It can be done. Its called "§ 14-115. Secreting property to hinder enforcement of lien or security interest. Any person who, with intent to prevent or hinder the enforcement of a lien or security interest after a judgment or order has been issued for possession for that personal property subject to said lien or security interest, either refuses to surrender such personal property in his possession to a law enforcement officer, or removes, or exchanges, or secretes such personal property, shall be guilty of "" in NC. READ carefully..

I don't think that's right. I was threatened with some junk similar with my car lender when i was behind. I called my local police and asked them if what they were saying was correct. Turns out if I would have went to jail, I could have sued the car lender for doing that. The guy said the its their duty to get their car without frauding with the law.

Absolutely. That's the responsibility you took on as a co-signer: that you would assume payments in the event the primary could not make them. If that person is making payments mutually agreed to by him and his creditor, then they have no reason to coma after you. However, if because of the Chapter 13 he can't make payments, you become legally responsible for them.

Can a lien be place on your house if you continue to make small monthly payments on credit card debts?

A creditor does not legally have to accept any payment amount except that which is stated in the contract/lending agreement. Also when accepting a lesser payment the creditor is still not barred from using other methods including litigation to collect the debt. Evem of the debtor is making payments on the account the creditor can still file suit for the debt and if granted a judgment in most cases use it as a lien against the debtor's property. Because litigation is expensive and time consuming most creditors (not all) will try to work with the debtor. The debtor should contact the creditor to attempt to make other payment arrangements, not take it upon themselves to simply pay what they can afford.
