Second, I would say, it depends on how it is written in the State Court, because 11 U.S.C. 523(a)(15) is a catch-all for any types of Orders in the matrimonial court not... Read more »
Do I need to be concerned
answered on Jun 26, 2022
No. That money belongs to you. Unless your lawyer received and misappropriated and kept the money (which is a crime), you should not be affected by his bankruptcy.
answered on Jun 6, 2022
No. Fines, court costs and restitution are not dischargeable.
I am about to be garnished for my full check for 2 and a half months.
I am wondering if I can apply for a loan to survive. If I get the loan I am okay. If I don't get the loan, will having applied for it prevent me from filing for bankruptcy?
answered on Aug 5, 2021
The simple answer is no, applying for a loan does NOT make you ineligible for bankruptcy relief. Do NOT make any material misrepresentations on your loan application. (It's a crime to make a false statement to a financial institution, insured by the federal government, in a loan... Read more »

You cannot file for bankruptcy on only one debt - all of your debts must be listed and are affected. You may want to consider seeing a debt settlement attorney in your area, perhaps you can work out a favorable settlement on this one debt.
They used this to file a complaint to stop my lawyer from filing a dismissal and filing a new chapter 7 as a way to force me to accept an offer to buy my house at a low price.
answered on Jun 30, 2020
Unless they purchased the lien prior to filing bankruptcy, it is unlikely they can do so after the filing and leverage you.
If the business ends up failing and I have to file Bankruptcy will this new line of credit be able to be included in BK?

Just take it to the lender when you leave town and drop the keys in the night deposit.
Also, if the bank will take the house for what's owed to them, can the surviving family take over the debt so that they can keep the house?
answered on Mar 17, 2020

I can't speak to the exact procedure in Oregon, but it's probably done by bringing an adversary proceeding to have the debt determined to be nondischargeable. You'll need an attorney for this.
