Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I have another question. Please tell me how to pay you again for the information. I need to know, once I the landlord to my chapter 13, what forms or documents do I need to send him. I know a copy of the 13 plan but what else? Also, since bankruptcy is in federal court, can a person retain services of an attorney outside of their state or does it have to be within the residing state?
I am confused on something. Once you have a ch 13 bankruptcy in place and the plan has been confirmed, I was told you can not add new creditors in if they didnt exist before the filing of the initial plan. What happens if someone loses their job or gets hours cut or has their home foreclosed on and ends up having bills that go into collections, etc, does that mean they are tough out of luck and can't put them into the plan?
I don't have an attorney. I am acting as my own because no one wanted to handle my case here. I wish I could find an attorney here that would continue to handle this case. I don't understand what you mean by not sticking to the budget. Can't a case be dismissed if you don't follow the budget or turn in your tax refunds to the court?
Thank you for help.
