Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
How can I hold off the bill collectors until February or March 2010? If a judgment is rendered against me in court, can they attach my unemployment?
In a CH 13, would I pay back less money (total and monthly) if I had a lower paying job than a higher paying job? Why can't I do a CH-13 on unemployment? There are no jobs out there that pay take-home what I am getting unemployment? Would an S Corporation or some other form protect the houses in a CH 7? Sorry for all this, but I feel up against the wall and don't know what to do.
I did talk to a local bankruptcy attorney as you suggested, and didn't get any type of straight answer. He beat around the bush and sounded like a politician on the hot seat. I felt he just wanted me to sign on the dotted line so he could take my money. I will try someone else.
Thank you for your straight answer above.
