Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
Thanks for your answer, I have been doing some research myself and have came across this information in the Insolvency Act ..
"After the making of a bankruptcy order no person who is a creditor of the bankrupt in respect of a debt provable in the bankruptcy shall—before the discharge of the bankrupt, commence any action or other legal proceedings against the bankrupt except with the leave of the court and on such terms as the court may impose."
A petition has already been filed against me in Court. I am wondering exactly what "leave of the court" means. By accepting the petition, has "leave of the court" already been granted? Or could I ask the court to consider not accepting the petition against me due to my bankruptcy?
