Legal Answers
89 Questions Answered
Q. What if I bought a phone with cash and the store employee pulls a debit card out of his pocket and pays with that?
A: I suggest you IMMEDIATELY return to the store and see the owner/manager to set this right. There are several explanations for this that come to my mind and none of them are on the up and up.
Q. on a credit card loan that one has defaulted on, when does the 4 year date start that you are no longer liable for the
A: In most cases, it will start on the date that you defaulted. However differing situations may affect the start date, such as if you make another payment, or if you have left the country.
Q. Is there a trust that can protect my asset (house) from bankruptcy?
A: You desperately need an in-person sit-down meeting with a bankruptcy expert. You have a lot going on. Maybe more than one meeting will be necessary. There already are certain protections built into the law that might prove to be sufficient to protect someone's home and other assets. But you must have personal advice to find out what these can do for you in your own specific case. Your contemplated fumbling around with transfers of real estate or other assets could cause a person to lose the privilege of having such protections. You are not going to solve your worries by asking for legal advice on public message boards.
