If the debt that you were sued over, or the judgment itself was included in your bankruptcy, you only need send a copy of your bankruptcy papers to the credit reporting agencies. The judgment will not "come off", but it should get marked "included in bankruptcy" or "discharged through bankruptcy".
Anybody can file for bankruptcy.
No, they cannot be sued civilly because of such decisions.
Bankruptcy is altogether different than criminal settlements
If it can be proven, the judge can be impeached, arrested, or subject to being sued civilly.
Of course. Actually you are only "charged" for a crime and you are "sued" civilly. In your example, the retail theft is a crime and can be indicted, tried and punished. If restitution is not ordered in the criminal trial, the victii can sue civilly to recover.
Yes, the accident and bankruptcy are two different issues.
In general, yes, if you haven't files bankruptcy.
Absolutely; anybody can be sued. If the court orders you to make a payment which you are unable to pay, you can declare bankruptcy.
No, lawsuits do not prevent a person from filing bankruptcy. The lawsuit will be stopped when the BK is filed and the debt or judgment can possibly be included in the filing. It is at the discretion of the trustee as to whether a BK or any portion of it is allowable according to bankruptcy law. The BK petitioner has the option of appealing any trustee ruling with which they disagree.
I think yes there are chances that person can be sued in a civil law suit because filing bankruptcy is such a process that it remains it in your name for at least for 10 years.and it affect on all ways to your life.
Yes, but generally not for something that occured before they filed....that must be handled by the bankruptcy court - who may - depending on the issue - ask another court to determine liability.
Not by creditors who agreed to participate in the chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Yes, if it is not a perfected lien against real property and the debt was discharged in the bankruptcy.
Don't do that. It's called fraud.
they are getting sued because they stole the name from someone in the U.S.A.
Yes you can file for chapter 13 bankruptcy after being sued. NO the liability and payments that attach if the other party is successful in the suit will NOT be discharged or reduced based on the fact that you have filed for bankruptcy. You will owe that individual the full amount (if they prevail) and it will stay with you throughout the bankruptcy proceeding and beyond. The above got it' hands crossed: ONLY items (debts and assets) that exist BEFORE (pre-petition) the filing of a bankruptcy ARE involved and protected by the bankruptcy. Those after the filing (POST petition) obviously are new and not excusable. There are some circumstances that may prevent a pre-petition item from being included: Type of debt (say child support), or if it was taken in "anticipation" of filing bankruptcy or too soon before so it looks that way.)
Only if you otherwise qualify for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy involves discharging debt. Certain debts are not dischargeable, like back child support, student loans, some taxes. If you are in violation of a state law requiring insurance coverage, filing bankruptcy will not help.
You can always be sued for hurting someone. Is it worse to hurt someone while wearing a bullet proof vest? Not particularly.
