Earlier this year I filed bankruptcy and included a personal loan made to me some time ago. The bankruptcy went through and was discharged on 9/29/05.
On 10/10/05 I received a summons on this item that was included in the bankruptcy, I sent it to the attorney who advised they would send a copy of the bankruptcy papers and the discharge to the attorney for the other party.
This did not get done and we are now past the 20 day allowance of time indicated on the summons.
Also, I have learned that the address for the notification of the bankruptcy was missing a digit and it is possible that this individual did not receive proper notification.
First, will the incorrect address for the initial bankruptcy notification hurt me in any way? Will the bankruptcy and discharge hold?
Second, the attorney is now filing a motion of appearance to have the default set aside. If this does not work, what are the ramifications to me with a default judgement?
Thank you for your time and information.
