Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Over 34 years, I have assisted my clients with debt problems having filed more than 32000 Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy petitions.
Thanks for your question. Note, like a realtor, a chapter 13 or 7 BK filing does not affect your contractor's license. But like a realtor, you do have to report it to your state licensing board. Also, the payment of attorney fees is between the client and the attorney except that the fee has to be approved by the court as part of the chapter 13 plan. That being said, the attorney will either require that the entire fee be paid upfront, part of it and the balance paid over the life of the plan, or 100 percent in the plan. I wish you well. please rate my answer ok or better so that I am compensated for assisting you.
