Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
1) Did you own the timeshare before you filed your Bankruptcy?
2) Was this a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
3) Where did the final hearing document come from?
If your liability to pay for the timeshare was discharged in your Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you should attend the hearing with a copy of your Bankruptcy papers - to make sure the judge knows that this obligation was discharged in your Bankruptcy.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.Thank you.
You do not have to attend. But it would be a good idea to contact the attorneys who sent you the papers to make sure they understand this was discharged in a Bankruptcy.
If they did not know, you may have to send them a copy of part of your Bankruptcy petition - to show them this was discharged.
Thank you for accepting my answer!
You should send the paperwork via Certified Mail Return Receipt Requested.
