  1. Still did not file BK. Final outcome? It's over for me. (unless I don't understand this again but I have a pretty good idea I do) The hardest part is trying to figure out what's true and what is opinion. After wading through the court on my 4 or 7 cases, I don't remember due to a sort of stress management technique that involved some medication I was using a little too much, acting as my own attorney and meetings and discovery and sheriffs and all that **** and it is **** believe me. I have 2 judgement against me, one for 1200 and one for 14k. If I had been a little more on the ball, I
  2. You know I was thinking the other night most of the debt I accumulated was from one bad business decision rather than a lifestyle above my means or being stupid with credit. That being said it all happened in 05. So I looked up to SOL for my state and guess what? Most of the 175k or so left on my credit report is out of SOL or going out soon. So, why should I file for BK? They want to put me in a 13, with a payment plan which unless i'm mistaken will cost me and put my credit in the toilet for another 7 years. No one is after me right now, I have 2 judgments, 1 for 14k and 1 for 1400. I
  3. So, I skipped my court appointment again and viola, no one bothered to contact me. Why? Because it's all about money. If the scum bag debt collector thought he could recover (more likely double) his money meaning the 500 bucks he'd have to pay the sheriff barney fife to pick me up, sure, you bet they'd take me out of here in handcuffs. But since barney fife is not really the law and its not really an arrest warrant and its not a criminal court and the fake lawyers that show up at the fony court are the on the lowest rung of their profession and they are not very likely to get any ROI in my c
  4. I walked out of that courthouse yesterday and all they did was drop off another summons. They didn't even knock.
  5. I was right, God I'm USELESS in the morning. The date was actually next Thursday. All they do is drop off those papers.
  6. I want to add a PS to this thread so maybe someone can get something out of my experience. I got a bankruptcy attorney I really like and I wish I had done so 7 years ago. The time aggravation and money I spent doing this were not worth it considering I could have just paid the 2k and forgotten the whole thing. He talked to me quite a bit b4 I even paid him and gave me a bunch of good advice. I was really worried when I got the execution, but I was worried for nothing. No one ever came here looking for me. I even parked my truck a block over for awhile because i thought a sherriff would com
  7. I've met with one BR attorney and spoke with another and have an appointment. Both said "no such thing as SOL on these debts, never heard of it) I have read over and over re SOL on debt on this forum, whats up with that? FattyZ
  8. I made a few phone calls. We have no real property The bank accounts revolve and are only used for cash in, cash out. The car is the only thing I really have that I'm concerned about and the inconvenience. Given this, which I told them from the beginning, perhaps they have to wait to do their own due diligence before accepting a reasonable settlement, which right now, they will not. I found the car and bank accounts (no real property being in our possession) are the only things at risk. According to my sources, if the car is not in the driveway, and they can not locate it easily, they'll pr
  9. It's complicated and I do not know the law re bankruptcy. I am going to contact them today and try to arrange a settlement or payoff. I had to wait one more day. The car is as hidden as I can get it. Anything else, how can they take things without proving they belong to me, and how can they do that? Won't I have to fill out a financial disclosure? FattyZ
  10. thanks for the great info. Yes, the car is my biggest concern, we have no house and any liquid assets were transferred years ago. The bankruptcy is a real possibility because I hope to have some kind of assets sometime, and as you know, the judgment will never go away. I don't know however where exactly we stand in terms of filing and I will have to see probably three attorneys for free consults because I don't know or trust any of them, nor am I convinced bankruptcy is a be all end all solution. There are also more than one or two more of these floating around out there. I don't want to co
  11. Thanks I have a guy calling them with me tomorrow. He's like a professional negotiator and although we don't have much leverage, if anyone can get them to settle, this guy can. I'll post my results. (in the meantime the thing i'm most worried about is my car, and I know there are limitations on taking it but, the execution is pretty drastic. It basically says take anything. I'm sure they'd rather have cash but everyone is pretty desperate right now. PS anyone know the Ma laws about repo of cars and so on, and if your spouse has assets in her name alone are they subject? Thanks again Fatt
  12. Hi a debt collector has a judgment against me and the dishonorable judge so and so gave them an execution which I got in the mail today. I called the court and asked if I was entitled to a hearing as to my ability to repay. She said no, you have to call them and now they have that execution they can basically do anything they want to you. I assume the worst, car repo, bank account seizure, wage garnishments and they'll probably get an arrest warrant pretty soon. (all assuming I don't respond) Of course I'll respond, but they have no reason to negotiate with me now. We are getting our stuff t
  13. Yes, I have really put it off but now will most likely do it. I have been living without credit for about 5-6 years and though I lost a chance to interview for a job, it's really not that bad. We use bank cards or charge up credit cards and we rented a great house. The landlords took a chance on us but now they know us and asked us to stay greatly reducing the rent to keep us. (bad credit is not a sure sign your bad people) FattyZ
  14. Actually my record is pretty good, My first case, small claims against discover I lost since the lawyer "saw me coming" and had me sign a judgment which i did owing to not knowing what it was at the time. That case is still on payment review, so I have to show up at court once every six months and say I can't pay. It's a pain since I missed once and could have gotten arrested if I had not closely watched the mail, they almost issued a warrant for me. I settled 2 cases with Discover for 50% on each, they were the OC in both cases and they took the money and left out the debt collector who had
  15. It was a trial and the judge entered a judgment against me. Not only that but he is already sick of my act since this is the fourth time i have appeared before him in one of these things and he more or less advised me off the cuff that my real option for getting rid of all this is bankruptcy. Any further actions against me are only going to put me in front of him again and I am afraid the precedent has probably been set in this case. I have been advised like everyone else that bankruptcy is the final alternative and it has consequences that can be less than desirable. I can't see at this po
