I was added as a creditor to another's bankruptcy. What dod I do?
I have a little different of a question then you probably get here. My ex-fiancee is filing for Chapter 7. When we split up it was agreed that he owed me a large sum of money (that in turn is owed to credit cards in my name). There were papers signed and a witness. He made payments to me untill our falling out a little over a year ago. I then filed a small claims suit in February. He did not know. He filed for Chapter 7 in April. He was served papers in my suit in June. Last Monday I received a letter from his law firm that I had been added as a creditor in his bankruptcy. Is there anything I can do? I am a student (read: not wealthy) and can not afford this extra credit card debt, which is his. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
