Q: I was granted an amendment to my bankruptcy. How long do I have to refile the bankruptcy? Is there any time restraints?
My bankruptcy is allowed to be reopened to allow me to add my ex husband as a debtor so I can claim against the sale of our previous marital home which he has sold. Do I need to file this paperwork in a specific time frame? I ask because I am out of money to continue to pay a lawyer to do this.
A: I’m not sure what you mean you were granted an amendment. If they allowed you to amend your petition, then generally it should be done as soon as you can.
Timothy Denison agrees with this answer
A: Your statement needs to be clarified in order for anyone to provide a meaningful answer.
