I owe lots of money, $5,000. to the IRS. I had a company back in 2007, and filed taxes. I can't pay them now, I'm broke. I owe about $400,000. as a result of being the loser of a civil suit. My company was sued back in 2007 for trademark infringement. I lost by default. I owe $92,000 more to the Government. I had a Federal conviction back in 1999, and as a result I had a restitution of $92,000. My lawyer had it changed to a civil debt and nothing criminal.
I am currently involved in a personal injury case and stand to be awarded a mere $70,000 to $150,000. Will filing bankrupt stop my debtors from being able to put a lien on my winnings, making them able to get my money from my Attorney before I get it? Is there any way I can file bankruptcy and not have my credit ruined
