Hi there, Joseph, I dont actually understand this sentence below I'm afraid..can you make this a little clearer??
The family member would also need to sue the family member and obtain a judgment against that person in order to request to have the judgment enforced by placing a lien on their property.
Does this mean the family members ( there are actually two of them owed money ) have to sue their father ( who has got the bill ) in order to stop the hospital claiming the property..Sorry but its unclear!! Thanx for your quick answer...terry
As it is late in Americal now ( or early depending upon your view! I will get back to you tomorow so I can clear this up and ACCEPT your answer so you can get paid!!!
Cheers XXXXX XXXXX
Right OK Joseph. so then that gives a problem...is it a question of who sues first gets the priority for ownership ( or payment ) or doesnt that matter? Or is it a question of who is owed the largest amount gets priority...sounds a bit complicated lol!!! Supposing that the amount of the property doesnt cover the debt owed? ..what happens then???
