Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Can I claim federal exemptions in chapter 7 bankruptcy?
A: I would recommend getting an attorney to help you with your bankruptcy. There are many good lawyers in North Carolina. To answer your questions, though, Vermont exemptions would be applicable under 11 USC 522. My research shows that Vermont does allow nonresidents to use their exemptions but it also permits non residents to use federal exemptions. You will have the option to chose federal or Vermont exemptions. Once you are in NC for 2 years, though, you are required to use their exemptions.
Q. What is the Statute of limitations in a auto-loan delinquency. The account was originally listed as “ “ “ charge off “
A: Statutes of limitations vary by state. For example in Mississippi, the statute of limitations on an auto loan deficiency is only one year. Under Colorado Revised Statute 13-80-103.5, the statute of limitations is 6 years. This runs from the date of the last payment. The fact that it is reported as a "charge off" does not affect the limitations period or the ability of the creditor to collect. Neither does the fact that the car was voluntarily repossessed. Many lawyers offer free consultations. I recommend calling around for a local attorney for more information.
Q. I had a credit card judgement placed on me in 2012 for $3.666 and am on ssi, the debt collector placed a lien on my home
A: If they took a judgment against you, the judgment acts as a lien against your property. You will not be able to sell the home without paying the lien off. There is a small possibility that they could exercise a sheriff's sale of the property but in my experience, that is unlikely with homestead property. In Arkansas, judgments are good for 10 years unless renewed. Pay attention for any notices that you may get and once the ten years has run, you may need to reach out to a local attorney to ensure that the lien is gone. If they reenroll the judgment, it's going to stay there for another 10 years, though. You may want to speak with a local attorney for more options. Most offer free consultations.
