So, basically, I have absolutely no recourse whatsoever? Can't I get the case discharged?--something? Is there absolutely NOTHING I can do here? These monies that I will receive, basically, will be completely intercepted and taken? These monies that I am about to receive are being given to me re: illness, due to which I am on disability and have a very hard time covering doctors visits to specialists, medicine, etc.
in addition to raising my daughter.
I read a section on proof of claims in LAW HELP that said it was up to a judge's discretion to re-open case, adn sometimes is do to their inclination that the debtor was untruthful or deceptive--I was neither. This case has been going on since 1994 and when I joined the class action suit, there was never any promises of monies, or that you would qualify for any compensation whatsoever.
I find it hard to believe that they can basically have the right to intercepet any monies that I receive until the day I die, if in fact there is no time limitation!
What if I purchased a house? or a car? (and I can't even do that), but what if I did---those are assests--or my paraent's life insurance? Are you telling me that if the judge chooses to, and most likely will, she can at any time reopen the case for distribution??
And does this mean any of the companies I owed money to, whether they were secured or unsecured.
There has to be something I can do, file, object, contest...something(!?) Why file bankruptcy? Why not just go to court and agree on specific amounts to pay the companies you owe money to--Why file bankruptcy instead of going through debt consolidation? What happens when someone files bankruptcy and 15 yrs. later, after numerous years of education, get hired for a job paying $300,000.00 a year, do they THEN have to go back and repay all the companies listed on their bankruptcy?? Especially since tose same companies have long since written off those consumers' debts???
Please think hard, or consult people on your team, access law books???? I need a recourse / solution.
