Can a court ordered judgement be included in a bankruptcy, chapter 7 or 13?
Avvo Question: After my divorce I took my ex back to court because I learned he hid money while we were going through the divorce. The judge ruled in his favor and awared him $30,000 in attorneys fees. I do not have this money and now need to file bankruptcy.
Avvo Answer: This is definitely a case that you need to have a bankruptcy attorney review with you. An experienced bankruptcy attorney will basically go through your finances with you and evaluate your debt and financial situation to determine if filing for chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy may be beneficial to you. There are plenty of choices when looking for a bankruptcy attorney. Find one who you are comfortable working with and who can best address your issues. Many bankruptcy attorneys offer payment plans and most will give you a FREE initial consultation.
Though your situation may be a little more complex than most, it is definitely something that an experienced bankruptcy attorney can resolve for you. Visit with a few of them and get started on getting your life on track.
