Just received a lawsuit. How much time do I have?
Its not uncommon for lawsuits to be filed against debtors after retaining Doan Law Firm and prior to filing Bankruptcy, especially on accounts that have been delinquent for 6 months or longer. Yet as long the Bankruptcy is filed within two (2) to three (3) months of service of the lawsuit, adverse consequences such as a wage garnishments, bank levies, or real estate liens usually are not an issue. Moreover, the Bankruptcy eventually resolves the lawsuit(s). However, waiting too long can definitely be risky.
