Legal Answers
327 Questions Answered

Q. Can a vet keep my dog legally bc I can't pay?
A: Check the Texas property statute for more specific information; however, generally speaking, vets do obtain an automatic lien on any services performed. You may be able to work out a payment plan with them.
Q. My nc biller charges me a %. I’m a dentist in Texas. Is this fee splitting? I just became aware of this term fs.
A: Check with your dental board as they should have an ethics section with someone who can answer this for you. For lawyers flee-splitting is constantly changing in definition, i.e. if we work through online company answering questions for money, etc. It seems the States are all taking different positions. I can tell you if it were me, I would check with my State Board first.
Q. I have a car in the shop before I filed bankruptcy chapter 13. I can't afford to get it out. Will they keep my car?
A: I would start with asking your bankruptcy attorney this question. Generally speaking, all assets are listed on a bankruptcy filing whether they are in running order or not. All creditors are named as well and it's likely this one should have been included. Again, please consult your bankruptcy attorney who will be able to answer your question with certainty.
Q. I obtained a Bachelors degree from ITT Technical Institute, at the time, I was told that it was accredited.
A: Please look at this link for more information relating to ITT - you may have to copy and paste as it doesn't show to be a hyperlink.
Q. If the deceased owner of 9 lands in Tx. passed without a will, how can the person entrusted with the land sell?
A: It sounds like you'll need a "Determination of Heirship" and "Administrator" appointed who can pay any debts and sell property if necessary, giving the remaining assets to the appropriate heirs. I'm going to move this over to probate as well.
Q. My father passed away 4 years ago and left his house to me and my kids. How can I put it under my name only?
A: This question requires more information, i.e. was there a will, was it probated, are the kids minors or adults, was property separate property or community owned property, etc. Please provide more details in order for someone to provide general information (remember this forum is for general information).
Q. I receive a letter that I owe money and they put a lean in my property I dont remember what was that it is from 2015
A: Speak with an attorney and show them the letter.
Q. I received a court summon in case of debt collection.Will there be bad remark on my credit on not appearing in court.
A: If you do not answer a collection suit, the collector may obtain a judgment which will have a negative impact on your credit.
Q. The woman buying my house called my mortgage company saying she was me to get a loan modification faster. Is that legal?
A: No.
