Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered
Q. Can I get an extention of time to file amended pleadings if I hire an attorney?
A: Nothing is ever guaranteed but generally courts bend over backwards to give foreclosure defendants every opportunity to present a defense. Especially if the defendant is pro-se. So the answer is very probably you can get an extension of time to plead.
Q. How will filing for bankruptcy affect my bank's foreclosure threats?
A: Not much. The lender can ask for relief from the automatic stay in order to proceed, or simply wait for your discharge then proceed.
Q. If I file bankruptcy and have secured loan will they take that vehicle used?
A: The trustee would only take a motor vehicle if there were substantial equity in the vehicle. The cost of administering an asset, including taking possession, storage, expenses of sale and the court time involved in getting a approval for the distribution of the proceeds are usually prohibitive. Usually the trustee will choose to abandon his interest.
