Summary

Robert Weed is one of Northern Virginia’s most experienced personal bankruptcy lawyers. During the debate in Congress on the 2005 bankruptcy reform, Robert Weed was interviewed on local and national TV and quoted in newspapers across the country. His blog on bankruptcy issues is read by more than five hundred people around the country, every day! It was recently described by a happy former client as “a Library of Congress of bankruptcy information.” Robert Weed was named bankruptcy lawyer of the month by the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys for April, 2006. NACBA previously presented him with its Distinguished Service Award in May, 2003. He is also member of the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Northern Virginia Bankruptcy Bar Association.

He’s rated 10.00 by Avvo, where he is also a level twelve contributor. More than five hundred clients have rated him five stars for quality and service at Customer Lobby.

Legal Answers
47 Questions Answered

Q. Can i file for banckruptcy while i am in the philippines?
A: After you send the papers to the court, you are required about a month later, to show up in person to answer questions. Usually you can get permission for a call in if you are on assignment for the US Government; other approval is tough. When are you planning to be back?
Q. If my car loan was never reaffirmed and it shows closed VIA chapter 7 from 2 years ago, can I legally hand over the key
A: If you are sure you never reaffirmed the car--and haven't refinanced it since--then yes, you can turn over the key, not owe any money and not ding your credit.
Q. I have a judgement from July 2011 and was granted a discharge in December 2011. How do I get the judgement off my file?
A: Sorry I don't know if the problem is that the judgment shows on your credit report, or that the judgment is attached to real estate you owned in July 2011 that you still own.
Q. If I've been sent a foreclosure notice, can I file and stay in the house?
A: At least for a few months. More depending on the details of your situation and how your bankrutpcy is set up.
Q. I hit a parked car while uninsured can the debt I owe for the property damage be included/dismissed if I file chapter 7?
A: Yes, as long as you weren't charged with DWI.
Q. I have been issued a warrant of debt from Velocity Investments regarding a 5 yr old debt that was written off
A: You NEED to show up in court, ask for a trial, ask for a Bill of Particulars and tell the judge your defense is statute of limitations. That will get you a couple of months to prepare a defense, and if needed line up a lawyer.
Q. My car was repossed
A: If you never received the 10 day notice letter, then WHAT was drafted on 6/29 and received on 7/6. I'm missing step I need to answer your question.
Q. What is the statute of limitations in Virginia for credit card debt? It is 6/23/2018 and these debts date back to 2011.
A: Probably five years. Remember that statute of limitations is an affirmative defense; if you are being sued on a credit card you need to go to court and claim the statute of limitations.
Q. I received a warrant-in-debt and I don't know what to do?
A: The reason bankruptcy is in the law is NOT really so donald Trump could keep his casinos. It's so you can clear these debts and get back to good credit and get on with your life. You need to talk to a bankrutpcy lawyer.
