    When you are in the process of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy you need to have your major economic actions approved by the Court / Trustee. This does not mean that you are constrained from taking logical actions.

    My colleague is correct that you need to review your documents. If the documents allow, a coach seems to be the type of hire which would forward the charitable purpose of your organization.

    I agree with Mr. Wood. In addition to contract there are at least two other reasons a Minnesota Court may have personal jurisdiction over you. One is called In rem Jurisdiction, that is, if you own property in Minnesota. Another is circumstantial. That is, if, for instance, you are in a car accident in Minnesota. You should find a Minnesota attorney to help you.

    This may not be an answer hinging on the law, but one thing you may think of doing is, on a daily or every other day basis, go to the bank that the check maker wrote the check from. Try to cash the check there. You just may get there just after he gets paid and before he takes the money out.

    Minnesota is a work at will state. This means that your boss can fire you for basically any reason, as long as it does not break a law, such as firing you based on race, ethnicity, religion, etc.

    Most county courts have a process, called in forma pauperis, which gives limited income people access to the courts for reduced fees or even free. Contact the Court about this.
