My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.
Was he declared bankrupt or was it a company that became insolvent?
Graham was not declared bankrupt. He was in a business with a partner and that becane insolvent, My husband (his father) thinks there were court orders out and we think it was mainly credit card companies that he owed a lot of money to. We are pensioners and certainly cannot afford legal bills if we needed to pay all those back debts.
Thank you for your help,
We have been looking at some of the papers that he had and see that a couple of the Court orders were for him and not the business. Dates
around 2005 and 2006.
Yes Leon, that makes perfect sense. I guess that if I am still around in 4 or 5 years I may be able to claim the Super and death benefits then. Is it possible to make a claim that far down the track Leon?
Thank you for all your time and effort. I do appreciate this even if it is not the result I would have liked.
