and the other question?
by the way thank you
I have used your services in the past. I have a new question, for which I am willing to pay for as always. I have a lawsuit in Indiana. It is actually a workers compensation hearing because my previous property manager/contractor was shot while working. He is now trying to get money from me through the workers compensation board. His attorney even got the judge to send me a letter that the court requires me to be at the hearing. My question is that if I file bankruptcy before this court date will the automatic stay in chapter 7 bankruptcy stop this court case and wipe out the whole problem?
