Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I know it was malicious but the BK was official mid November I believe. Can't I sue her for property damage or anything?? I am stunned that the law is there to protect HER but where is my protection?? I am baffled...
I've been trying to figure out ways to get my money since last summer and have taken it slow and steady to do it right. I even asked a BK attorney in Idaho if I could take her to small claims and he said I could... that my rent she owed was separate from the damage done to my home. Kiss the rent goodbye, but I could win a lawsuit for the damage, so I did... and now, I'm screwed??
I'll find out the dates for sure and go from there... it was my dream home as a single mom and it crushed me that she did that to it and to me... anyway, thanks for your help. Happy 2012
