Legal Answers
52 Questions Answered

Q. If a husband and wife own a home with no mortgage,and the husband alone by himself applies for bankruptcy
A: Not enough information. What is the husband's income? What is the wife's income? Can he file a Ch. 13? Could save the house if so.
Q. Is this a pro bono law firm? And if so is there an income limit to get help filing bankruptcy?
A: No limit.
Q. What is the income limit to receive help from this office? For bankruptcy.
A: No limit.
Q. 100 percent net pay taken from bank account right after payday. What can I do?
A: Sounds like a prime candidate for a bankruptcy.
Q. I filed bankruptcy how long can I live in the home without making payments before being foreclosed upon
A: Also depends on how far behind you are in payments.
Q. How long do you have to wait to file bankruptcy again.
A: In addition to what Mr. Phillips said I would add the additional information that it depends whether you are seeking a discharge or whether for example you need to stop a foreclosure or get back a seized vehicle. In those examples you can file a Ch. 13 right away and get caught up on the past due payments (arrearages in bankruptcy speak). You would not get a discharge of other debts but you can keep your house or car if you can get caught up on the overdue payments.
Q. What types of property are you allowed to keep in Chapter 7 bankruptcy?
A: Keep your vehicle if you are current or can get current quickly. Same on your house. Keep thousands of dollars of other stuff.
Q. If I file bankruptcy paperwork in this state, will I be required to show up in court?
A: If you can file in Michigan you will have to appear at one meeting minimum with a bankruptcy trustee. There is no court appearance in most cases.
Q. Do you still have to pay secured creditors after filing for bankruptcy?
A: Yes , if you want to keep the vehicle or real estate.
