My partner has a SBA loan from 2019. Will it become my debt after we get married?

But, if, for instance, you somehow participated in your... Read more »

This is not a bankruptcy question. This is a State Court matter, unless Federal Court, and you need to speak to someone in your State. This is because they (Plaintiff) may need to do an Alias Summons.

Give the reporting agency copies of your extensions and challenge the late reports on your credit report. That should be sufficient to correct it.

The amounts he owes you, whatever they are, is a domestic support obligation and not dischargeable in bankruptcy. However, you should hire an attorney and file a proof of claim for the actual amount he owes, not the amount he claims he owes. That will help you get your money faster.

If it was discharged how do I make sure that debt is paid back to me?

Not if it is in the nature of support and maintenance. If I’d is discharged go back into your divorce case and make a motion to hold him in contempt.

If it was not listed in the bankruptcy, you will either have to pay it or reopen your bankruptcy and add it as a debt that should have been discharged.

Consult a local bankruptcy attorney to see if he qualifies for Chapter7. That could solve all of his problems.
