Long After Bankruptcy

April 24th, 2009 by Questions

When I went bankrupt in the early 2000`s a relative had put a mortgage on their house and they had to pay that mortgage off when they sold the house. I am still hounded by them for payment of this money. I am not able to pay anything as I am still rebuilding my life after my situation. I was told early on that that I had no legal responsibility to pay this and that it would be against the law to do so. Is this true? Legally what can I do if I am still hounded for this money?

If you owed your realtive money, it relates to prior to the time you filed for bankruptcy, you did not pledge any of your assets as security against the loan, and it was listed on your bankruptcy documents, then you are legally cleared from this debt. If you are still being hounded give them a copy of your bankruptcy documents and instruct them that you have been cleared from this debt so the need to stop attempting to collect on it. If they continue to attempt to levy collections, hire a lawyer and send them a well worded lawyer theatening legal action should they pursist.
