Legal Answers
26 Questions Answered

Q. We have jointly owned car and rv he only owns half the house. How can we fix this? Ex wife not cooperative.
A: Hire a bankruptcy lawyer.
Q. If someone filed, but they die before the bankruptcy goes through, are the kids responsible for paying off the debt?
A: As long as the estate gets a discharge, the kids will not be responsible unless they co-signed for the debt.
Q. My wife slipped on a wet deck recently on a cruise down to Mexico - how long would we have to file a lawsuit?
A: Read your cruise contract. Most have a one year statute of limitations with six month notice requirement. But again, READ YOUR PASSENGER TICKET.
Q. Will the hospital ever be able to come after me for unpaid bills once I declare bankruptcy?
A: Not if they are discharged in a chapter 7.
Q. If two ships collide and I get injured while working on one, can I sue my employer for my injuries or would I need to
A: It depends on a lot of things, for example was your employer at fault, are they properly paying your maintenance and cure, was the other vessel at fault. These and other questions need to discussed with a maritime lawyer.
Q. I’m looking into filing bankruptcy. I would like to learn about the process and types of bankruptcy.
A: The simple answer is no, if the value of your assets fall within the allowable exemptions then you do not lose those belongings. However, bankruptcy is complex thus you should consult with an experienced attorney for a complete evaluation.
Q. Will I lose my house if I file for bankruptcy? I still owe on the mortgage.
A: You certainly will if you stop paying on the mortgage, however, in order to properly answer this question you will need to consult with a bankruptcy lawyer and provide additional information such as the FMV of the home, the amount of mortgage, other possible liens, the amount of equity in the home. Also whether you qualify for Chapter 7 or will be filing chapter 13 are important factors along with the amount of your debt. So really, this question requires more information for a proper answer and for that reason you should consult with attorney.
Q. How long do I have to file a claim if I get injured while working on a fishing boat?
A: 3 years for a Jones Act claim. Consult with a maritime attorney ASAP.
Q. If someone boards my vessel without permission, then refuses to leave, how may I legally evict them?
A: Depending upon additional facts and the particular jurisdiction, probably best to call the local authorities, i.e. Coast Guard, police or sheriff before saying or attempting much other than instructing the individual to leave. Be sure to have a credible witness who can attest to the reasonableness of your actions.
