In Florida if principals of a company who are trying to avoid paying the debts of the company attempt to transfer funds and or open up another company, Florida law allows creditors to bring a third-party action against the officers and the new entity to attempt to recover their money. Many debtors in Florida believe simply by transferring money to another person and or opening a new business will put their assets out of reach of creditors in Florida.
With a proper motion brought before a Florida Court, the Judge will grant joinder. This means the officers who transferred money and the new entity will be brought into a Florida lawsuit brought to collect money from the original debtor.
Just because a business appears t be closed or administratively dissolved our Florida Collection Law Firm and Collection Attorney will investigate to see if there is a possibility to assert a cause of action for transferring the money.
