I am a pro se Creditor in a Boston chapter 13 bankruptcy and filed an objection and motion to dismiss. A non-evidentiary hearing for both is set less than two weeks from now. What happens in the non-evidentiary hearing, and how can I best prepare for it?
My ex-husband filed for chapter 13 the second time and shortly thereafter filed a spousal support modification action to reduce or eliminate alimony. He will not pay any spousal support after filing bankruptcy, using the pending modification action as the reason. The support order is current and... Read more »
The stay does not pre ENT him from paying maintenance nor is it a legal justification to no pay. In most jurisdictions, however, modification if granted are retroactive to the date of filingvof the motion. You filing s contempt motion for nonpayment May be in order.

Yesterday I posted a question about the above bonds and the "Omnibus Objection to claims filed or asserted by holders" of certain of these GO Bonds. I received an a nasty response from a supposed lawyer, Bruce Alexander Minnick. FYI Mr. Minnick I have spoken with two different bond brokers... Read more »
Please accept my apologies if my professional advice was insufficient or came across as "nasty." I wish you all the best in your effort to collect on the general obligation bonds issues by Puerto Rico.
Anyone with enough money to invest in general obligation bonds issued by the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico should have enough time to call their bond broker and ask them to explain what is happening to all the bondholders.
I finished a Chapter 13 plan (in Massachusetts) 6 months ago. I had claimed approximately $4000 in property taxes under the plan, my down filed a proof of claim for $2600.

If they filed a proof of claim for $2600 and you paid it and completed the plan, then you don’t owe the money. You need to put this back in front of the court and get an order against them for violating the stay.
filing of Ch 7 -not support related & not found in contempt- I didn't list him as a creditor because he wasn't at that time, but I did serve him notice of my filing at the time - and he had already filed the motion for legal fees - but the judge didn't issue ruling for over 2 years -
