Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I was never added to the list of debitors as it was more than likely overlooked being 1.5 yrs after the fact.
A fi-fa is what is needed to be able to effectively file any garnishments, repossessions or any other legal action.
From this, it will explain a little better than I can.
My main question is: Since I am not included in the bankruptcy in any shape or form, can I garnish her wages? My understanding is you have to be included to be excluded meaning that since I was not included in the bankruptcy, I should be excluded from the laws not letting a person go after assets/money. A bankruptcy does not give a person the right to go out and run up bills under the umbrella of the prior court ruling. Please advise.
