Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
in a continuation of my bankruptcy question, Looks like The bank violated the bankruptcy injunction and now sues me in a judicial foreclosure. seeking 100k in fees and interest. and a defiency judgement, easements they didn't have Would it be better to make issue in counter claim in the suit and ask the judge to dismiss the case/penalties? Or to go to the bankruptcy court and I guess reopen the bankruptcy asking them to shut down the other case and fine them in contempt/damages? Or I guess maybe go to bankruptcy court first, if that doesnt work, follow with the case counterclaim?
The case has been discharged 2 years so maybe I can get a home loan now, if I reopen the case does the clock start ticking again and all the credit reporting mechanisms etc.
Clarify that it is a mortgage, secured debt that was discharged.
Is the reopening of a case going to harm my credit more and give me a
later date for discharge or resolution?
I am at 2 years about and may be able to get a home loan soon
This is a related question to the previous. I just paid for the last one.
So if I reopen the bankruptcy to ask the judge to grant damages from the lender, Does the court or judge gain controll of my financial life, And have authority to take another look at current assets
and do a distribution to previous listed creditors in the previous chapter 7
