Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Have you included this debt / judgment in your bankruptcy? What is the current status of your bankruptcy case?
This debt was included in my personal bankruptcy which was filed on 25 Jan 2013, the date that the plantiff refused our last settlement offer. The hearing was held on 10 Jan 2013. I went to the doctor on 9 Jan 2013. I was diagnosed with chronic migraines, fibermygalia and possible cognitive problems in addition to my normal diabetes associated pain. The doctor order botox which requires pre-order, special delivery and administsration by doctor within 24 hours of receipt. I was given 31 botox injections on 14 Jan 2013.
I have not filed corporate bankruptcy due to lack of funds. The loan was also on a personal gurantee.
Understood. This is really more of a bankruptcy question, so I'm going to opt out to allow a bankruptcy attorney to assist further. You do not need to respond to this, as it will lock it and keep our bankruptcy experts from being able to respond. Please be patient, and someone will get to you soon.
The bankruptcy hearing is scheduled for 26 March 2013. the showcause hearing is scheduled for 25 March 2013.
I don't understand the implifications of either. My Bankruptcy attorney is only handling my personal bankruptcy. I do not have enough funds right now to handle the business bankruptcy. I have at least one customer that has stated they intend to pay me. I don't like the default judgement on my record ( nor the bankruptcy eitherafter being in business for 17 years) but I also do not want to be held in contempt of court.
My personal bankruptcy attorney says the personal default has been stayed by the bankruptcy filing. He said since the companies are insolvent I should not worry. He does not represent the companies. I do not have a copy of the filing and I am the sole owner. I am worried.
Thanks for your answer. I was not aware of the change of venue. Does this change of venue apply even if the contract I signed says that New York is the state where the law applies?
My attorney is not registered for New York. Can you recommend someone who can at least respond to the show cause ?
