I am going to have to file for Chapter 7 very soon, but I have an internet startup idea that may get funded. My question is, can I hire a Lawyer to create a corporation that will accept the investors money, and keep it isolated from me? Or, am I going to have to wait 60-days untill my CH 7 gets finished?
I'll leave a $15 tip...If you can please clarify: If I file for BK say tomorrow, then say 3 weeks later I have investors that want to invest, what happens if I form a corporation during a BK with no money of my own? And, it does take a full 60 days to get a BK finished right? There's no way to speed it up? Thank you!
