Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
so then they can take this money?
can I file the amendment before the meeting?
Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.
You should bring your ID, your social security card, proof of your current income, and your bank statements that cover the date of filing for the trustee.
These meetings are usually 10minutes long, and the trustee reviews information about the petition and your repayment plan to the court.
The withdrawal shouldn't affect the case, you wouldn't have to disclose it on the petition since it occurred after filing. You can use the funds to fund the chapter 13 plan if you wish.
You can tell this to the trustee at the meeting, but it shouldn't impact the plan calculations.
Let me know if you have any other questions. thanks
Terry I have filed chapter 7 so there is no repayment plan. Another attorney responded and said they will take it to pay creditors????
