My company provided a non-recourse cash advance to a plaintiff

This answer was rated:

My company provided a non-recourse cash advance to a plaintiff who has a premise liability claim. The client filed chapter 7 BK in December 2011 and our deadline to ojbect to the discharge is 03/05/12. The case is in the District of Connecticut. Our advances are not considered a loan or debt and therefore, cannot be discharged. The client acknowledged this in the agreement and also committed fraud at the time he executed the agreement, which should further prohibit a discharge.

 

How do I go about filing the objection.

WebLaw :

Thank you for using JustAnswer. Exactly what do you want to know?

Customer:

My deadline is Monday, can I obtain the necessary forms to file the objection to discharge the debt or do I need to retain an attorney to file?

WebLaw :


I am working on your answer. One moment please.

WebLaw :

A creditor can legally file an objection to the dischargeability of the debt without an attorney. This is done by filing an adversary proceeding in the bankruptcy court.

WebLaw :

Here are some/all of the forms you will require:

Customer:

Are one of the links the correct link to object to being a ceditor? Hopefully, that question made sense.

WebLaw :

No. You have a claim against the debtor that you wish to have determined to be nondischargeable. Therefore you are considered a creditor.

Customer:

Are the forms self explanatory and therefore, an attorney isn't needed (although advised to have)?

WebLaw :

No they are not self-explanatory but rather general guidelines of what the court will accept. Bankruptcy is a subspecialty in the law. There are no easy to use forms that I am aware of.

Customer:

Do you have an attorney you can refer me to in Hartford Conneticut that can help with the action?

WebLaw :

I am not permitted to refer you to specific attorney. Here is a link to a free legal referral site that may assist you in locating competent local counsel: www.Martindale.com
