Legal Matters & Law Practice
Welcome to Secretarios Judiciales.
Whether its about bankruptcy, divorce, impaired driving convictions,
we have information that applies to your legal matters and areas of law practice.
Can I transfer assets before
A bankruptcy trustee can recover assets transferred within
one year of the bankruptcy filing where the debtor did not
get reasonably equivalent value for the asset, or where
the transfer was made with intent to hinder creditors.
The "look back" period may be even longer under
the law of your state, giving the trustee that same state
law look back period in which to recover assets.

prevent me from filing

you do after being arrested by drinking/driving?
Take the matter seriously. This could follow you for the rest of
your life if you are convicted. The Canadian Police Information
Computer (CPIC) and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation will
maintain records of it for the rest of your life. As I have
described above, you will be fined and your licence will be
suspended. Subsequent convictions could lead to jail and to
longer suspensions. Your insurance rates will go up drastically.
This alone could cost you thousands of dollars. In addition,
your insurance company may deny coverage for certain damages
sustained while you were drinking and driving.
Punitive Damages - When someone injures another person, the injured person can choose to file a civil lawsuit, damages rewarded in civil lawsuits are usually compensatory.

The Secret To Protecting Your Business Assets - Regardless of the type of business you conduct, there is a
significant risk of being sued in our litigious society.

Filing A Mesothelioma Lawsuit - Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos fibers, and this cancer can reduce lifespan to a matter of months from the onset of symptoms.
How do I find a lawyer?
Friends and family members who have been divorced
are often a good source of referrals. When discussing lawyers
with friends or family members, be sure to ask about the lawyer
who represented the other spouse.
