I disagree with counsel as some DMV, or MVC fines are able to be discharged. It would depend on what the fine was for to determine if discharged. Also, you would have to have more debt than just MVC as the court usually does not approve single creditor bankruptcies.
If so does that mean she doesn’t have to pay me what the judge ordered her to pay and is there a way to stop her from not paying us and adding it to the bankruptcy when she files? We filed the case in small claims before she ever started to file for bankruptcy but now she’s saying her lawyer is... Read more »

This is not an Education Law Question. This should be in Family Law and/or Criminal Law. Education deals with School districts, tenure etc. Please re-post in proper group to get a proper and accurate response.
It really depends if you signed as a guarantor of the bills, or did you not sign anything. Ask them for proof that you signed as a guarantor before you make anymore payments. Also remember that being a power of attorney does not automatically make you liable.
First, you should be speaking with your counsel, if you have one. If you did not use Counsel, please check that you used the proper exemption (don't know if GA uses Federal or State-check with a lawyer) so that the funds in the account are exempt and the Trustee will not take it. If you...Read more »
You do not indicate if you are being sued civilly or criminally. You may qualify for a public defender for a criminal matter but not a civil matter.
