The Changing world and service problems in bankruptcy
Kiel-Chisholm, Scott D. (2010) The Changing world and service problems in bankruptcy. In ALTA Conference 2010, 4 - 7 July 2010, The University of Auckland, Auckland. (Unpublished)
In an age where financial transactions are conducted worldwide and mobility of citizens throughout the world is common, lawyers seeking to serve Bankruptcy Notices and Creditor’s Petitions encounter many problems.
To assist lawyers in overcoming some of the service problems that are arising as a result of this changing world, a number of recent cases are considered that highlight a number of issues, including American Express Australia Limited v Michaels  FMCA 103, Deputy Commissioner of Taxation v Barnes (2008) 70 ATR 776;  FMCA 7, Battenberg v Restom & Ors (2005) 223 ALR 692; upheld by the Full Federal Court in Battenberg v Restrom and Ors (2006) 149 FCR 128 at 133;  FCAFC 20 and Envee Energy Pty Ltd (In Liquidation) v Stockford  FMCA 1426.
While the fact situation of every bankruptcy case will differ, recent decisions may assist lawyers in dealing effectively with bankruptcy matters in these times of transition. Lawyers can facilitate completion of the litigious process within the relevant legislative framework in order to satisfy their responsibility to clients and to the Court by considering this case law.
