If your plan has been confirmed, there should be no effect on your move.
There are, however, some districts in which yearly financial reports are required. If you're in one of those districts, the Ch. 13 trustee may push you to increase plan payments if your monthly living expenses...Read more »
Basically, I am going through a divorce and need to move out. Since buying a condo would be cheaper than renting an apartment, my sister has offered to buy a condo and rent it out to me. Would this be allowed if I am currently in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy (without my spouse) or would they look at the... Read more »
I agree with the prior to answers. The bankruptcy rules and statutes target transactions in which "value", e.g., money's worth, leaves the debtor's estate, not where some benefit is incoming to the estate.
And assuming that you have a 5-year Ch. 13 plan, at the end of...Read more »
I received a discharge date on 5/8/19 on a Chapter 7 no asset. Pro se. The trustee submitted the final accounting report and Judge signed on 12/17/20. I was notified a settlement check went to the trustee. Does that mean they are going to re-open my case again? Can I hire an attorney to get my... Read more »
Hired in 2005, I moved to a virtual role during 2012. Following a bankruptcy discharge in 2018 I was notified of a municipal income tax deficiency owed to my residence city. Upon receipt of the notification I worked with the tax authority to attempt to reconcile. This included providing copies of... Read more »
Apparently, assets were collected by your Chapter 7 Trustee, or property was sold in your case, Were you aware of this during the case?

I am being sued by a creditor and more are coming. I was advised to contact the plaintiff's attorney directly and request a hardship dismissal.

The logistics of getting a BR Order with the Trustee transferring Title will be difficult. Once the property is abandoned to the Debtor, he may be able to sign the Title. This assumes the Debtor listed the vehicle in his Petition. It will usually take two years for the BR Case to Close. If...Read more »
I'm a first time homeowner that purchased my home in 1998. I have been living in my home for almost twenty three years. Due to economic hardship, I had to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2010. It has been discharged and no longer showing on my credit report. My question is, what are my rights... Read more »
Well, I hate to tell you, you don't know quite as much as you think you do. You mentioned that you have the option to reaffirm your loan. You most definitely do not have that option, as it was off the table after your Chapter 7 discharged in 2010. To be quite frank, I never advise clients to...Read more »
Leaving them with no access to any funds and never attempted to go through current employer first for garnishment. Nor accepting a payment plan that was suggested but turned away by plaintiff refusing money unless it was what he set forth reasonable.
I have been in my chapter 13 for over 2 years and realized I was supposed to supply tax returns and refunds to the trustee but I haven’t. I’m not sure what my next step is as I’m afraid to bring it up and have my case dismissed.
I left California due to a bad relationship. I foolishly walked away from all responsibilities as I was extremely stressed and left 30k of outstanding debt. Car loans, cc, etc. Prior to this my credit was perfect! It was the biggest mistake of my life!!
You certainly do have options. Talk to one or more bankruptcy lawyers to explore those options. If you are informed that bankruptcy is one of those options, you can probably make all the debt go away, even the lawsuits.

And the tenant still has an unpaid balance pending. Is the tenant able to break the lease and not have to pay... Read more »
You would want an attorney to review your commercial lease documents and the letter the tenant sent you. I would suggest to start with searching for a real estate lawyer who specializes in forming and reviewing commercial lease agreements. I hope this helps.
