Q. My boyfriend is in jail in ky waiting to be inditment and his 60 days will be up on Thanksgiving when will released
A: If a defendant has been held to answer, without being indicted, for longer than 90 days from the finding of probable cause, the circuit court shall, upon motion, order discharge of a defendant from custody. The problem in your scenario is that his 60 days expires on a court holiday. If such a motion is before the court, the Circuit Court should order release on the Monday following the holiday.
Q. When a bankruptcy case is filed do all claims or lawsuits against you get dismissed?
A: Most will but there are exceptions to discharge. The most common non-dischargeable debts are domestic support obligations, student loan debt, and most tax debt owed to federal, state or local governments. Debts from misrepresentations made to get credit, debts arising from fraud, "willful and malicious injury" debts, and debts from claims arising death or injury of another from intoxicated operation (unlawful) of a motor vehicle are also non-dischargeable.
Q. My brother sold his restaurant owes me half of the money hes claiming to want to file bankruptcy to avoid paying me ?
A: If he files a bankruptcy, you will need to file a proof of claim that shows you are a creditor entitled to payment.
