Lawyer's Assistant: No, you can ask a one off question to try things out.

This job is really important for my university experiance

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Qld

Good Evening

You cannot be a director of a company if you are a bankrupt.

If you have a third party that is willing to do it then you can be an employee and share holder of the company.

You can appoint a parent if you want.

This will assist you.

Once you are no longer a bankrupt you can then be appointed as the director.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
