    and also she's expecting a settlment bcoz she have a workers como case. so lets say she file bankruptsy and then later she gets her settlment can they reopen the case and go after her to collect the money? and in this case can she go to jail for that or no? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
    The problem is the settlement money may be used as an asset in bankruptcy. However, that will depend on state law and which bankruptcy she files. If the debt is discharged before she receives the settlement, then they cannot go after her for that same debt. Nor can they sell the debt to another collection agency even though that tends to happen from time to time.

    She needs to seek legal counsel on the lawsuit and bankrutcy. Click here for additional help or provide the link to your wife.

      thnx again hudson . i really dont kno wnaything about this whole thing. they'r giving her 1 month to respond to the court .and there was a date from nov 2007? so does she have to respond within 1 month from that day which is november or from the day they served her? and what is the best option for her now? in her setuation i mean </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
      From the date they served her she has that time frame. She really needs to respond. Failure to do so will result in summary judgement, which is not a good thing.

          Very odd that they served the cousin and not your wife.

                  However it is advisable to use a qualified attorney in most cases,the statement that one cannot do a bankruptcy without a lawyer is not true.

                  There are many firms online and offline that are not attorneys that will gladly prepare forms for a fee. Individuals themselves can also prepare and file their own bankrupcty.
