This is all the same case as my previous questions. A big factor in my ability to collect is other debts or judgements against the person who owes me the money (what is the proper term?) There were IRS liens against him (Or are they only against his property??) How can I tell if they are still valid? I have the Instrument numbers. How long before he might be able to get the IRS to release them ? He may file BK once the IRS liens are released. Besides opposing the dismissal based on a fraud claim what other ways are there to prevent the discharge? Can I negotiate with the IRS to not release his tax liens until he settles with me?? Do they ever do that, use their power to help a citizen?
