Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
I was looking for the answer, i didnt see it?
1) The Debt Management Certificate (for the 2nd - post-filing - course) should be filed with the Bankruptcy court clerk. Mailing the Certificate is not a dependable method of filing it. You can file the Certificate with the clerk when you go to your hearing.
2) It is perfectly okay to give your tax returns to the trustee at your hearing.
And you should bring a copy to your hearing even though you already faxed it.
So it's perfectly ok to not follow the "7 days to be in complete compliance" letter from the suddenly new trustee new name and new address?
Not having submitted your tax returns less than 7 days before your hearing is not cause to dismiss your case.
okay just so I know is that a part of the law 520 code? his letter was a bit like official
I will file at the court before the meeting so I should go very early then right?
If the tax returns are not submitted by the hearing date, the hearing gets 'continued', the case does not get dismissed.
I can file 'with the court" the form 23 copy and the certificate, right? the copy is dated a few weeks ago.
btw, if I had "gambling winnings" on my TAx from 2 years ago, is that a cause to dismiss?
No - having income from gambling is not a reason to dismiss your case.
ok well thats about it I think
The main requirement for the Debt Management Course is that it must be taken after your Bankruptcy case is filed.
And then you have a few months after your hearing to file it. So, it is good if you file it on the day of your hearing .
Please let me know of there is anything else I can help you with.
Otherwise, please have a pleasant evening!
