Brooklyn, MI asked in Bankruptcy for Michigan

Q: Filing from chapter 13 to chapter 7 issues.

Currently I am going through a bankruptcy and have filed for chapter 13. A few months ago my attorney said I could take means test and file for chapter 7. After a few weeks they stated I passed the test and could file for chapter 7.

My attorney told me I needed to pay $1925 for fees to transfer to chapter 7. So I sent the money. After a few weeks I didn’t hear anything so I reached out. They told me they ran into some issues and needed more paperwork (paycheck stubs). About a month later I requested the money back since I was never converted. They told me “ we were still working on it please be patient”. Two months later I still haven’t received the money and they are not giving any clear details.

Please help me I don’t know what’s going on or what to do…

A: Schedule an in office appointment with your attorney and have all your questions ready. If they don’t give you an appointment, demand your money back.
