I filed bankruptcy about four years ago because I had to

I filed bankruptcy about four years ago because I had to take care of my mother who had Alzheimer's. I kept the house, but I'm finding the bills overwhelming. I'm running two households now because I'm taking care of my brother who has FTD (frontotemporal dementia) and hydrocephalus (water on the brain). If I filed bankruptcy just to get rid of my house that has extreme damage from trees and water, would I get into trouble with the mortgage holder? My mortgage is about $340,000 and the house, on a good day, is worth about $90,000. As I've been told, it's also a famous historical house. Right now I hire people to go in and check on my brother on the days that I can't be there because he lives 125 miles away from me. I'm overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the bills for two households on top of paying home health care workers.

I am listed as a creditor on a CH7, how can i request

Hello, i am listed as a creditor on a CH7, how can i request that an investigation be done. I know the debtor and i know he is hiding over $$ outside of the country from the sale of properties last July. He left he money overseas to hide it from the IRS and also so he could file BK and then transfer the money after the discharge into his wife's account that they opened here in her name alone. They cleared over 100K in cash from the sale of properties and he filed for BK. He is actually actively soliciting peopel to allow him to transfer money into their accounts and then give him the cash, it is a clear fraud. What can i do to get him investigated? Do i need a lawyer to do it, or can i just let the trustee know?

I need help with Bankruptcy/Protecting myself from Fraud/consequences.

I need help with Bankruptcy/Protecting myself from Fraud/consequences.I was a stable homeowner and then became disabled, trying many things to get well. Finally one day I decided to take a leap, and live off my credit cards (based on a spiritual teacher's guidance). I hoped I would recover and gain energy to pay the debt off.A series of misfortunes occurred (my new home burned down while I was in Hawaii, so I stayed in Hawaii....). I focused on writing a book based in that setting and getting my health back.Now, I've maxed out my cards $100,000K of debt, much of it the past 6 months when I moved back to the mainland. I have a serious mental health issues and was unstable (moving from place to place) for nearly 2 years before securing housing/medication.I've paid back friends and family through Paypal using credit cards...large amounts, $2K at a time, sometimes. I've paid rent, groceries, travel, etc. (not jewelry or clothes).I have no real possessions of value and very little money....would like to find an alternative to bankruptcy but barely making it on a disability income (not currently able to work).Do you recommend Bankruptcy Chapter 13 (Colorado)? How do I protect myself from charges of fraud, being asked to pay it back, court stuff, etc? Judgements?I've considered changing my phone # ***** have not given my new mailing address, but is this irresponsible/problematic?What is the best most responsible way to handle this debt?Thank you.

I am in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and I have my house in it. The loan is not in my name, I bought in 2006 under Bond for Deed. The Bank will not talk to me about the loan but they acknowledged I am the owner in the Bankruptcy. I have been trying to get my 1098 from them to no avail. I have one for 2008 from the person that the Loan is in. I have tried and tried to find him. The lawyer told me at time of closing that I could use the interest on my taxes. My Bankruptcy lawyer wrote a letter asking for them to give me the information and to this day I still don't have. What do I need to do to get this information.
