Legal Answers
250 Questions Answered

Q. Filing bankrupty but on EX home deed.
A: If the property was awarded to your husband in the divorce decree then the decree should have been filed in the County Deed Records maintained by the County CLerk. This is not done automatically. You or someone would have needed to or still can file a certified copy of the divorce decree.
Q. I am thinking of filing for chapter 13 but I am behind on my mortgage and owe family some money, I want to cash out
A: Visit with a consumer bankruptcy attorney in your area.
Q. How do I find information an old bankruptcy case?
A: You should be able to access information through the "PACER" system or otherwise do a search on the internet.
Q. Can my father sign over the mortgage of the house we live in to my name?
A: Your father cannot assign a debt contract to another as he is solely responsible for paying that debt. Additionally, your father may only own a part of the house and not all 100% depending on many factors. You may want to go with your father to a divorce lawyer who can explain the process in detail.
Q. how do I go about getting my name off the loan deed off a house that me and ex own?
A: Either seek to enforce your divorce decree if applicable or perhaps, seek clarification on property and debts and/or possible modification (although doubt Court has jurisdiction). This really depends on what your divorce decree states. I suggest contacting your divorce lawyer for an explanation or taking your decree to another attorney for a consultation.
Q. Purchased a property that from husband who allegedly forged wife signature on warranty deed and transferred property.
A: Contact a real estate attorney in your area. They need to have the facts and then should be able to advise you of your options.
Q. My husbands ex wife initially got home in divorce, she is not on mortgage but did have to sign papers when they closed.
A: I would expect the real estate attorney obtained some type of deed. I suggest contacting them, looking through the real property records of the appropriate county as well.
Q. How do I apply for my child to become a legal citizen? I because a citizen after his birth in germany
A: Please clarify your question. You are not clear on where the child is living which parent is a citizen, etc.
Q. Hi, is it necessary to pay fees and fill out paperwork for finding your stolen dog at a shelter? Any advise will help.
A: Did your friend make a police report on the stolen dog? Perhaps, a valid police report will help him recover his dog or maybe the police can help; otherwise, yes they generally can require their procedures be adhered to.
