I fired my bankruptcy attorney this evening. I need to file something with the court to reflect this, but I can't find substitution for pro se debtor. Can someone please tell me how to file a motion to fire my attorney with he court?
Until your attorney files a motion to withdraw from the case, and the motion is granted, the attorney remains responsible to represent you. Ask the attorney how soon this will happen; it might be a good idea for you to sign the motion. Or if you have another attorney to step in, the new attorney...Read more »
I spoke with my attorney today pertaining to incorrect information in my Schedules that were filed.I provided everything accurately and honestly. Most concerning, my tax return wasn't added. Then my values of property were changed. Removed a creditor that was originally on draft. Said I make... Read more »
While both of you are at fault (your signing them without making sure they were accurate and complete; your attorney neglecting to attach your tax return, and overlooking other mistakes in the schedules), the attorney is probably right by advising you that it's not important. As you have...Read more »

Sounds like that debt was discharged in bankruptcy. You'd want to double check the bankruptcy case. If your debt was listed and bankruptcy was granted, then the debt was discharged. This means you cannot collect on it anymore.
You should contact a Tennessee attorney about collecting the judgment amount from the judgment debtor. If the debtor still has property in Georgia, it may be possible to levy on that property; in which case you would want to also contact an attorney in that state.

You are best advised to discuss these concerns with a Florida bankruptcy lawyer.
If the car is the only asset you have with reachable equity, you're probably safe and can keep the car (whether in a Ch. 7 or 13). If you have other assets that are not protected by the allowed exempt...Read more »
I worked for the job 3/20 to 3/21. I have consulted other law services and been told that I should be a creditor if I have received such paperwork. They directed me to this site for more help.

I'm currently going through a divorce and my husband never paid the taxes and put the house in his brother's name. I'm living in the house and paying the delinquent taxes of but taxes are due again and I can't pay them.

You do not mention if your ex's name is on the mortgage. If the mortgage is in your name and you are making regular payments then the bankruptcy may not affect you. A foreclosure only happens when the mortgage is not being paid. You should speak with a local family law or bankruptcy attorney...Read more »
Assuming that you have no dependent, the Uber income, and the futures trading income are probably not exempt from garnishment. I suggest that you wait to see if they sue you, and at that point again consider bankruptcy protection.

Bad situation, sorry to hear that. You should confirm whether the judgment is against the business only or against you individually as well. You may still be able to file a Motion to Set Aside DEFAULT Judgment, if it was entered by default, if you have excusable neglect and a meritorious defense....Read more »
