Some of the specificities of my questions weren't addressed. I realize a judge can always say she's abusing the system. My first question was can she withdraw her petition for ch 13 and refile and thus prolong the stay?
Online I read qualifications to file Ch 13. There were limits to unsecured debt. Is $1 million outside of her eligibility to file ch. 13? If so, can she simply refile either ch. 7 or 11 and thus prolong the stay?
How does the bankruptcy court determine if our fraud suit is credible? I can't imagine that simply because a fraud suit is in motion, the stay is automatically lifted.
If you could, please review my initial questions and answer them as best you can. The specifics are what I need, not merely a cut and paste answer.
