Legal Answers
29 Questions Answered

Q. I'm behind on my mortgage payments due to being laid off. Will I lose my house if I file Chapter 7? Should I do a
A: You can catch up on your missed mortgage payments by filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your lender can no longer proceed with the foreclosure, and you can cure your default.
Q. I'm behind on my mortgage payments due to being laid off. Will I lose my house if I file Chapter 7? Should I do a
A: Filing for bankruptcy when you’re behind on the mortgage creates some risk better not left to the discretion of the lender. Your lender may either demand that you get caught up right away or ask the court for permission to start the foreclosure process. It's wise to talk to an experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss either getting caught up on payments before filing the chapter 7 or to consider a chapter 13 bankruptcy which would allow you to repay arrears over a three or five year period.
Q. I need clarification. My atty filed a bankruptcy appeal and says she's working pro bono and that I am confused.
A: A good attorney will give his or her preliminary assessment of the case, go over fee arrangements, and discuss with the client whether the case makes sense for the attorney-client team. You want a lawyer you feel comfortable with. Someone who responds to you with intelligence and compassion. Regardless of where the problems lie, your case is likely resulting in a poor relationship for both of you. Ask for a referral to someone who may be better equipped to handle your case.
Q. Do I have to pay off CH 13 creditors if I sell my house and have the proceeds from the sale?
A: You must inform your attorney before you list or advertise your property and discuss what you want to do. Selling your property sometimes requires a court order that may take about thirty days to obtain. If the home’s sale can pay off your repayment plan, then you can expect a discharge of your Chapter 13 after the sale.
Q. One of my creditors is arguing that my debt to them shouldn't be discharged. Is there still a chance I might have to
A: The trustee or creditor must file a written objection with the court. You can settle the adversary proceeding before trial. If you go to trial and the judge approves the party's objection, then you will be required to repay the debt. If the judge rules against the objection, then your debt will be discharged, and you will not have to repay it.
Q. I filed chapter 7 two weeks ago and now I have won the lottery. What happens now with my case?
A: If you purchased your ticket before you filed for bankruptcy, technically you should have listed the ticket in your bankruptcy schedules and must turn your winnings over to the trustee, unless you can claim the winnings as exempt. The winnings are proceeds from the ticket that became part of your bankruptcy when you filed. If you bought your ticket after you filed, and you did not use hidden assets to buy the ticket, any winnings are yours to keep.
Q. How long does it take for creditors to take your car during a chapter 7?
A: You may keep certain secured debts such as your car by reaffirming those debts. Reaffirmation agreements can be set aside during the earlier of 60 days after the agreement is filed with the Court or upon the Court’s issuance of an Order of Discharge.
Q. Should I sue a seller for pushing back a legal contract to sell while in bankruptcy?
A: Your recourse depends on the consequences of the failure to close, though since that failure would be a breach of contract, you would be entitled to something.
Q. How do you get title on chap 7 vehicle that payment was not made to bank but car was kept?
A: If you want the title to the car, you can try to work out a deal with the lender. You may get it for less than you owe.
