Legal Answers
26 Questions Answered
Q. I filed chapter 13 it was dismissed so I filed 13 again that was dismissed so I filed chapter 7 it was accepted but home
A: This depends greatly on the timing and more specific review of the legal issues involved.

The Chapter 7 Trustee likely chose to "abandon" the trustee's interest in the property due to a lack of equity. When certain documents were filed and a discharge entered, depending on any prior orders in the 2 Chapter 13 cases you filed, that likely allowed the foreclosing plaintiff to complete a sale of the property.

It would be strongly recommended that you review with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to determine if you have any legal rights or options at this time.
Q. What do I file in bankruptcy court or district court to stop a creditor from receiving double payments?
A: The first step is to immediately consult an experienced bankruptcy attorney. You are describing a situation that requires legal action. I would contact the Chapter 13 Trustee to place a hold on distributions and you may need to file a motion or modified plan based on the change in the situation. I can't speak to the specifics of the case without more information or provide an answer as to how it is likely to resolve. It seems it was anticipated that the holding by the supreme court would affect the case so you may need to take action in response to make sure your rights are protected.
Q. What if someone is guilty of non-compliance with multiple civil court orders prior to bankruptcy filing?
A: First, you should consult an experienced bankruptcy attorney. This is a very complicated fact situation and how that interplays with the laws in your state and jurisdiction are important. A good lawyer should also review costs with you and give you experienced advice on likelihood of success, etc. That said, as a "party-in-interest" or "creditor", you may contact the appointed trustee in the case and attend the creditors meeting. You would be better served hiring a lawyer to do this who practices regularly in your area. If this is either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you would have the right to object to the debtor's discharge - 60 days from the creditors meeting. Further, in Chapter 13, you can file a Proof of Claim with the Court and an objection to confirmation of any plan filed. ... Read More
