Bar Application- financial responsibility
« on: July 04, 2011, 11:15:42 AM »
What does the Florida Bar use to determine financial responsibility aside from your credit report?  I had a charge-off a few years back that falls within the 5 year period in the question. It was removed off of my credit report because it was settled.  I was on a payment plan the whole time so I'm not sure if they payments were "late" so to speak so as to trigger the whole financial affidavit or not because i was on time with making my payments under the new payment arrangement. (the debt was charged off while i was on a one year payment plan.  I entered the payment plan before the debt was past due at all.)  If I don't report it, and it has been settled and removed from my credit report, can the Florida Board still find it?

Full disclosure is probably the best policy, but call them and ask what they want you to do.
