It is not a guarantee however, in most cases if this is a first time request it will be approved,
also even if not, and the trustee files a motion to dismiss, that will enable you more time to complete the paperwork,
the motion to dismiss will be issued and you will have 30 more days to cure the missing forms,
and you can file a motion to oppose the dismissal by claiming you filed the paperwork
will this be enough to show the bank that i am still in the process of filing a bankruptcy? to keep the forclosure from happening?
the bank cannot do anything to you,
or stop the modification or sell the house, until the case is dismissed which will take several months,
awesome!! so basically to file an extension should i do it now? i'm only a week into my emergency petition...or should i wait until the 14 days are up? can i file the extension myself? really several months??
I would file it now and ask for a 30 day extension,
you can file it yourself,
r u in california??
what form is it?
I just got a letter in the mail yesterday stating that automatic dismissal will take place unless the following documents are filed or a request for an extension is requested..it states that withing 45 days of filing the petition I need to file a request for an extension explaining why of course and I can request up to a 90 days extension from the date the petition was filed.. is this true?
I would have an attorney help you file these papers so it does not get dismissed,
even with the extension if granted, the paper work should not be too hard to produce,
