Customer Question
Among many questions .....

Among many questions ... I’d like to know if my ex husbands chapter 13 bankruptcy will affect me financially.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And has anything been officially filed?

New York. I think so but he keeps me out of the loop and he threatened me not to get involved

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed in civil court? If so, what?

I don’t know

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My ex really took advantage of my naivety. I was married for 17 years with three kids. Now I’m stuck broke without my kids all because he had the money smarts and experience with a previous divorce. I feel helpless

I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

There are a couple ways that his filing bankruptcy can affect you, and I will explain those to you.

First can you let me know, how long have you two been divorced? Is the divorce process still underway?

Have you been awarded alimony payments?

Thanks!

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.
