I was sued by Allstate and did not get a chance to go to the court date since I moved to another state and heard about it late. I found out that it was a default judgement and I was required to pay 24k. Since then my license has been suspended and I can only get it back if I start a payment plan. I... Read more »
You should hire another bankruptcy attorney and file again. Not going to court for any reason is a bad plan bc the end result is always the same. You lose. Refill it, make the 341 meeting and get the default discharged.

She has not been living here at home for some time and has been living with her Mother who has convinced her to file for bankruptcy to get rid of her obligations to our debts.

I believe that this question stems from an earlier one about whether you should move money from your bank account to an IRA prior to filing bankruptcy. There is no question that funds held in an IRA are subject to both federal and state exemptions. My point was that the act of converting a...Read more »
No, you shouldn't make any moves like this without first consulting a local bankruptcy attorney. Pre-bankruptcy asset planning is tricky and shouldn't be done without a full understanding of the risks. Certain activities including moving money around can be avoided by the trustee and put you in a...Read more »
The friend has a 5013c nonprofit corporation. It appears to still be active when I searched on business entities on the sos but I'm not sure if the bankruptcy was personal or for the business. Are there implications if I cash the check?

It is doubtful you can do anything to preclude the sale unless you can find someway to purchase it and you would need the Courts permission to do so. It is somewhat unusual that the trustee would let a 200,000 piece of property go for 55k bc there’s another 145,000 that could be used to pay your...Read more »
I own an S Corp, we close the office last fall due to lack or work. We have not been able to get it going again and we owe 8k in cards and around 15k on a loan. If we file chapter 7 does the debt the company owed then comes to me, or is it gone with the failed company? As of right now I dont see... Read more »
Probably not--unless your mom's name is listed on the same debt you owe. This problem can be solved by you giving your mom a quitclaim deed to the property, or by the two of you creating a new deed in your mom's name only. Do NOT try anything without a competent lawyer helping you.
Most of my creditors was paid in the chapter 13 plan except for taxes and my car loan is complete per the NDC account and it has been complete for a couple of months. I was recently dismissed after over 48 months in the plan. Can my car still be reposessed even though it's been paid in full?
