Usually my questions are 1-2 sentences....you need the facts

Usually my questions are 1-2 sentences....you need the facts and last hearing info with my questions to answer (may need to talk plus have timeline of events/action that will describe better if can send you...will help explain these questions.1) How can Plaintiff get a judicial default when based on a Motion that was not even part of this hearing; I didn't even bring my Motion that countered that to the hearing as it wasn't on the list to be discussed.2) When case was dismissed in 12/2013, did Plaintiff need to go back to bankruptcy Court before re-sueing in 5/2015…seems everything I read on Cases that Federal Court and Trustee are in charge3) In the Motion in Court to Preclude Defendant's In Rem…the same issues brought up in this were ones that I refuted in the original response (4/19/15) to the Motion to Strike (4/7/15). Court above at hearing only took note of 4-7 Plaintiff Motion and as stated DID NOT ALLOW DEFENDANT TO BRING UP ANYTHING…minutes not attached by I got 1 minute of 25 minutes. All issues were quickly discarded by Plaintiff and the Judge citing only cases that agree with their side…Judge allowed nothing else. (those cases are very recent in FL…refute case law in 49 other states and federal court…just like the bs with 5 yr statute limitations going on in FL)4) Also…documents that I go after bankruptcy stated among other things that Plaintiff must be valid creditor…my affirmative resp have evidence that in any jury trial they'd hang Plaintiff5) Last, Judge asked Plaintiff if it was cross-noticed (Plaintiff affirmed) (WHAT DOES THIS MEAN…what action would plaintiff need to take to accomplish) when I kept complaining about where this Motion to Preclude Defendant was basically illegal in these proceedings6) Judge thought this might be contested and he should leave for others…interesting comment…WHY7) Other thoughts helpful on how to contest, what to file?

I filed a case in small claims court in May only to be notified by a lawyer that my debtor had filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last December.

I am in NM I want a bankruptcy atty to walk me through the

I am in NMI want a bankruptcy atty to walk me through the process of deciding if my Sales Tax debts are dis-chargeable. I filed a Chapter 11 in 11/2007 and at the time I had a lot of unfiled and unpaid gross receipts taxes. As part of the Bankruptcy I filed all returns. They were all filed by January 2008. I kept current on all returns and payments going forward.My plan was confirmed in March of 2011.My atty filed a motion to close the Case on May of 2011.I paid something like $ 200,000 to the state of NM over the following 18 months.I filed another Chapter 11 in April of 2014.Question 1.Does the three year rule run from the day the plan was confirmed in March of 2011 or does it run from May of 2011 when the case was closed.Chapter 11 number 2 fell apart, the trustee moved to have it converted to a Chapter 7. I didn't go to creditor's meetings and the Chapter 7 was dismissed in August of 2014.At this point the State of NM is still after me for $ 100,000 in unpaid taxes, which were part of the returns I filed in January 2008. And they are also trying to collect $ 200,000 in penalties and interest.Question 2If I file a new Chapter 11 will I be able to discharge all of the aforementioned debts.Question 3Part of the NM State Constitution says that the State is Forbidden from forgiving debt. Does federal bankruptcy law trump, NM State Constitution.Question 4Any ideas on how to get the state to discharge debt without forcing me to file a chapter 11.
