Legal Answers
Q. What bankruptcy laws are Available in Tennessee?
A: Mr. Denison is correct Bankruptcy is a federal statute enacted by the Congress of the United States. The only variables, as he says, are the exemptions (stuff you can keep), but you should consult your own lawyer to determine which choices are the best for you
Q. should i take care of irs debt before filing for bankruptcy?
A: You should go see a good bankruptcy lawyer because you sound like a candidate for relief. On a board like this individualized advice is impossible. When you go to the lawyer be prepared to complete a questionnaire that will list all your assets and all debts. Your best tax relief can come in your bankruptcy because it sounds as though Chapter 13 (which treats IRS debt) may be optimum for you. The best the tax relief outfit can probably do is arrange a payment plan, which can occur in bankruptcy. Good luck and go sooner rather than later! d
Q. What options are there for unreasonable neighbors outside of city limits?
A: Under the circumstances, you describe I would sell and move. You need direct advice from a tax guy, but you a reasonable period of time to reinvest to avoid capital gains. Do you have a county sheriff or local constable? If you are in the county there is some county-wide law enforcement body.
