I was recently given an Absolute Discharge from Bankruptcy from the Court of Queen’s Bench. Alberta Justice is listed as the main creditor(from an unsatisfied judgement against me from a motor vehicle accident).At no time did they object to the application for bankruptcy,the time I was in the bankruptcy or in the thirty days following my Absolute Discharge of Bankruptcy from the Court of Queen’s Bench.Alberta Justice is now demanding payment of the debt.How can they?

This is a bit of a unique situation, technically if you look at the letter of the law this is debt is simply a judgement debt that is cleared once you are discharged. However, the courts have decided otherwise. The courts have essentially said that the debt can be cleared, but your right to a motor vehicle license will not continue unless you continue to make payments on this debt to the unsatisfied judgement fund. So the net effect is that this debt is looked at differently, assuming you want to retain a driver’s license. For more information on this you are best to contact your original trustee.
