My sister is getting a divorce from her husband. She left with the kids because he was being abusive. She got a restraining order on him and filed phone harassment charges against him. She also went to court and the gave her a protection order for 180 days. That night he broke into the house where she was staying, beat her and pulled a knife on her and told her he was going to kill her and their kids. She got him to leave and called the police. He was not arrested until 2 days later after we called a billion times. Her lawyer was given to her by the womans shelter and a rock could represent her 1000 times better than he is. We live in West Virginia. Any ideas on laws to help her…??? We fear for her and the kids.

In June, I got involved with a debt settlement company that has caused me nothing but trouble. I got my money back from them, but my two bank of america accounts were sent to arbitration. I am having trouble getting a loan to pay off the accounts because of the 30 days past due notice on my credit report for those accounts. Even with a co-signer with perfect credit, we have ran into various problems, such as living in different cities. My parents said to contact a lawyer and they would be able to set up payments for me, but I am wondering what that will do to my credit.
The collection people said I still have a pretty good credit score, but I just want these past due balance notations to go away so my score will go back up. I have never made a late payment before.
