Legal Answers
824 Questions Answered

Q. Can someone please explain the legality of assigning contracts for a fee without a real estate and/or brokers license?
A: Please explain what you mean by assigning contracts. Give an example.
Q. Can my ex ask to increase the amount I pay in child support because after I went through bankruptcy I have less debt?
A: How old is the child support order anyway. That's because for a long time the court order has said so much for both and not so much each. If that is the case, your child support doesn't automatically drop. Also, now there are new guidelines to calculate child support. The guidelines rely on income of the two parents.
Q. My daughter has been living with me for the past 10 months. Just today her mother called the cops and me and took her
A: That's the problem with not doing it properly. The court orders don't change by themselves. Since you had her for 10 months, you should petition for a change of parenting plan giving you more time and decision making.
Q. even though I don't want to do this, how would I go about giving up my rights and not have to pay child support.
A: You can't force her husband to adopt. So, you are stuck. But, you can assert your rights to be more involved with your child. If you stay with it, you will get a court hearing.
Q. What If I receive my inheritance before filing for bankruptcy, can I send a part of it to someone I'm owing some money.
A: If you transfer assets prior to filing bankruptcy, the trustee can get them back. This includes repaying debts over and above normal.
Q. Spouse is not paying court assigned maintenance. In Illinois, what is law regarding missed payments?
A: You can take him to court for contempt (rule to show cause).
Q. Can I still use my inheritance for personal need after filing for bankruptcy in the USA
A: This is a complicated question which turns on how, what and when you received or will receive your inheritance. Need more information to answer your question.
Q. Filed ch 7 in 2009, currently in ch 13 want to convert to 7 but read that if i convert it wont be dischargeable?
A: A new Chapter 7 can be filed 8 years after the filing date of the previous one. If you file a Chapter 13 within the 8 years and convert to Chapter 7, the date of filing does not change. No Chapter 7 Discharge. If it was different, then a person could file a 13 and convert to 7 right after getting a discharge on the first 7. As far as dismissing the 13 and then filing a 7, there are certain waiting periods. Consult a bankruptcy attorney.
Q. Can both parent sgo in an agreed amount to be paid on child support to court???
A: Usually the court approves the agreement of the parties unless it is one-sided.
