Hi - my name is Chris and I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
Is your ex-wife suing you for money you owe her, or for money that was owed to the orthodontist?
money she says I owe her...ortho was not on her list of creditors
further, she did not list this "unpaid recievable" from me as an asset in her filing
receivable that is
Although her Bankruptcy cannot prevent her from suing you - because you are not a creditor - she would not be able to keep any money she is able to get from you - as this money would belong to the Bankruptcy court.
is the case is settled, how can they collect that $$$
could i put it in an escrow acct for the court?
Additionally, she can get into trouble because she did not list this potential lawsuit on her Bankruptcy petition.
Perhaps if you explain this to her, she will dismiss the lawsuit.
she'll probably just give me her legal opinion on the issue...this broad really wants $$$ for her fourth wedding...ahahhahaaa
But if you contact the Bankruptcy court to let them know about the lawsuit, she will not be able to get any of the money.
And she will get into trouble.
that's what I'll do...thx
It would better for you if she drops the lawsuit, so that you do not have to contact the Bankruptcy court.
And it would be better for her if you do not have to contact the Bankruptcy court.
