Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
You need to file a motion to convert it is not a form,
a motion has to be made to the bankruptcy court, asking that the case be converted,
Is there a special format that must be followed ?
Ok Thanks. XXXXX enter a Reaffirmation Agreement at the time of conversion, is the lien holder required to accept it at the Ch 13 interest rate ?
it is not required but it is the usual case,
The motion should be available at the bankruptcy court library as well
Thanks. XXXXX file the motion, do I have to submit all the schedules at the same time and re-notice everyone ?
once the motion is approved,
you would then have to submit the required forms,
another option is to let the chapter 13 get dismissed and refile a chapter 7,
this way you have the automatic stay for several more months,
but wouldnt I have to pay the full filing fee to refile ? the conversion fee is only $25 v $300ish
how much stay time would I have after filing the conversion and submitting the reaffirmation ?
ok thank very much. I have another question about original works of art & copyright law. If you want to take it, I'll make it exclusive to you.
you would be better off with an intellectual property expert.
ok thanks again!
Good luck, and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask. \
If I stop making CH 13 payments, will the court auto convert my case to a 7 ?
