Thank you Erin…
The ‘pre-existing debt’ is something I was not aware of. I know that the bankruptcy filing is supposed to report all debt so that creditors are notified. The suit is not filed, but the ‘threat’ of a suit has been stated. So should there be something in the bankruptcy claim stating that a suit ‘could’ happen?
This AA suit is unforseeable and can’t be disclosed as a pre-existing debt. So wouldn’t that paramour’s attn just respond with notification of bankruptcy status and the suit result in a ‘stay’? Reason being that the aledged offense occured prior to the bankruptcy filing? Also, how could ex collect if paramour is bankruptcy?
Other issue: Proof of happy marriage is a plaintiff requirement. I had a separation agreement drawn up 1 year prior to meeting paramour. Would that provide proof that the marriage was not happy?
Not to be argumentative…just looking for clarity and opinion. THanks!
