You need to get a copy that ALL TAXES have been paid from the IRS or if in Canada, Revenue Canada and take a copy of this document for the banking institution (but take in the original as well) to the banking institution and show them the proof. Sit there until they have completely absolved this mistake on your account.
You have 30 days to respond to a default judgment by going to the courthouse and filing an appeal. A new trial will be set where the judge will either give you another opportunity to hear your side or vacate the judgment if you can show that you were not properly served.
they are removed by the act of filing a satisfaction of judgment with the county clerks office
Yes. Follow the rules in your state for filing a judgment.
The judgment is not "removed" but the judgment creditor is barred by the discharge from collecting on the judgment. Filing a c. 7 will stay the collection, but if the case is dismissed before a discharge is granted, the judgment is enforceable. If the judgment involves intentional harm or drunk driving or certain other limited situations, the discharge does not prevent collection on the judgment.
A collection agency, or any party, can only freeze your bank account IF they have sued your first and won a judgment against you. If you file for bankruptcy, it will not immediately release the levy on the account. The court that rendered the judgment must be notified of the bankruptcy filing, as well as the judgment creditor. The account could remain frozen until the outcome of your bankruptcy. If your bankruptcy, and the judgment debt is discharged, then the bank account must be released. It is possible to release a levy before discharge, but it will usually require the bankruptcy attorney to do it.
unless the judgment is for damages from: intentional tort, fraud, drunk driving, spouse/child support, they yes your judgment will be discharged
Basically, a default judgment is something you did NOT argue about in court by filing answers to the Summons and Complaint, and the Summary Judgment is something you did argue about IN COURT.
A judgment creditor cannot levy on your 401(k), but they can levy on your bank account and money from a 401(k) distribution would be vulnerable if it was in your bank account at the time the levy occurred. Filing a homestead does not prohibit a judgment creditor from filing a lien against your home. The judgment creditor can wait for you to sell or refinance your home. If there is enough equity in your home to pay off the mortgage and your homestead, there might be enough equity to be able to force a sale of your home.
Checking accounts are levied by means of a court ordered judgment. Most bank account levies are good for a period of thirty days and then must be renewed through the court. In some states the levy depending upon what it is for can remain on the account until the amount of the judgment has been collected. The holder of the account cannot have the levy removed without filing a petition with the court where the creditor received the judgment. For the levy to be suspended or ceased the judgment debtor/account holder must present evidence for "just cause". Such evidence might be that the funds in the account are not subject to seizure because they are of exempt status, such as Social Security or public assistance benefits.
Yes. It is the most common reason for filing for bankruptcy. If the judgment creditor had an execution issued and attached any equity in your home, you may have a problem.
File a motion to vacate based on that fact. After the judgment is entered there is a SOL for filing that motion.
No, debts acquired after the filing cannot be included in the BK petition.
