Customer Question

Someone sold me a vehicle with a fraudulent title. When I was about to file a small claims complaint, their bankruptcy atty called me and told me the defendant filed bankruptcy.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. Thank you for using this service. The short answer is that you need to file an adversary action because the bankruptcy filing stays any court actions. Please let me know if you need any clarification, and I would appreciate it if you would rate my service. Thank you and good luck!
