Legal Answers
Q. How long does it take for everything to disappear after filling bankruptcy ?
A: Generally it stays on your credit report for 10 years from the date of discharge. However, you will begin receiving solicitations for credit cards, "You have been pre-approved" soon after your case closes. If, as you should, refrain from getting any credit cards, and save some money, you will be eligible to qualify for a mortgage with most companies about 2 years after discharge.
Q. Question about 5-101 Maryland. Where does the 3 year date start? It says from the date it accrues?
A: The beginning of the measuring period is the date you knew, or should have known, of the wrong. It is generally 36 months for contracts and civil lawsuits. There are exceptions: in some cases measuring years are shorter (one year for assault and battery) and longer (12 years) for contracts under seal; until age 34 for sexual abuse; and other exceptions as well. The issue is fact-specific. Terry Nolan 410-242-9177
Q. Is showing display ads at the polling centers on election day legal in PG county MD or the state of Maryland?
A: Generally, you can display whatever you have on election day, provided that you remain outside of the boundaries (50 feet? It is marked by the election Judges).
