Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. I hit someone in the back of there vehicle i had no insurance and out of state license what is my situation?
A: In addition to the information in the first answer, if you are unable to pay any judgment, it bankruptcy can stop or undue suspension of your driving privilege.
Q. My understanding is that if your MD LLC is forfeit, can you register a different business without penalty?
A: No, you are fine.
Q. How long does a creditor have to pickup PMSI items that are surrendered on the statement int. post Chapter 7 in Maryland
A: Do you mean post Chapter 7 filing or post Chapter 7 discharge and case closed. While the Chapter 7 is open, you need to file a motion and obtain relief from the automatic stay before acting. The property is property of the bankruptcy estate and although the debtor has custody, it is the trustee who may have rights in the property. In most cases only when the case closes is the property abandoned back to the debtor and available to the creditor. However, you may file a motion to compel the trustee to administer or abandon the property with the trustee may consent informally and give notice of intent to abandon. Once a formal abandonment has been accomplished, you're free to proceed.
Q. I have a IRS lien and judgment against me and I filed bankruptcy a year ago can this still stop this
A: You don't really provide enough information for a lawyer to answer this. When were the IRS lien and judgment entered compared to the date the bankruptcy petition was filed? I assume the lien and judgment were pre-bankruptcy? What is the lien on? Real estate, tangible personal property? When I call or email me for a quick, no charge many consult?
Q. Can I be forced into involuntary bankruptcy if I have no assets?
A: Yes. All that is required is that you be insolvent. Just because you have no assets does not mean there are no assets recoverable from third parties due to fraudulent conveyances or preferential payments to individual creditors. This kind of thing occurred when investors were actually paid by Bernie Madoff had their money "clawed back."
