Seminar coming for those working with homeless

A free law seminar for service providers working with members of the island’s homeless population is Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Child and Family Service office in the Lihue Plantation Building, organizers said in a press release.

Glenn Ramel, Legal Aid Society of Hawaii Consumer Unit staff attorney, presents an overview of consumer law as it affects homeless people.

Topics to be covered include changes in bankruptcy law, information on who can file for bankruptcy, effects of filing for bankruptcy, creditor issues like illegal contact from creditors and how to stop creditors from harassing, and judgment issues like what it means to have a judgment against you, and what it means to be “judgment-proof.”

To reserve a spot, call 245-4728.
