They are not out of business as they are still giving him some hours, but his boss cannot give us any help with his back wages. The Labor Board says we cannot file with them because of the bankruptcy. They say that we need to file with the Bankruptcy court. I have tried searching for a form or info, but it's overwhelming. I saw something about a making a formal demand to the employer. Any information on either or both would be great. We live in California. We need something quick. Thanks

  • Chapter 7 Of The Bankruptcy Code?

    I am a little confused about chapter 7. Any help or input would be appreciated. Thanks! Martin mortgaged his farmlands with the State Bank of Florida for promissory notes amounting to $470,000. He defaulted on the payments, and the bank sought to foreclose the mortgage. The state court granted foreclosure. Just before the farmlands were about to be sold, Martin filed a bankruptcy petition under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code. Martin has a regular income of $60,000 from a full time job as a MRI technician. Is Chapter 7 the appropriate provision for Martin's case? What should the bankruptcy court do? What support could I show for the court's ruling to proceed or dismiss the Chapter 7 filing?

  • Could we have lied to our bankruptcy lawyer about a pending personal injury case (in our favor)?

    When we filed for bankruptcy last year, our bankruptcy attorney asked us if we had any pending lawsuits. We replied with a yes, as I had to hire a personal injury lawyer cause of a car accident we were in. We were forced to get a lawyer because of the extensive medical bills...the insurance company of the at-fault driver refused to pay any of our medical bills were over $25,000 &growing with my treatment and Dr's. didn't know when I'd be finished receiving treatment. With us already paying some of the bills out of pocket, it got to the point were forced into bankruptcy....there was no other way. We were told by the trustee and our bankruptcy lawyer that all monies received from the personal injury case would have to be applied toward the creditors in the bankruptcy. So in the end...these are the figures... P.I. lawsuit total: $46,000+. P.I. lawyer got his cut: $17,000+. Leaving $29,000+ to creditors. Could we have lied &gotten all of the $29,000 w/out getting caught
