Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
1) Briefly, what was the reason that your Bankruptcy was dismissed?
2) Has your Bankruptcy case already been closed? (Case dismissal and case closing are 2 separate events.)
I did not cooperate.
it says dismissed not closed?
what are the ramifications
Thank you for your response.
Until your case is closed, your creditors - including GMAC - are not allowed to report anything beyond the fact that you filed a Bankruptcy.
This is so, even though you did not include GMAC in your Bankruptcy filing, if you did not sign a re-affirmation agreement with GMAC (which would not be valid if you did, because of the case dismissal).
Once your case is closed, then GMAC can report that the mortgage was paid, because your case will be closed without a discharge.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
