Lawyer Q&A: Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy laws help people who can no longer pay their creditors get a fresh start by liquidating assets to pay their debts or by creating a repayment plan.

Bankruptcy is also a legal status of a person that cannot repay the debts it owes to its creditors. In most jurisdictions, bankruptcy is imposed by a court order, often initiated by the debtor. Here is a recent Lawyer Q&A that I participated in. For more information about bankruptcy call the Law Office Of Paul Stuber in Boulder Colorado at (303) 442-6448.

Question: If I filed for bankruptcy and later got served a summons for court over a debt I had listed on the bankruptcy petition is there anything I can do?

Paul Stuber: It is important to let them know about the bankruptcy right away. Sometimes the contact that was in the petition does not get it to the collection attorney right away. As soon as they know about the bankruptcy they must stop the collections effort under Federal Law. It doesn’t hurt to remind them of that fact and they should let you alone. If you have an attorney make sure the collection attorney is given your attorney’s name and number. If they continue they are in violation of the automatic stay under the Bankruptcy Federal Law.

Marijuana & Driving Laws


Many cases of DUI after using marijuana have been arising in Colorado. Over the past few months we have witnessed many monumental changes in marijuana laws in the State Of Colorado.  I often get asked how much marijuana you can have in your possession, and if you are able to drive after you use marijuana. Here is the latest in a series of Lawyer Q&A regarding marijuana and driving laws.

Q: What are the laws on driving with marijuana in your possession?

My answer: ”There is no specific law saying that you can’t have marijuana in your possession unless you are under 21 or if the quantity is too high. You can’t buy over an ounce and you can’t grow more than 6 plants. There are City laws also that can limit how much you can have. You are also not allowed to smoke in public.”

Another question which I touched on in an earlier blog post is “Are you allowed to drive if you use medical marijuana and are licensed by the state?” The answer is no. Just like other prescribed medications that can impair your ability to drive, if the level of marijuana in your system is too high, you may be convicted of a DUI.
