December 14th, 2009 by Questions

due to my financial situation because of past tax debts, my husband and i seperated a year and a half ago, i moved away to try a new start
and lost everything, i just have have a car and my clothes, due to the stress of the breakup and financial hardships, I have to take medication and seek mental health counselling , my ex husband bought a house with his brother and they are allowing me to stay so i dont have to live on the street and have a monogomous relationship for the past 7 months.
1. how will my ex husband and his brother,s home be affected by this?
2. the initial cause of the breakup and mental health issues were brought on by the financial issues, are there considerations are made
3. will i ever be able to be self employed again

If you are simply staying in the house, have no ownership stake in it never did so, then your ex’s and brothers house really shouldn’t be an issue.

I am not sure in what you mean by the initial causes being considered. Typically the causes of a bankruptcy, while identified, really don’t have any impact on the way a bankruptcy would progress.

In terms of being self employed, the major restrition is that you can not be a director of a limited or incorporated entity while in bankruptcy. You can still be self employed, but you will have to discuss with a local trustee for more details on how the business may be impacted and how you can expect that a bankruptcy will progress.
