I am sorry to hear about this situation. You state "This went to Vermont Supreme Court." WHAT when to Vermont Supreme Court - you original case before you got judgment, you mean?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Yes, it does. Is there any way you can attach the filing to your reply, or, not?
Thank you for your reply. Can you at least tell me where in the BK the couple is, and/or, how your judgment has specifically been affected by the BK aside from being stayed (paused) from collection?
Hello and I am sorry for the trouble. In short yes, there is some recourse you have to at least get some portion of the lien enforced even through bankruptcy. Wells Fargo is most likely the mortgage holder and has priority secured lien. They may in fact have the right to set aside all other liens and unsecured judgments in the bankruptcy. However, in the bankruptcy you should have been officially notified by the filing party that they were filing for Bankruptcy. It is urgent that you find out where the bankruptcy action is taking place so you can file a claim and have some sort of examination by the bankruptcy trustee. The trustee will have the ability to sort through your matter. To try and find the claim there is a website called "Pacer". This website has all of the Federal Cases listed by state. So if the bankruptcy was someplace in Vermont you could look up the bankruptcy courts in Vermont and then search by name. If you are not sure where the people are you can try and find out by enlisting a search firm on the internet with as much information as you have. I believe that you will be able to find these people and determine what court they are in. Then you must get a hold of the trustee and tell them you were not informed. You are a creditor and should have been informed. So please. Give it a shot. This is doable by you. Good luck, Sean
