The lender is attempting to receive its payments pending the bankruptcy. Do you object to this arrangement? If so, you should respond to the motion. Also, read the emotion to see if there are any other issues that you wish to object to. If you have any objections to them motion, you should file an opposition. If not, simply submit on the requested relief requested by the lender.I hope that helped. Please ask any follow-up questions. Please rate my answer so that I may be credited for my time. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
