如果您有任何即将到来的开庭日期的正在进行的法院案件,该开庭日期将自动推迟,直到法院重新开放以审理消费者债务案。您将通过明信片收到有关新日期的通知,该明信片将来自法院。请确保打开您的邮件以检查新的开庭日期。

您还可以检查eCourts系统,这是纽约州在纽约提交的许多案件的在线数据库。您可以在这里访问。如eCourts网站上所述,该信息可能不会使用最新信息进行更新。

新案件

  • New court cases are being filed in the NYC Civil Courts.
  • 也有可能在法院关闭之前提起诉讼,而您刚刚收到有关提起诉讼的通知。
  • If you have been sued you need to file an answer within 20 days, if the papers were given to you personally. If you received the papers any other way you have 30 days to answer. Nevertheless, even if you missed these deadlines you should still try to file your answer as soon as possible because the court will most likely accept the late answer. If you do not answer at all, you could suffer a default judgment.
  • To file your answer you can go to court to file your answer or submit your answer by mail. If by mail, you can fill out an answer form and mail a copy of the answer to the attorney for the Plaintiff AND the court. For consumer credit actions, you can use this  form to fill out your answer.

如果您对填写答案有疑问,请联系NYLAG(请参阅以下信息)。

What to Do If You Just Learned about a Default Judgment

Many people first learn about a lawsuit against them when a judgment is enforced (action is taken to collect money allegedly owed) or after they receive a debt collection letter from the judgment creditor asking for payment. Judgment creditors most often enforce judgments by freezing your bank account or by hiring a Marshal to send a request to your employer to garnish (or take money from) your wages.

If you discover that you have a default judgment you can go to the court to file a request that the court vacates (get rid of) the judgment against you. This request is called an “Order to Show Cause to Vacate a Default Judgment.”

谁有资格?

  • Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for 2019 will automatically receive an economic impact payment of up to $600 for individuals or $1,200 for married couples and up to $600 for each qualifying child 17 years old and under.
  • 调整后的个人总收入不超过$75,000,已婚夫妇提交联合申报表的不超过$150,000的纳税人将获得全额付款。
  • For filers with income above those amounts, the payment amount is reduced by $5 for each $100 above the $75,000 for single filers, $150,000 thresholds for joint filers, and $112.500 for those who filed as head of household.
  • Single filers with income exceeding $87,000 and $174,000 for joint filers with no children are not eligible.
  • Payments will now go automatically to individuals who receive Veterans pension of disability compensation and Social Security benefits.

Do immigrants or mixed-status households qualify?

  • Undocumented immigrants unfortunately are not eligible but their spouses and children are eligible as long as they have Social Security numbers.
  • Mixed-status households with undocumented family members will now receive stimulus checks that they were denied under the first round of legislation
    • Additionally, this new bill also retroactively makes mixed-status families with one Social Security number-holder eligible for the $1,200 per household and $500 per child checks allocated by the CARES Act, which was enacted in late March.

我什么时候可以看到付款?

  • The vast majority of people do not need to take any action. The IRS will calculate and automatically send the economic impact payment to those eligible within several weeks of the bill being signed.
  • If the IRS does not have your direct deposit information, there will likely be an opportunity to use the  web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail. 在这里查看更多信息.

这项刺激性付款是否会影响我获得公共援助,医疗补助,SNAP或第8节津贴(或其他)的资格?

*These answers are based on the previous stimulus payment info

  • 医疗补助。该付款不算作医疗补助的“收入”。如果您的年龄在65岁以上,是盲人或残障人士,则在您收到该信息后的12个月内,该信息也不会被视为“资源”。换句话说,它不会影响您的医疗补助资格。
  • SSI和SSD。SSI不会将经济影响付款视为SSI接收者的收入,并且在12个月内将这些付款从资源中排除。
  • 公共援助。就公共援助而言,刺激付款不算作收入。收款不受一次性规定的约束。付款将在收到的月份和之后的两个月中作为资源排除在外。之后的所有剩余资金将被视为非豁免资源
  • SNAP(食品券)。就SNAP而言,刺激付款不算作收入。在收到的月份和之后的一个月内,它们是免税资源。之后的所有剩余资金将被视为非豁免资源。
  • VA好处。就VA目的而言,经济影响付款不算作收入或资产。请务必在收到支票后的12个月内用完支票,因为剩余的刺激性资金将被视为资产。
  • 第8节. Because the stimulus payment is not income, it should not affect someone’s Section 8 share.

其他重要信息:

  • 预计这笔付款将计为预付款退税,并且不计入收益或资源用途的应享权利中。
  • 任何纽约州的银行,债权人或收债员都不能在纽约州将您的刺激付款扣押。 
  • 该付款不算作医疗补助的“收入”。如果您的年龄在65岁以上,是盲人或残障人士,则在您收到该信息后的12个月内,该信息也不会被视为“资源”。换句话说,它不会影响您的医疗补助资格。

Paid Sick Leave and Family Leave

  • The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) required that employers with fewer than 500 employees provide sick and family leave benefits for certain COVID-19 related reasons.

  • It provided up to 12 weeks of paid leave for employees whose children’s schools have closed or whose childcare providers are unavailable due to the coronavirus pandemic.

  • In addition, the FFCRA provided up to 2 weeks of paid sick time for those who have been advised by a medical provider to self-isolate due to coronavirus concerns.

  • **Unfortunately, the FFCRA expired on December 31, 2020 and was not renewed by Congress in its most recent pandemic relief package. That means that employers will not be required to provide paid leave under the FRCRA after December 31, 2020. However, some employers may voluntarily choose to continue to provide FFCRA benefits, because covered employers are eligible for tax credits through March 31, 2021 if they continue to provide FFCRA leave. Employees who already took leave in 2020 will not necessarily be eligible for additional leave, even if their employer chooses to extend those benefits.

  • You can find more information about the FFCRA eligibility here: 员工情况说明书Fact Sheet for Employers,问题和解答.

  • New York State’s Emergency COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave Law grants a minimum of 5 days of paid quarantine if your employer has 10 or more employees or over $1 million in annual income, and at least 14 days of paid quarantine for employers with 100+ employees. Note that an employee must be able to show that a public health official mandated that they quarantine. More information about this law is available 这里.

  • **As of January 1, 2021, New York State mandates paid sick leave, including for reasons unrelated to COVID. This law requires employers with five or more employees or net income of more than $1 million to provide paid sick leave, and to employers with fewer than five employees and net income of $1 million or less, to provide unpaid sick leave to employees. Covered employees in New York State began to accrue leave under this law at the rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked. More information about this new paid sick leave law is available 这里.

  • Aside from the new state and federal emergency measures, employees may be eligible for additional leave under the pre-existing NYS Paid Family Leave Law and the NYC Earned Safe and Sick Time Act.

歧视与报复

  • 由于您的种族/民族,残障,国籍和其他“受保护的阶级”,禁止雇主骚扰,解雇或歧视您(例如,雇主不能仅仅因为您是亚洲人而强迫您进行自我检疫)。

  • It is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for requesting or asserting their rights under any of the above laws, including for reporting health/safety hazards.

NEW RULES IN NEW YORK FOR PARTIAL UNEMPLOYMENT IN EFFECT JANUARY 18, 2021 

Governor Cuomo announced on January 18, 2021 new measures for the eligibility and payment of partial unemployment benefits. Under this new system, unemployed New Yorkers can work up to seven days per week and still receive some unemployment benefits as long as they work fewer than 30 hours and earn no more than $504 in gross pay. 

The changes will go into effect for work done on or after Monday, January 18, 2021, which unemployed New Yorkers certify for starting on Sunday, January 24, 2021. 

The new method of calculating partial benefits is outlined below: 

  • New Yorkers who work between zero and four hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive their full unemployment benefit; 
  • New Yorkers who work between four and ten hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive 75 percent of their unemployment benefit; 
  • New Yorkers who work between ten and 20 hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive half of their unemployment benefit; 
  • New Yorkers who work between 20 and 30 hours in a week and earn no more than $504 will receive 25 percent of their unemployment benefit;
  • New Yorkers who work over 30 hours in a week, regardless of earnings, will not receive any of their unemployment benefit. 

New Yorkers will still be required to submit weekly certifications online or over the phone to receive their benefits each week. Claimants should know that, for the time being, they will still be asked how many “days” they worked in the previous week. Claimants should add up the total number of hours they worked in that previous week and use the following guidelines for reporting “days” worked:  

  • New Yorkers who work between zero and four hours in a week should report zero days worked 
  • New Yorkers who work between four and ten hours in a week should report one day worked 
  • New Yorkers who work between ten and 20 hours in a week should report two days worked 
  • New Yorkers who work between 20 and 30 hours in a week should report three days worked 
  • New Yorkers who work over 30 hours in a week should report four days worked 

More information on the DOL website, including a FAQ, is available 这里.

抵押救济

  • 联邦政府和纽约州都在为那些由于冠状病毒危机而无法偿还抵押贷款的借款人建立救济计划。借款人应联系其抵押贷款服务商讨论选择方案。

  • 借款人必须证明由于大流行而造成的直接经济损失,而借款人将最终确定借款人是否符合任何宽容或还款计划的条件。

  • 那些可以继续在财务上继续进行抵押付款的人应该这样做。

  • If you are experiencing a covid-19 related hardship you may request a temporary stay of the commencement of any foreclosure lawsuit by submitting a Hardship Declaration in Foreclosure Matters to your servicer asap. A copy of the required declaration can be found 这里.

止赎

  • On December 28, 2020, Governor Cuomo signed the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 and temporarily stayed all foreclosure cases for 60 (sixty) days.

  • If you are experiencing a covid-19 related hardship you may request a further stay of your foreclosure case by submitting a Hardship Declaration in Foreclosure Matters. The required declaration can be found 这里.

  • 尚待处理联邦法院案件的房主应尽快与法院联系,以了解案件情况。

If you would like assistance completing the hardship declaration or have specific questions about your foreclosure case, please call NYLAG at 212.946.0349 或电子邮件 [email protected] for a free consultation.

Evictions

  • Evictions and all eviction cases are stayed for 60 days as of December 28, 2020 (until February 26, 2021). This stay, which means nothing can happen or move forward in any eviction case in New York State, is part of the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act, which became law on December 28, 2020.
  • The purpose of the 60-day period is to give tenants who are experiencing financial hardship the chance to provide their landlord with a hardship declaration (English version | Spanish version).
  • . Once a tenant signs the hardship declaration and gives it to their landlord or the Housing Court, any existing eviction case is stayed until at least May 1, 2021. That means nothing can happen in the case until May 1, 2021 at the earliest. The hardship declaration is a form published by the state court system in which a tenant makes a sworn statement by checking a box on the form that they
      • have experienced a financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic
      • and/or if the tenant had to leave their home now, it would pose a significant health risk because the tenant or one or more  members  of the tenant’s household  have  an  increased  risk  for  severe  illness or death from COVID-19 due to being over the age of 65, having a disability, or having  an  underlying  medical condition.
    • If your landlord has not already sued you in Housing Court and you give your landlord the hardship declaration, the landlord can’t start any case in Housing Court until May 1, 2021 at the earliest.
  • landlord can still send rent demands.  Landlords can still send you letters and rent demands for any rent they claim you owe during this time.  However, those rent demands must now come with the hardship declaration. If you provide the hardship declaration to your landlord or the court, that will stop your landlord from starting its case in court until May 1, 2021 at the earliest.
  • 目前,您仍然有义务支付租金。 However, as a result of the Tenant Safe Harbor Act, which became law this summer, you cannot be evicted for any rent that became due after March 7, 2020, if you experienced financial hardship after March 7, 2020. But your landlord will still be able to sue you in Housing Court for unpaid rent and get a money judgment. Landlords won’t be able to evict you for post-March 7, 2020 rent that you owe until all parts of the state of emergency are lifted, which will likely not be for several months and possibly longer.
  • If you entered into an agreement in court prior to the moratorium that required you to pay rent by a certain date and you can no longer make that payment, your landlord cannot call the marshal/sheriff/law enforcement agency to evict you until February 25, 2021, and a status conference is held. That stay of eviction can be extended to May 1, 2021 if you give your landlord or the court the hardship declaration

 Other Housing Court Matters

  • 房屋法庭向住户开放提起诉讼 例如房东的非法停工,公寓维修以及处理严重维修命令的申请。您可以找到有关如何提交此类案件的更多信息。 这里.
  • 所有待解决的房屋法院案件仍被推迟。 不出现。新的出现日期将直接发送给您。
  • Landlords can file new cases. But when a landlord starts a new case, they must provide proof that they served you with the hardship declaration before they started the case. If you receive a hardship declaration from your landlord, sign it, and return it to your landlord (or the court), the landlord can’t start the case against you or move forward with a case until May 1, 2021 at the earliest.
  • There is a limited exception. Landlords can start new cases and not be stopped by the new law, but only if a tenant, “is persistently and unreasonably engaging in behavior that substantially infringes on the use and enjoyment of other tenants or occupants or causes a substantial safety hazard to others, provided.” The law also has a number of safeguards built in to prevent landlords from abusing this limited exception to do an end run around the law.
  • 如果您从房东,其律师或房屋法院收到任何法律文件,请不要忽略它。 请通过以下方式联系NYLAG的NY COVID-19法律资源热线 (929) 356-9582 要么 线上,或位于 (718) 557-1379[email protected],或访问他们的 网站.
  • 非法停工 如果您是纽约市的房客,则可以在急诊室提起诉讼,然后放回您的单位。法院和纽约市将所有驱逐后和非法停工案件移交给法律咨询权的法律服务组织,无论您身在何处或您的收入如何。
  • 当公寓有危险或非法时,仍会发出空缺命令,只有城市机构才能发出。 业主没有法律授权直接发出空置命令。在这次危机期间,我们希望撤消订单的情况很少,这是对真正危险情况的响应或火灾的结果。发出空置命令后,租户有权使用市政府机构提供的搬迁服务。在危机期间,搬迁服务保持开放。

NYCHA和第8节居民

  • 第8节代金券: 虽然HPD第8节客户服务办公室不对公众开放,但HPD第8节客户团队仍然对公众开放。由于收入下降而面临租金困难的凭单持有人应发送电子邮件 [email protected] 或传真至212-863-5299。
  • 在此期间,任何设置为过期的HPD第8节凭证都将自动更新。客户不需要联系HPD进行扩展。 
  • 在此过程中,所有补贴终止都将暂停,直到另行通知。所有租户会议和简报会均已推迟,将重新安排。所有上诉听证会均被取消,直至另行通知。 HPD将继续支付补贴,直到做出最终决定。
  • NYCHA减租:根据以下内容,家庭可能有资格获得NYCHA租金减免 租金困难。 NYCHA简化了其“租金困难政策”,以便在COVID-19危机期间更轻松地减少NYCHA的租金。
  • 如果某人的工作时间被削减或因工作而失业,NYCHA会通过临时重新认证接受申请。
  • 现在,家庭可以通过新的简化版提交收入变动临时重新认证 自助服务门户 interface
  • 没有等待期可以申请。
  • 在另行通知之前,NYCHA居民可以自行证明其收入损失。这意味着目前不需要通常需要提交临时重新认证的证明文件,例如工资单,雇主的来信和/或失业救济金的核实。
  • 现在,家庭可以通过电话联系客户联系中心(CCC)发出这些请求。 NYCHA CCC工作人员可以回答与针对COVID-19紧急状态而制定的“租金困难政策”相关的问题。住户可以打电话 718-707-7771 并选择选项5。

租金/紧急援助和持续的现金援助福利

  • New York State recently extended its rent relief program to help tenants who have lost income during the COVID-19 crisis. The NYS COVID Rent Relief Program, which is administered by the state agency called Homes and Community Renewal, HCR, will provide eligible households with a one-time rental subsidy that will be sent directly to the household’s landlord. Accepted applicants are not required to repay this assistance. Applications for the COVID Rent Relief Program reopened on December 18, 2020 and applications must be submitted online or by mail by February 1, 2021.

  • 纽约和联邦纳税申报的截止日期都已延长至2020年7月15日,星期三。
  • New York State Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits are available to workers who have lost work through no fault of their own, including for reasons related to the Coronavirus pandemic. These benefits are not available to workers who are employed and able to work remotely, or to those on paid leave.

  • 点击这里 for the current Department of Labor (DOL) instructions for filing an unemployment insurance claim online. Note that New York State is waiving the statutory 7-day waiting period to apply.

  • The federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act significantly expanded on the protections of the NYS UI system, adding the following programs:

    • Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA): available to workers ineligible for traditional UI benefits, including independent contractors, self-employed workers, students, and those without sufficient work history to qualify for state UI benefits. PUA is available to those who have lost their jobs for reasons directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic and may be available to workers who are forced to quit their jobs due to the pandemic. However, it is not advisable to quit your job in order to receive unemployment insurance benefits.

    • Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUC): added a supplemental payment for $600 per week to claimants’ weekly UI earnings. That $600 payment expired in the last full week of July 2020 and was replaced with an additional $300 payment per week from December 28, 2020 through March 14, 2021.

    • Lost Wages Assistance (LWA): was a partial and temporary replacement for the $600 per week PUC payment. It paid eligible claimants a supplement of $300 per week, retroactive to August 1, 2020 through September 6, 2020. The LWA program ended with the December 27, 2020 new COVID-19 relief package.

    • Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC): originally this program added 13 weeks of benefits for individuals who had been on UI benefits but had exhausted their initial 26 weeks of state benefits. The original program expired on December 27, 2020 and has now been extended through March 14, 2021, and increased to provide a total of 24 weeks of additional benefits.

    • Extended Benefits (EB): EB added another 20 weeks to a claimant’s individual eligibility, effective May 3, 2020, on top of the initial 13 weeks of PEUC that were added to a claimant’s initial 26 weeks of UI benefits. This brought the total duration of UI benefits to 59 weeks. EB was not extended by Congress in the COVID-19 relief package.

    • Updated information from the NY DOL about claimants’ eligibility under the above programs is available 这里.

    • 移民仅在可以提供有效社会安全号码或工作授权的UI下才有资格。

    • Claimants who are denied benefits are entitled to ask for a hearing. You will know you were denied benefits if you receive a Notice of Determination, explaining the reasons for your denial. More information about the hearing process is available 这里.

    • The DOL recently established a process for requesting a waiver to forgive overpayments of federal unemployment insurance, i.e., benefits that were paid to claimants who were later found not to be eligible. A claimant who received an overpayment of benefits may apply for a waiver if the claimant was not at fault for the overpayment, and if the claimant can show that recovery of the overpayment would be “contrary to equity and good conscious.” More information about this process is available 这里.
