Do you need additional information?
I have to look over the above again, and will get back to you shortly.
You said your ex-husband filed his Bankruptcy shortly after becoming employed fulltime.
Does this mean his income increased substantially shortly before the Bankruptcy was filed?
No, he has always had a job. Although I do not know if he is still employed which may have prompted the filing of Chapter 7.
If all the information on his Bankruptcy petition is correct, I don't see any chance to avoid having that debt discharged.
That is, there is no way to avoid having your ex-husband
your ex-husband's liability for that debt discharged.
Bankruptcy has the capacity to be very unfair.
Now, the only way for you to avoid liability for that debt is for you to also file a Bankruptcy.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX afraid of that. My next question is: What happens to the Abstract Judgment that I had filed in December 2011 prior to his filing for Chapter &? I was told it stands for 10 years. Can you clarify?
Oops I mean Chapter 7.
Is there any additional information you need?
I believe the above is all at this point. Thanks
Did you see my last question regarding the Abstract Judgment?
Was it one of the 2 questions above the information you found when downloading the case?
If the abstract of judgment placed a lien on his property, then the lien will remain unless your ex-husband also filed a 522(f) lien avoidance motion with the Bankruptcy court.
Did you see papers for a 522(f) lien avoidance motion in the Bankruptcy papers?
