You're in debt and don't think you'll ever get out, maybe got some late payments, but are trying to work something out so you don't completely trash your credit. Discussion of Debt Management Programs, debt consolidation, settlement and consumer credit counseling programs.
My mother passed away nearly 2 years ago. She did not own anything in her name, and there was no money in savings (joint with my dad) at the time of her passing.... but they lived in Texas (a community property state) and the house is paid in full.
The house is solely in my dads name. That is the only property "they" owned.
Her medical bills were quite high and were were initially told they cannot do much as there wasn't an estate. Now tge bills are being addressed to my mothers estate via my dads name.
I know advice given here isn't legal.. But I would appreciate feedback from anyone who has been in this situation... Or advice that we should seek out an attorney.
Can they force a sale or attach to the house at all in a community property state such as Texas or is the house not touchable.
Hi everyone I’m new to this site! I have a question about an account I saw on my credit report - it’s an old car lease back in 2006 that’s been paid for years but upon reviewing my report it noticed that it still shows open! Should I contact Transunion and have them close it or should I just leave it - there are no late payments but it isn’t showing paid as agreed!
I started to fill in a cc application online and it asked my employment status with the choices of 1. Employed 2. Unemployed 3. Retired 4. Self Employed. I am on SSD so I have income for now. Is this considered unemployed and will that hurt my chances of being accepted?
