Help...in 2010 we file for bankruptcy (due to medical) and the case was settled and completed the same year.The problem we are having NOW is that during the bankruptcy there was an order avoiding judgement liens on our property for 6 creditors. (I have a copy of that order from the judge). We paid the attorney/attorney group a $250 fee in addition to the initial bankruptcy charge to have the attorneys office record this order in our country clerks office to remove the liens. (I also have a copy of the cancelled check showing we paid this fee and they cashed it). The problem is this.... we just took out a home equity loan as out credit is now excellent and the bank found that 3 of the 6 were still listed on the county tax records as liens dating back to the bankruptcy. The bank lending officer did verify that these liens were the ones that should have been removed from that time period.The attorney/office that was used is no longer in business and it is now 61/2 years after the fact. I need to have the remaining 6 creditor liens released from my property and do not feel that I should have to repay some one else (atty) to do this. What is my legal recourse. How can I go about getting this corrected?? Please I need an answer asap. thank you

Does the bank have that power, due to cross collaterization, or is the employee misinformed?

I am in escrow with a house where the seller is in bankruptcy. She has a bankruptcy attorney. He signed the dismissal yesterday and now it goes before the judge for his approval. I agreed to give her the last payment due the trustee of the court and two house payments which all together total $3,940.00. It will help move things along and I am a cash buyer which helps as well. I am having her sign a notarized promissory note with the details. Am I protected to get my money back after the sale of the house?

I am in chapter 7. IRs said we owed taxes from 2008 to 2012. Those are listed in our bankruptcy. We do not owe for 2013,14,,15 and all returns are in. In the meantime they sent a garnishment to our pay master(retired military ) and garnished anyway $1900. They referred us to a tax advocate name and number so they can give money back k. Should I file a motion w court saying it was seized improperly and it is to be returned or believe the advocate will do their job?
