have you completed your chapter 13 bankruptcy payments or is the bankruptcy ongoing

the bankruptcy is a 5 year plan I'm in my second year -paying 1245 per month.

Thank you for your information.

Eventually either a creditor or the bankruptcy trustee will petition the court to dismiss your chapter 13 bankruptcy for nonpayment. After your chapter 13 bankruptcy is dismissed, the mortgage holder may foreclose on the property
