Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I welcome you to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. The question and response may be viewed by other parties as noted in JA’s terms of service. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
Have you filed bankruptcy in Texas or Arkansas? Did they file an adversary proceeding in the bankruptcy and claim the fraud judgment was not a dischargeable debt? An adversary is a separate lawsuit inside bankruptcy court.
I am truly sorry for all you have went through I can only imagine the never ending stress.
Is there a specific legal question I can answer for you?
Do note that Texas is where I am and you will find much friendlier to debtors. In Texas a judgment creditor can't garnish wages, or take any exempt property to include a totally paid off home of unlimited value. If you want the list of exemptions I can get them for you. Mainly your bank account with your name on it is subject to levy/attachment. If this is a case where you no longer have any money then it may be that you just walk away and since the debt will likely be found non dischargeable then go underground (not literally) I mean all cash business of some kind or place in another parties name. Note that even though there is not attorney client relationship here I am not advising you to defraud creditors or evade any taxes.
With that said feel free to ask any follow up questions you have. I am logging off for the night, but I will be back online tomorrow around 1:00 PM CST
