Welcome to JustAnswer,

WebLaw :

Only a corporation is liable for the corporate debt. You would be personally liable for the debt only if you cosigned personally. You will need to answer the complaint to avoid a default

Customer:

The vendor is a printer and I signed for the material when I picked it up but all billing was to my business name. If I fill the personal information on order of financial disclousure and financial disclosure statement can I open an account under my name only, our personal account list my husband and I. The Judgement reads Concepts and Solutions, LLC and Sharon McGovern. I recently changed the company to an LLC it was an S Corp when this work was done.

WebLaw :

Since the judgment has already been entered against you I suggest that you retain local counsel to have the judgment set aside. Currently, with the judgment against you personally, the creditor may use the judgment to attach assets in your name personally as well as your personal bank account held with your husband

Customer:

One more questions can he call my clients and slam me. There were only 3 affected by this but they said he was brutal.

WebLaw :

You can consider filing an action against the person for the tort of interference with contract based on a business expectancy and request an injunction from further contact with your clients

To establish a prima facie claim for tortious interference with contract, you must show the existence of a valid contractual relationship or business expectancy (your clients); the interferer's knowledge of the relationship or expectancy; intentional interference inducing or causing a breach or termination of the relationship or expectancy; and resultant damage to the party whose relationship or expectancy has been disrupted.
