Bankruptcy Calgary Q&A forum



I am considering a bankruptcy (or perhaps consumer proposal) after an epic 3 year separation battle in the courts has left me in an unsustainable debt situation. But I'm wondering what happens to a current ongoing civil lawsuit. It's not a creditor though, its my ex's ex-girlfriend suing me for 275k (about our family home which she was at some point the titular owner... anyway its an epic separation - there were 5 lawsuits total, only this one remains). There is 90k paid into court over this (equity from the foreclosure) ... tbd but not likely to be resolved without a trial and that is a year away still... what happens to that beast? Thanks! Just might be needing your services soon! Anne

Hi Anne, Should you decide to file for bankruptcy, the Trustee will have to review your interest in the lawsuit/ equity paid into Court as it is potential monies available to pay your creditors. I would suggest that you sit downtown with our office to discuss the bankruptcy process and review the details of the lawsuit and how it may affect you.
