For a bankruptcy attorney. Let's say a person contracted

For a bankruptcy attorney. Hello, Let's say a person contracted with a business, and the business has filed bankruptcy. The business' bankruptcy attorney contacted the person and notified them that the business will be distributing the remains of its inventory to all affected persons under contract. The person responded to the bankruptcy attorney and stated yes, they would like to receive the inventory items. But then the attorney arranged for direct contact between the bankrupt business and the person. Well, the business owner penned a vitriolic email, attacking the person and stating the person can only pick up the inventory items when the person pays the business owner a certain amount, which is less than $50. (Background: A few years ago the person pointed out numerous contract violations, and in response the business owner "revised" his accounting records and launched a bilious attack. Please assume for the sake of argument that the person is right and the business owner indeed defaulted in several contractual areas, as was done to others as noted in internet postings.) Several questions. First, was it proper for the bankruptcy attorney to put the business in direct contact with the person?

If someone has been using a LLC to funnel patent licensing

If someone has been using a LLC to funnel patent licensing revenues into the LLC bank account, and then files for a personal Chapter 13 bankruptcy....is that person required to disclose the revenue they collected through the LLC they own? In this instance, I have proof of someone who has been using a LLC bank account as a personal spending account where they have been collecting over $800K in patent license revenues from at least back to 2013.

I am 66 still working as an engineering contractor and

I am 66 still working as an engineering contractor and making very good money, however one or both of two events may occur which would leave me only with my wife's and my social security and $800 /mo in two small pensions. Our combined social security is 3600/month. We could pay our secured debt which consists of two cars and a mobile home out of this ok but not the payments on our unsecured debt. The events I mentioned are: at the end of december my contract assignment will be over( i had anticipated 2 more years, but business is down) and or my wife who has cancer has a checkup in december. If her cancer is back it is terminal I might not be able to get another contract job . I will look for work after this assignment ends but the market is down so no guarantees. I have about six month of expenses saved. Should i try to payoff one of my cars? What in general can i keep and what should i do in preparation. Also my zip is 77360. Are there any bankruptcy lawyers in this area?

I am a tenant in an large apartment complex for 8 years. I

Hello,I am a tenant in an large apartment complex for 8 years. I owe them about $900 in water bills. My original deposit was $950 8 years ago. My lease is over Novemeber 30th. I want to move as soon as possible, maybe even Octuber 30th.My lease contract says that for me to terminate the lease I need to give them 30 day notice and then I be responsible for two months lease (or in my case just till end of lease)I filed bankruptcy and the case was closed and bankruptcy (chapter 7) was finalized last week. I never mentioned to my lawyer or to the trustee that I want to move or terminate my lease. my question to you today is can I brake my lease now and not have to pay for next months rent? do I still neeed to give them 30 day notice or can I just tell them I be out in 20 days. I assume they for sure can keep my deposit .Rent is currently 1100, water is about an additional $70. When I originally moved in I was a student and I had a guarantor, but he never signed on renewal leases can they go after him or affect his credit, he was never asked to come back and sign anything since 2008. thanks
