13 Questions Answered

Q. The judge ordered me to pay sanctions. My financial situation has changed bc of COVID. What can I do?
A: It sounds like you are being sued and within that lawsuit something happened that caused the court to issue sanctions against you. Since you are having financial issues, I highly recommend you speak to a bankruptcy attorney.
Q. i HAVE AN EVICTION CASE HEAD TO TRIAL. IF I FILE BANKRUPTCY WILL THE CASE CONTINUE TO TRIAL AFTER THE STAY IS LIFTED
A: if the eviction case is against you, a bankruptcy filing will stay (i.e. delay), not stop, the eviction. The landlord can either obtain relief from stay to proceed with the eviction or can wait until the bankruptcy is completed to proceed. You will need to talk to an attorney to make sure you do not commit bankruptcy fraud.
Q. How long does a conservator have to transfer the estate to the executor in California after the conservatee has died?
A: you need to talk to a probate attorney specifically. if your father only had a will and not an estate plan with a living trust then you will need to open probate to administer his estate and transfer assets.
