Q: How do you respond to a notice of foreign judgement? It was for taxes 3 years ago and it was discharged in bankruptcy?

The taxing authority is claiming the debt is not dischagrable because they sent you a tax warrant 3 years ago before you actually filed for bankruptcy. Per the bankruptcy laws however that doesn't mean anything.

Timothy Denison answered on Mar 2, 2020

You file a response in the court where the foreign judgment is attempting to be enforce and show the court where the debts were discharged.

Q: I have court today for aid in execution. Would it be best to file bankruptcy? Will it stop this?
David Adams
David Adams answered on Jul 19, 2019

A bankruptcy filing would stop the need for a hearing in aid of execution. The bankruptcy attorney would be able to notify the other side of the filing, and keep any further action from occurring whether that be garnishment, attachment, etc.
