Legal Answers
906 Questions Answered

Q. Can I have my chapter 13 dismissal because of a missed tax form reinstated
A: "missed tax form reinstated" What do you mean.
Q. How can I get the SS to stop payment for child support being taken out. the child is over 18 years old
A: Somebody sent an order to Social Security to start taking it out. They have to notify them to stop. The paper you have may or may not be enough. You may need a court order to stop it.
Q. Hi I wanted to buy a vacant land on the corner of a residential block (residential lot). Can I rent it for parking space
A: If you are in a city, the city's zoning laws control land use. You need to go see the Zoning Office and find out what you can do with that lot. Sometimes you can apply for variances but that is another matter.
Q. I'm a beneficiary in a will that has been in Probate for almost 3 years now I live in Iowa but the case is in Illinois.
A: When someone opens an estate, they have deadlines. Within 60 days they have to file an inventory. Within 14 months they have to file an accounting. If you did not receive these, you should contact the court to find out what is going on. Even though you are a beneficiary, if there are not enough assets after payment of bills, there might not be anything left to distribute.
Q. Divorce/Child Support !read the more information!
A: He needs to take a look at his divorce judgment to see how much and how he is to pay the child support. If he was to pay it through the court and isn't doing it, he may be building up an arrearage. Child support and visitation are treated as two separate issues.
Q. My father died without a will. His wife is selling their home. Are his children entitled to any profit from the sale?
A: After an estate is opened, the Administrator has 60 days to file an inventory and send a copy to all the heirs. As an heir you would have received a copy. It looks like the house was in joint tenancy with the wife and when he died it went to her. You can get a copy of the inventory from the court.
Q. Can we obtain a modified order based on birth of new children?
A: As long as the court order says he is the father and is not changed, he has to pay child support for her. Use this Illinois child support estimator to see how much the child support could be:
Q. You: Hello. I filed for chapter 7 in March but filed my 2015,2016,2017 ammendment from IRS. What happens to the money..
A: The date you filed your bankruptcy is the magic date. You also claimed exemptions. If you didn't claim the tax refund as an exemption, it will have to be given to the Bankruptcy Trustee to pay your creditors.
Q. Personal Bankruptcy Question
A: What you did was give away an asset that belonged to you prior to filing bankruptcy. Giving away the house is no different than giving away money or stocks and bonds. The Trustee has a right to get that house back and sell it to pay the creditors. The Trustee won't have to do much of a search since you will tell him what you did when you fill out the forms.
