Before anyone gets the wrong idea, this is a question in general. I was told last night by somebody in work about a kiwi who worked for us a while ago. He'd left NZ with quite a huge debt, but has since returned with a english wife and kids in tow. He said one of the reasons for leaving was his huge debt, but something in NZ law allows a person to be out of country for 5 years and this debt is wiped clean. Is this possible? Maybe somebody may have this answer. As i say i am just curious. Also is it possible that something similar happens here in the UK?
