Will the divorce lawyer be paid if you file for bankruptcy?
November 12th, 2014 by Questions
My partner went through a messy separation and custody battle with his ex-wife. His divorce lawyer placed a lien on their home. We have since moved out of province, and the renter abandoned the house, so no mortgage payments are being made. Well after getting injured at work and the costs of the separation he is now considering bankruptcy. His only concern is that his lawyer gets paid. He does not care about keeping the house. If he files, will his lawyer be paid in full? or will the bank take what they need from foreclosure of the home and the lawyer only be left what extra money is there after all other debts are settled?
