Legal Answers

Q. Can a collection agency garnish my bank account , strictly social security benefits ?
A: No. But you have to take certain steps like filing a right of exemption and notify the collectors attorney that the funds are social security only.
Q. HOA is trying to foreclose on my home and has been avoiding my house because of non payment what are my options
A: HOA is within their right to foreclose. The only way to avoid foreclosure is to bring the account current all at once or file a chapter 13 bankruptcy to enter a payment plan to catch up. You will need to have a consultation with an attorney. (Note: withholding HOA payment is not the proper remedy for issues with the HOA)
Q. How can I legally get my car from my sister in another state?
