Thank you for your question. I am a licensed New Jersey professional. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.That is a good question. A receivership is essential a guardianship. A trustee is set in place that ends up reviewing all debts and then prioritizing them. So if this debt is owed to you by the company, you become the creditor and it becomes up to the trustee to figure out the scheduling of when and how you would be paid out. I tend to also agree with your attorney that this may be a good thing--judges realize that receiverships are beyond the control of parties unless you are part owner, and showing that funds will be owed and coming outside your control may extend or modify your payment plans based on this motion t the court. This is literally one of a few situations where requesting a change last minute is justified unless you knew of the receivership in the past and did not choose to act upon it.Good luck.
