Thankyou so much this was very helpful. Wilk file motion to compel with stay and look into having banjruptcy court review fees as well.
Intetesting bc my wife did not have a signed agreement/contract ( he sent me a copy of an unsigned contract so I am not even sure I signed anything other than a contract signed five or six yeats ago) He is charging me for work done on her behalf and discharged in bk. Possibly she never owed him anything in the first place. Will file my motions and proceed with ADR. Thank you again
The Connecticut Statute of Frauds says you don't have an obligation to pay the bills of another (a guaranty) unless you have promised to do so in a writing signed by you.
Filed arbitration motion and am waiting. The lawyer filed a motion against arbitration because he doesn't agree. We will see what happens.
