California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
I simply stopped operations, Could not pay the rent anymore. Did not go through bankruptcy. I was the sole owner of the corporation & president at the same time.
Can I still declare personal bankruptcy now since I was not even served, They say there was a judgment but they can only furnish me a copy of the violation although they gave me a case #XXXXX There is no way I can pay this because this is just the tip pf the iceberg. I consulted another lawyer who wants to review the paperwork. I cannot put in writing the original cause of the problem but since the employee who brought this upon the company had given me a copy of His security and as far as I understood way back in 2009, I did not have to check the authenticity of his papers as long he provided it to me, I did not have to verify it. Now I have found out that this was another persons name. I am a registered democrat because, I care for minority people, I was just shocked that people you are helping can go do that to you. Apart fro this is there a way I can Do an offer in compromise to reduce the debt and make payment plans. I am 64 years old, and I want to clear these problems before I am 65 and be able to care of my 11 year old daughter. Your advise would be very much appreciated.
