77 Questions Answered

Q. I filed chpt.7 but my automatic stay was removed by the bank, if i convert to a chpt13 do i get a new automatic stay,
A: Not necessarily. This is not an easy question to answer, even with all of the relevant information before the attorney. My assumption is that you do not have an attorney. Your best avenue of relief is to hire one who is extremely familiar with Motion practice and Bankruptcy litigation. Good luck!
Q. I’m divorced and the mortgage is in both names. I have made all the payments since the divorce. He wants his name off t
A: You'll need to refinance the house, as this is the only way to do so - absent selling the house. Banks generally won't perform Mortgage Assumptions, absent a specific Order from a Court. Contact an experienced attorney if you're looking to go the Assumption route... Good luck.
Q. A chpt.7 referee awarded me homestead exemtion after a referee deed was filed on the property. But before the sale of my
A: You - not the Trustee - should be taking the lead on this one. My assumption is that you do not have an attorney at this time, given your reliance upon the Trustee to remedy your situation. Do yourself a favor... hire an attorney who knows exactly how to fix the situation. It will probably cost some money - but, then again, it's worth it if your house is at stake. Good luck with your case!
Q. Bankrupt Rescap failed to file Mortgage Satisfaction for loan pd in 1999, who should we file motion against?
A: There's no Motion to file if there is no actual case... Is there currently litigation involving this property? For what it's worth, this is an extremely subtle, complicated inquiry. Your best bet is to sit down with an attorney and obtain an opinion regarding what can be done, if anything, and how. Good luck.
Q. Is there a status of limitation on foreclosuring on a property
A: No, there is no time limit in relation to how long the foreclosure case is allowed to last for. Consider retaining an attorney, as I have to assume that you do not have one, based upon the nature of your question. Good luck.
Q. After filing, can the trustee ask for my rent lease to be terminated? I stated I will to assume my apartment lease.
A: This rarely occurs... but with this being said, you should really retain an attorney if this is truly important to you - why leave this to chance? Good luck.
Q. can a family’s members bill in there name be claimed on my bankruptcy?
A: If the account is not in your name, you cannot discharge the debt - it isn't yours.
Q. Telecom disconnects service without notice.
A: If the bill was not paid, they have the right to disconnect. Good luck.
Q. My daughter was caught shoplifting, she’s an18 year old college student. What will happen to her? Court date is feb 28
A: It will probably be adjourned in contemplation of subsequent Dismissal. With this being said, your daughter should hopefully learn a valuable lesson from this experience... otherwise, the second time may not turn out so well. Nonetheless, she should hire an attorney or take advantage of a public defender, if one is available for her. Good luck.
