Hi thank you for your message, when you ex lent you the money was this just informally or did you draw up a contract?
Hi thank you for your message. The position is that generally an agreement for money to be loaned in a relationship is not enforceable because it is presumed that a couple in a relationship does not intend the agreement to be legally enforceable. Therefore, regardless of the issue regarding the bankruptcy I consider it would be very difficult for your ex to enforce the debt in the first place. In essence, they will need to show that you intended when you made the agreement you intended it to be legally enforceable rather than a loan between a couple in a loving and intimate relationship. I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (there should be a button on your screen to do this) and Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
