I was in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan that got dismissed

I was in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy plan that got dismissed for missing some payments, now my car owners are asking for payments for every month that I was under bankruptcy plus more, which I don't even know where they are coming up with that money or they are going to take my car. First can they legally ask me for all the payments that were missed while my car was under bankruptcy. Second, can I refile for bankruptcy to save my car since my circumstances have changed and I never got to speak at the last hearing, I don't think I had a very good lawyer, he told me I would just have to start making payments again. Very confused and scared.

1. Bankruptcy - How do I determine the amount creditors are

1. Bankruptcy - How do I determine the amount creditors are getting paid out of the monies I send to the trustee each month? My attorney refuses to give me this information and this info is not on Pacer.2. When I filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy in January 2016, I indicated in my initial application there were five disputed claims. I also discussed these disputed claims with my attorney and provided him with all supporting documentation for this dispute. I just discovered my attorney failed to file any objections regarding these disputed claims. Confirmation hearing is scheduled for Aug 4th. Should I ask the court to reschedule the confirmation hearing so these objections can be filed first?3. Can I circumvent my attorney and file these objections myself? My other bankruptcy attorney friend promised to help me but I do not want to frustrate the court or do anything that will jeopardize getting my plan confirmed.4. Will the Ch 13 trustee or court view me disfavorably if I fire my $4500 attorney at this point?5. Former employer owes me $27850 in unpaid wages. How can I use my Ch 13 case to get this $27850 if this employer ever files for bankruptcy?6.My attorney refuses to give me copies of my file unless I pay him $.50/page for copying fees. That's an additional $385. Is this reasonable?

Case was reopened in 2015, and judgement was for the plaintiff for $49,000 in June 2016.In April 2016, CH filed a new amended Chp. 13 plan which was confirmed May 2016. The Bank was a creditor and still gets certificates of notice. However the bank is not listed in CH amended plan as either a secured or unsecured claim. Is this allowed?? Does CH have to inform trustee of this new judgement of June 2016 for $49,000.

I filed bankruptcy in October 2015. In my bankruptcy I had

I filed bankruptcy in October 2015. In my bankruptcy I had my house that had 2 mortgages and my car. I am expecting to come into some money. At one point my mortgage offered me a settlement on my house. My second mortgage has agreed that if I pay 4500 then they will release the lien on my mortgage and the my car people are saying I have to speak to my trustee to be about paying it off early. My question is can I be discharged from my bankruptcy early legally if I pay my first and 2nd mortgage off and then pay my car. What is the best course of action to take in order to do this? The money that I am expecting would cover the all costs.

This is a chapter 13 cram down question. The Debtor has a loan against a vehicle which was obtained (the loan) less than 910 days ago. However, it is NOT a purchase money security interest, only a secured debt. Can the Debtor cram this down to pay only the collateral value back through the plan?
