to take about 3 weeks before she would be able to find out how much is in the father's checking account, etc. There is a home that Zillow says has a $100,000 value but my wife has no idea how much equity is in the home, and how much is still owed. The oldest sister has said that she intends to keep, and live in the house. There is a large pickup truck that is supposedly worth $20,000, of which $12,000 is supposedly still owed. My wife expressed to her older sister that she would like to have this truck, if possible (having no idea what is actually in the will). There are also other assets, such as all of the house contents, a small business and all the equipment, such as two cargo vans, painting equipment, etc. My wife's oldest sister just called my wife and left her a message saying that if my wife wants the truck my wife needs to immediately make a payment on the truck, and make an insurance payment on the truck, or the truck will be repossessed. What should my wife do at this point? Just send her sister the money and hope for the best? Make a payment directly to the finance and insurance companies, and hope for the best when her sister wraps up the estate details? I have a hunch that the oldest sister is simply named executor of the will, and the estate is supposed to be split 3 ways, between the three sisters, but no way to prove that without being able to see the will. This is what the old will stated, prior the the father changing the executor to the oldest sister. In the previous will his ex-wife was designated as the executor. Other info: My wife's father lived and died it Tennessee. My wife and I currently live in Florida. Not sure if that matters. My wife was legally adopted by her father, and the other two sisters (one older, and one younger) are blood kin to the father. What are my wife's rights, and options in this situation? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
  10. I was recently informed about a program being given to offenders as part of sentencing for drug offenders / addicts . The program is in Nashville Tn and the Judge over it is Honorable Norman out of Davidson County. Does anyone have information about this program? The rules , requirements and the impatient/out patient terms to be completed? I don't have access to actually Google or search it online , so if anyone has researched information or online information they can post here that would be great and very helpful. I would also like to know of anyone who may be personally aware of the program , by experience or by working / being a counselor within it. ( so please tell me about it!) Again , it is called DC4 , Judge Norman is over it in Davidson County / Nashville . Thank You!

  16. I have a friend who is going through pre trial phases and is trying to present the evidence of a falsified police report that resulted in him being charged. The situation is as follows.... He was invited into a home ,where he knew the residents, ultimately a po!ice report was made which listed items being stolen. However it is on video within the home that items that were taken was not listed and items that were shown taken was not on the report.... This is on camera however and the report and insurance clearly do not match up . The alleged victim has in fact falsified a police report to prevent from certain items being found stolen that were in his possession. Basically , we need to know if a police report is falsified and or misleading is it admissible in court and what should he do?
  17. I discovered that my ex signed up for a Credit Karma account in my name and SS#. They won't do anything about it without a copy of a police report (which I just got). I wasn't going to push it but for the 2nd sraight year, she has claimed both of her kids on her taxes (against the terms of our court ordered agreement), and she's pretty much a caricature of a bitchy ex-wife. She will probably lose her job as a Special Ed teacher because she used her work email address to register the account (possibly used work computer - find out when Credit Karma gives me details) which means she may have to payback a state grant that paid for her masters in SpEd. To my knowledge, she didn't open any credit accounts in my name, but per the deputy that took my complaint, the Credit Karma thing is prosecutable as Identy Theft - a Class D felony. My question is, since I had no monetary loss, can I sue her? Not that she has much to give up, but I'm done putting up with her crap. Or better yet, can I sue her and the department of education since she used their email system to setup the account and possibly their computer(s)/network to access the site? Per their terms of use for Department email, I can see no reason they should or would allow correspondence to or from Credit Karma. Before I get called out, I have my kids 50% of the time, pay my child support, and don't have any interest in her life. She dogs me to my kids, has admitted to making efforts to harm my reputation/character/income (I'm a Realtor), and I have put up with years of harrassment from both her and her husband. Thanks.

  21. My Son was born in 2014 with a severe heart defect.. so severe he is now almost 3 and has had five open heart surgeries. just to give you an idea of what his life has looked like he did not even leave the hospital for the first four months of his life. I stayed with him the full four months in the hospital and worked very hard to get him healthy and ready to come home. Once we got him home we were home about a month and then his doctors appointments got farther and farther apart and I was ready to move back to my hometown with my new baby. I live in the state of Michigan my whole life and came to Tennessee to visit my great-grandmother when I found out there that I was going to have a severe heart defect baby. So I stayed put until after he was good enough to travel. Once I left on my trip to Michigan the great grandmother called the police and said that I had not brought any of his medical Necessities such as oxygen or food or bags to feed him through his Mickey button.. which at the time I had Pit Stop at my babys father's families address and of course had all of my child's necessities. Either way a warrant was put out for my arrest for child endangerment I ended up going to the police myself and showing them that my child was fine where they then took me to jail and my son from me and my great-grandmother has had him ever since. Through the course of so many attorneys and court dates accross state I have really run out of things to do to get my child back and this is only 1/4 of the story it has really been a crazy trauma for me and I'm asking for help from anybody. As I said this is been going on since he's been born and he will be 3 in May. She has the advantage of knowing the judges of this small town in Tennessee as her family has went to school with them to give you an idea of what I am up against. I have asked other attorneys here in Michigan about the case and have been told by everyone that it is crazy that she still has him !! there has been no real proof of anything she has claimed about me yet I keep loosing cases..??!?! She has had temporary custody for the last three years and now wants to take me to court in April to file for adoption which I am going to say of course no and I don't know where things are going to go from here ..I feel a few more years of wasted expenses and I will never win..
  22. I live in a subdivision in a fairly rural area. There is a single provider of phone and internet. I'm being told that they are not able to provide service because of a capacity issue. Is there some legal requirement that they provide utilities to me? For example phone for 911 service? Just wondering.
  23. Hi , I have a question about the laws in the State of Tennessee about reclaiming Property Land and the Statues of Limitations TO CLAIM Property .I sold property to My sister in 1997 .She became ill and unable to work a short time afterwards I choose to let her keep the Deed and I put a Deed of trust in the Sullivan County Court House that was drawn up by My Lawyer at that time that state that the payments were to be paid in a 10 year time limit and if for any reason it wasn't I could then reclaim my land She and I worked out an agreement that because she was sick and had no place to go that as long as she paid the land Taxes each year and took care of this property then she could live there until she got better and could refinance it . I have heard to different answers to my question . My sister didn't pay me for my Property and she died in 2015 .At this point her only son now says that it is his and we both have lawyers, the property should have been paid for in 2008 and the his lawyer says that I should have made a claim to reclaim during this 10 years that it would have been paid but because she was my sister I didn't force this because I never signed the deed of trust over to her that states my rights to my property . Another Lawyer said that I had from 2008 until 2018 to claim my property before the Statue of Limitations ran out and at that point I would loose my rights to my property. Can any one tell me which answer is right because we didn't 'put a time limit on paper except for the repayment in 10 years. I have been trying for 2 years to get my Land back but because he is the only child he went to court to be over her estate and is Taking me to court because of this Statue of Limitations . Please help me if you can! Thank you for your time B6Carrof9
  24. I worked for a company as a commissioned employee. I receive a draw for my weekly pay and receive a monthly commission check after draws are pulled from it. I have a set schedule given each day with servies to complete at certain time blocks. If I am unable to complete a job due to the customer not being prepared or unable to have the service done we are told to call our office and have the service reset, which includes my company charging the customer a $25.00 trip charge for being unprepared for the service without notifying us prior to having it scheduled. Every other employee including myself have not seen a single bit of the money from these trip charges which I feel as if we should be entitled to due to that being set on our schedule, potentially taking up valuable time that we could have been doing services elsewhere. Depending on the day and the route you have these resets can happen quite frequently and limit the amount of money the employees can make. So should the employees be entitled to the 30% of these trip charges just as if it was the service itself?
  25. In 2014, I made an on-line purchase of software. It was last year's version and I purchased it through an on-line retailer. I have the receipt and paid about 1/3 of the new price for the software. As it turns out, the retailer that I purchased from was not authorized to sell it. Over a year after the purchase, I was contact by an attorney accusing me of copyright infringement. Basically, they say that I purchased stolen software. I have offered to return the software. Have made no money from its use. Indeed, I have only used it 2 or 3 times and only minimal applications, at that. Now they want me to pay full price for the product and are refusing my offer to return it to them. What are my options?
