Customer Question

My french wife and I divorced amicably years ago. I gave her everything--house (500,000 euro value) in dordogne, car etc. Yet she owes her lawyer 22,000 Euros in legal fees. She tells me the lawyer has a lien on the house and can force a sale on the house to pay for the 22,000 legal fee... In the US, creditors can't force a sale -- do you have any advice.

Creditors, if they have proper documentation, can go after your assets of any kind. They cannot force the sale of any specific asset unless they have a lien against it but, in fine, the sale of all assets may be ordered by a court if creditors sue for payment of outstanding overdue debt.

i need the name of a good debtor's attorney in perigueux; my ex-wife relied on a credit agency to propose payments but never hear back from the lawyer suing her. she may have missed crucial deadlines. i will pay the entire debt for her immediately, but no one is responding to this offer. it seems unethical what is happening.
