Legal Answers
19 Questions Answered

Q. I believe the statutes of limitations on delinquent credit card debt in Mississippi is 3yrs. When does that 3yrs, start
A: The statute of limitations starts on the date of last activity on your account. This could be the date you last made payment, but it could also be the date you last used the account, made a promise to pay, entered a payment agreement, or acknowledged liability for the debt.
Q. i recently got a garnishment notice from my employer but i never was served any court papers for the lawsuit
A: Yes, you could be charged for the creditor’s additional attorney fees if you are found to owe the debt.
Q. I have a public sale state tax lien on my record how long is the statue of limitation in the state of mississippi
A: "Depending upon tax type, the statute of limitations begins running when a tax return is filed, or on the due date of the return. The statute of limitations is typically 36 months from that date as specified in the various tax laws. If a tax return is filed prior to the due date of the return, then the return is considered to have been filed on the due date for purposes of the statute of limitations. If a return is not filed, the statute of limitations does not begin running until an assessment is made for that tax period. The statute of limitations can also be extended beyond the normal time frame if a false or fraudulent return is filed with intent to evade tax." https://www.dor.ms.gov/Pages/General-FAQs.aspx#343
Q. Have a loan through republic finance, hardship, unable to make payments, afraid of what they can do to me.
A: You should meet with a local bankruptcy attorney for a free consultation to discuss your options. There is no “minimum” amount of debt required to file.
Q. Must a KY will that leaves nothing to the children mention the children? If it doesn't is it contestable?
A: In most states, there are laws that say children who aren't mentioned in a will can petition for a portion of their parents’ estates to prevent accidental disinheritance. Because of these laws, a testator should specifically mention a child they want to disinherit.
Q. We wanted to leave our land and store to our grand-daughter, under the condition that it's not sold.
A: Yes, you can set up a trust to transfer the assets into with your desired stipulations.
Q. In Mississippi do wills need a notary as well as witnesses
A: The will does not have to be notarized, but you should have the witnesses sign a Self Proving Affidavit which does require a notary.
Q. Looking into buying a vehicle that was in bankruptcy.. owner has no title bankruptcy has been discharged..
A: The owner will need to contact the lender to see if the lender will release the title. The lender is not required to do so if their lien was never paid.
Q. If I filed an apartment under bankruptcy 5 years ago can I reapply at the same apartment?
A: Yes, you may reapply, but whether you are accepted will depend upon that company's policies.
