Dear Bankruptcy Attorney:
Attached is another settlement agreement following from my last one that you have answer before for Chapter 13 to which I am the creditor in an adversary Proceeding.
This Agreement, made this the day of September, 2012 by and between Plaintiff and Defendant, whereby the parties have settled any and all issues existing between them upon the following terms and conditions:
Whereas, Plaintiff brought the above captioned adversary proceeding against Defendant, and
Whereas, Defendant has denied the allegations of Plaintiff, and
Whereas, Plaintiff and Defendant have agreed to settle their disputes upon the following terms and conditions:
Wherefore the parties and their attorneys have placed their hands to this SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT the day and year set out above.
Do you see anything that would cause me to not get the total said sum other than the court not approving the settlement? If it is approve and I do not get the money, I can reopen the case right? If it is not approved, then the case continue to where it left off?
