Consumer bankruptcy such as Chapter 7 does in fact discharge unsecured debt. Unsecured debt includes credit cards and the kind of contractual liability that you have described. The exception is if you can prove that at the time that he signed that contract he had intent not to pay. The answer to your question is that you should not have a major issue having the contract to which you both agreed and signed and honored if you take him to court before he files bankruptcy. If he files a bankruptcy, then the issues you face could get a bit more complex and at that point you should consult with an attorney. Your other question as to whether he can discharge the debt even though it's in the contract that he can't, raises the issue of whether people can agree or contract their way around bankruptcy law. The answer is no. Bankruptcy law supersedes private agreements to the contrary and the discharge would cancel his legal obligation to pay that debt to you.

How much it will be charged?
Notarization is generally only for documents or statements. By having a notary public sign a document, the person is swearing that the statement is true and/or made for the purpose stated therein. Examples include an affidavit wherein the signer is swearing that all of the statements are true. You likely need a photo ID from the state, if you don't qualify for a driver's license for whatever reason. If there is some particular special reason you need a "notarized photo ID" please re-post your question and provide details. Best wishes.See question
If I can't afford a lawyer but feel the need to have a will created just in case, what is the best option? It's simple instructions and just need to name an executor for the will. There are some templates online but what is a good way to have one ...
With another attorney once I went to the paperclip store and purchased some of those quickie will kits just to take a look. We did a local cable TV show and it was interesting to see that these one-size-fits-all instant will kits did not address many points that are important. For example, every state has it's own laws regarding wills, the number of witnesses required, and how to do the self-attestation clause so that the witnesses would never have to actually ever appear in court. If you truly want to save money, retain a local attorney who does wills. The goal is to properly enact a valid will in your jurisdiction. Here's more on what I mean: http://www.attorney-myers.com/2015/04/wills-clear-and-precise-avoid-disputes/ Some of the nastiest litigation cases I have ever been involved in have been will disputes. Do it right the first time to avoid problems. Forget about the 'standard' templates. I hope that this has helped and I wish you the best.See question

Diverticulitis can be an extremely serious life threatening condition. You need to present to a physician or an emergency room to obtain treatment. Forget about asking for another nurse or asking what the hospital can or can not do and get the treatment you need. Be reasonable.See question
Why do State and Government injury lawsuits cap an attorney fee at 25% NET? Could it be that this is the fair way of collecting an appropriate fee. I think its pretty common that the Attorney Nets more than the Client in most cases under $75k, but...
In a typical small or midrange personal injury case the law firm invests a great deal of time and resources dealing with the medical lien, in obtaining an accurate itemized lien, which, ironically can be a challenge. The itemized lien then needs to be "parsed", that is each line is reviewed and anything NOT related to the case is tagged. Those items unrelated to the injury then need to be challenged and additional time and effort is devoted to convincing the heath carrier that the unrelated items be stripped. After that step, the attorney then works to negotiate the lowest possible lien. This has become an increasing challenge in recent years in that the U.S. Supreme Court has issued decisions more and more protective of the health insurance companies. I've actually taught seminars on the topic of personal injury liens and I find that personal injury attorneys have devoted a great deal of effort to learning and pursuing this step on behalf of their clients. So, I contend that where a great deal of effort is devoted to dealing with the liens, it is fair to say that the diligent personal injury attorney earns every cent of the gross. Here's more on liens and that Supreme Court case: http://www.attorney-myers.com/2013/12/health-plan-liens/ I hope this information helps and I wish you the best. If we disagree, you are free to pursue the alternative of going to the legislature, as another AVVO attorney suggested.See question
Lost of memory do to head drama Crossing the street hit by automobile
I am sorry to hear that you have sustained a serious injury of this nature. Most personal injury attorneys handle personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis; this means that the injured person who retains the attorney pays nothing until the end of the case. The contingent fee arrangement is "free" in the sense that you do not pay anything to hire the attorney. The personal injury attorney works on the case until there is a payment, whether by judgment, settlement or otherwise, and in the end that is when the attorney receives a percentage of the settlement. Here is more on the contingent fee agreement: http://www.attorney-myers.com/2012/03/personal-injury-contingent-fee-agreements/ I hope that this information helps, and wish you the best with this.See question

Evaluating personal injury claims requires analysis of many factors far beyond those even that you have posted. I am sorry to hear that you have sustained such a severe injury. The best recommendation anyone can give you is to retain experienced personal injury counsel to review all of the facts and circumstances surrounding your injury and to prepare a thorough analysis and demand to the insurance company. I know that is not necessarily the advice that you are looking for by posting your inquiry on this site but you're just not being fair to yourself by trying to go it alone. If there were such a thing as a personal injury evaluation calculator, here it is: http://www.attorney-myers.com/2011/06/what-is-my-personal-injury-case-worth/ I hope that this helps you and I wish you the best.See question
What to do when insurance offer low ball settlement for auto accident injury and tells you do what ever you want
Insurance companies deny that they low ball personal injury claims but in reality the fact is that low balls are a common occurrence. A low ball is an offer that is far below that offer which a reasonable person would consider fair based on all of the facts and circumstances of the case including the liability and the damages. Why do insurance companies offer low ball settlements? The reason that insurance companies offer low ball settlements is that they know sometimes they are able to grind people down to the point that they wave the white flag of surrender and take it. None of this is my opinion, insurance industry insiders have documented this phenomenon. Here's the link: http://www.attorney-myers.com/2014/07/insurance-low-ball/ The answer to your question as to what to do when the insurance company offers you a low ball is to retain an experienced personal injury attorney in your jurisdiction to slam the ball out of the park. I wish you the best with this.See question
I was hit on the back side in my back door he says I came out of nowhere
Submit the claim to your insurance company and let them take care of it. If it was the other person's fault they will 'subrogate' to the other person's insurance company, requiring them to reimburse your insurance company's expenditure. This is why we all pay the big bucks for car insurance.See question
