Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered

Q. For Ohio (Dayton, Cincinnati areas). Me ex-wife filed chapter 7 bankruptcy.
A: No, there is no harm in her listing you, it should not "hurt" you in any way, so I don't believe you have any cause of action or injury because of this. She filed on her debts, so it won;t affect you unless she owed you money. If that is the case, seek counsel to try and recoup the money she owes you. Bet of luck to you.
Q. Can I add the creditor (who bought my debt) to my Bankruptcy Chapter 7 if they've filed a lawsuit against me?
A: Absolutely, and you should list all your creditors on the proper Schedules. Error on the side of listing too many than too little; add the lawyers for the creditor, the creditor, the collections place for the creditor, etc.
Q. Is it ever possible to take out a mortgage if you've already filed for a bankruptcy?
A: I agree with the answer above; and just wanted to add that some banks have programs for veterans that allow financing after bankruptcy within two years of your bankruptcy filing.
Q. I paid a paralegal to paperwork for my bankruptcy and she has not done it. Do I have a criminal and civil suit
A: You would have a civil lawsuit you could file; to try and recover your money. Best of luck to you.
Q. I have two credit cards. Do I have to list them both and lose them? Or can I keep one of them?
A: For the most part, a bankruptcy is an "all or nothing" proposition, meaning you have to give up all your credit cards and unsecured debts in exchange for the debts being wiped out.
Q. We filed a Joint Chapter 7 Bankruptcy this year. Case was discharged February 6th, 2018. We included our vehicle in
A: It very likely means that the Trustee abandoned his interest in the vehicle; ie, he is not interested in pursuing it as an asset of your estate. This doesn't mean much for you, you really just need the debt to be discharged, which it should be once your bankruptcy goes through. Best of luck to you.
