Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. I have a personal injury settlement coming soon. I also am about to file bankruptcy. Can they touch my settlement?
A: A bankruptcy trustee in a Chapter 7 case can potentially take any money you are paid in a settlement because you have limited protection of your personal injury settlement money. You should consult with your personal injury attorney and your bankruptcy attorney to see what the best course of action is for you.
Q. I have an unsecured loan I defaulted on. No judgement yet, but letters from attorney. Can I bankrupt out of this?
A: Unsecured lines of credit may be included in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. All collection practices against you are required to stop once you file for bankruptcy. You have an obligation to meet certain income standards to be granted bankruptcy protection. Under the terms of Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be required to liquidate some of your assets to pay some of your debts before being granted a clean financial slate.
Q. Was discharged from Chap.7 in December 2009. How long do I have to answer "yes" to the question about have I ever filed
A: A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can appear on a credit history for ten years. The ten-year clock starts ticking when the bankruptcy was filed. If you’re giving a sworn deposition or applying for a job or loan, you should admit the bankruptcy forever. That being said, after a bankruptcy disappears from your credit history, there should be no way for anyone to find out. So if a court, government agency, employer or lender doesn’t ask that specific question, there’s no reason to volunteer the information. But if they do, you should be honest.
Q. Mortgage discharged in bankruptcy. How long after deed in lieu can I get a loan?
A: In general, the minimum waiting time after a deed in lieu to apply for a federally backed mortgage is two years. There are no mandated waiting times after for private lender. Having a hefty down payment and the funds to cover closing costs might enable you to obtain a new mortgage immediately after a deed in lieu.
Q. I own a house I'm still making monthly mortgage payments on. How will it be affected (if at all) if I file for
A: Chapter 7 bankruptcy doesn't get rid of the mortgage company’s lien on the house. Your discharge only wipes out your personal liability on the mortgage note. If you don’t make your payments, the lender can no longer come after you personally, but it retains the right to take the house back through foreclosure. You still have to continue making mortgage payments if you want to keep your house. Chapter 13, unlike Chapter 7, allows you to make up mortgage arrears and provides other tools to reduce your home mortgage debt.
Q. Tenant is in default for changing flooring/lighting without permission. Tenant filed bankruptcy. Can I evict?
A: The automatic stay which begun when the bankruptcy petition was filed will prevent you from giving the tenant a termination notice. You can proceed with the eviction by asking the federal bankruptcy court to lift the stay. The judge could lift the stay because a lease agreement has no effect on the value of the tenant's estate.
Q. If a company failed to fulfill an order I placed and paid for, then files for bankruptcy, can I still sue them to get my
A: The extent of the financial situation is revealed in the bankruptcy filing and "341" notices. You can contact the attorney or court-appointed trustee to work out an arrangement on how your debt is handled in the bankruptcy.
