I was just wondering....I filed a bankruptcy about 2 years ago after a bad business venture with my brother (partnership) went south. The bankruptcy was mostly business-related debt including some personal debt. My brother is now being sued by Revenue Canada for the full amount that we owed (my share was written off in the bankruptcy)...and he is now threatening to take me to court in order to force me to pay my half. I keep trying to explain to him that I am not responsible for it because I wrote if off in the bankruptcy and that I have no control over how Canada Revenue conducts their bill collections but he won't stop. He says papers are in the mail and he will see me in court in about 6 months. I'm confused....if the debt was written off in the bankruptcy then I shouldn't owe it....why do I have to go to court? Why did I bother claiming bankruptcy if I have to pay this debt anyhow? Who do I talk to? What should I do? Thanks for your time.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
