At this stage of the game, Bankruptcy or PAYOFF are about your only choices. OR work for CASH for a LONG time. MERRY CHRISTMAS Pay me now or pay me later. Regardless if the repossession was voluntary or involuntary, if there was a deficiency after the vehicle was sold you and any co-makers are responsible for payment. Most lenders are willing to accept payments as deficiencies are hard to collect. BEST OPTION for those considering vol repo... Sell the car and try to get the lender to carry any balance. This leaves the lender in a better position. In the end though YOU WILL PAY... through higher interest rates ( if you can get a loan now ), having to save money to replace your transportation, garnishment, bank levy, etc. Some will still go BR as a last resort. Good luck -

Attorneys hope to uncover prejudices, biases or conflicts of interest that may prevent a juror from honestly and impartially judge the facts of the case.

You should refer to the judgement against you to determine what the Judge determined regarding interest. In terms of your garnishment, this is the only document that matters. If you feel you have been garnished too much you should contact an attorney.

The contract called for interest as long as you had the car. IF they get a judgment for the balance owed on the contract, it will call for interest until it is paid. READ your paperwork.

Unfortunately for the consumer Louisiana is considered to be a "creditor friendly" state. Garnishment is allowed and the federal guidelines are used. The amount of garnishment usually granted is the maximum of 25% of disposable income with the first $154.50 being exempt from attachment. The garnishment order is effective immediately upon service, the employer must withold the amount weekly and submit it monthly to the court. A garnishment order remains in effect until the entire balance, court costs, legal fees and interest is paid in full.

No, everything in the court system takes steps. First, a petition is filed, both attorneys are notified. A hearing is set. Both attorneys argue their clients best interest and the judge makes a final decision based on the facts.

People with a special interest are more likely to respond, so the sample is likely to be biased.

The "penalty" is a repo on your CR.,higher interest rates on future loans, and a possible judgement/wage garnishment against you. A repo is a repo is a repo in credit files.

Attorneys act as advisors and spokesmen for their clients, when they're acting as attorneys. They don't act idependently of their clients, so it is up to the client to decide for himself if he is making the "right" decision. An attorney will only advise. That's not a decision. Most attorneys act in their client's best interest, to not do so is malpractice. And they wouldn't do very well professionally if they gave bad advice.

Yes, but most attorneys will not sign off on it, because it is almost never in the debtor's best interest in reaffirming a mortgage.

User Avatar

If the original creditor charged interest then the collection agency will continue to accrue interest at either your states legal rate or whatever you agreed to in the original contract until the debt is either paid or sold to another collection agency or placed with an attorneys firm for legal litigation.

User Avatar

Yes, but it might have to be a place that carries their own paper-which means more interest if no one else will do it. It also depends on circumstances. (Was it voluntary)

It is difficult to get a free attorney that is reliable and interested in their clients best interest. The only time a person will receive a free court appointed attorney is when involved in a criminal case.

Good morning, Long story short: - In court ordered mediation (5/2012) agreed to settlement of $1724 less than originally owed ($5434, 6/2011) and not to file a judgement if defendant agreed to make timely monthly installments of $300/month - $250 paid 6/29/12 - $500 paid 9/27/12 after meeting again (independently of the courts) and agreeing to start anew if timely payments were made from then on - filed a judgment in February 2013 after making several contact attempts and receiving no money since 9/27/12 - 6/20/13 I learned defendant now has a full time staff position with an agency (we are both freelance independent contractors working for at least 12 - 15 different agencies so garnishment was not really possible until now.) Question regarding interest on the Writ of Garnishment. - is 90% illegal? My originally agreed upon contract states that a 5% penalty will be added every 15 days that full payment is not received. No money in 9 months at about 10%/month cumulative = $2664. That comes out to about 90% but the form does not allow for monthly cumulative interest. instead it's written as: "______ Plus post-judgment interest, on $___ , at ___%, for period from ____, to ____, ___Year ? - How much can I put down as interest payment? There is a 2nd line "Plus additional post-judgment interest" ? - How much can I add here? ? - How can I now recoup the $1724 lost in settlement plus the $2960 left unpaid from the settlement through this garnishment procedure? I want the garnishment total to equal $4684 from period of 9/27/12 to 6/27/13 I'm going this morning to file the Writ of Garnishment myself. Thanks you in advance for your help!

If the defendant does not respond to a summons, the plaintiff will usually win the case by default. A judgment will be awarded, a judgment can then be executed pursuant to state law, one option is wage garnishment. The defendant/debtor does not have to attend court. If he/she wants to protect property or perhaps have a chance to appeal the ruling, it would be in their best interest to make an appearance or retain legal counsel.

In most instances and U.S. states judgment creditors are allowed to charge interest on valid judgments including those executed as wage garnishments. The interested party needs to check the laws of his or her state concerning such fees, as the percentage of interest and the application of same vary.
