Q. exact rolls of what makes limited Partership agreement valued in state of Ok. can final judgment be inforce in jordan
A: I cannot answer your question about the basis for the default because I can't examine the court file. Default judgments are taken without the knowledge of the defendant (you), hence the term. There is no treaty between the U. S. and the Kingdom of Jordan for the recognition of judgments; however, an Oklahoma judgment (state or federal) can be lodged in your country by following the local procedure in local courts in Jordan. I strongly suggest you seek counsel from a lawyer in Jordan to defend the action to "domesticate" the judgment. An alternative is to hire an Oklahoma lawyer to seek to have the judgment set aside because of lack of notice, but when you do that you may find that you have submitted to the jurisdiction of the Oklahoma court.
Q. I've been n bankruptcy for 4 yrs an I'm still behind n my mortgage payments 33,090.- should I reapply for bankruptcy
A: I think you should consult your bankruptcy lawyer for an analysis. It looks bad, but there is always some soluation. It appears that you should have been involved in a mortgage alteration plan dddd
Q. I have a pet worth about 800 and a wedding ring worth about 2000 can these be protected in chapter 7 bankruptcy in GA?
A: The best person to assist you in this matter is your own lawyer; that having been said, valuation in Bankruptcy is not the replacement costs but more likely the depreciated costs. Accordingly, is a "used" pet worth $800, or something less (don't be romantic about this), and is a used wedding ring worth $2000 (what would a pawn shop give you for it?)? I don't do bankruptcy in Georgia, but a choice is made between the federal exemptions and the state exemptions. I practice in Florida and Texas, and their state exemptions are quite generous. Good Luck d
