Sure, you can file for bankruptcy protection, although a chapter 13 might be more appropriate. But with an annual income of $84 K, it doesn't make any sense to not consult with your own bankruptcy attorney; it's not like you can't afford it.

I make about $27k & I struggle to pay my monthly bills. So 10/2019 I hired an attorney & filed chapter 7. He said “you really don’t... Read more »
Consult your attorney. You may be able to amend your petition and exempt your return if you have enough unused exemptions to do so. There is no recourse on his failure to advise you unless the return issue would have kept you from filing in the first place.

If you were awarded it in the divorce, the property belongs to you whether she signs the quitclaim or not and the bankruptcy court will enforce the courts order. It is pursuant to a domestic settlement agreement and thus non-dischargeable in bankruptcy.

She both took the money and wrote the NSF check after the judge ruled on our divorce but before the judge signed the decree. My ex told me she is filing for bankruptcy asap. Can she get out of paying a bad... Read more »
It appears from your question that you are a pro se DIY foreclosure "specialist". You need the lawyer you should have hired at the outset: a lawyer who does foreclosures, creditors rights and bankruptcy.
I am not an attorney in Florida but believe your recommended course of action is the same. First, if a company filed bankruptcy, it is public information and therefore accessible. That would be the easiest starting point to determine if the company has filed. Sometimes, companies say they...Read more »
