We currently have filed a Chapter 13, but if my husband

We currently have filed a Chapter 13, but if my husband becomes unemployed, can we go to our attorney and request it be converted to a Chapter 7 and give up one of the cars we were originally keeping? Also, does his unemployment matter if fired or quits? And do we get to decide which car we can keep or is that determined by the lawyer/court?

A debtor (a rogue patent attorney my company is suing for

A debtor (a rogue patent attorney my company is suing for fraud) filed a 11th hour ch. 13 petition the night before our fraud trial was set to start.He just filed his final schedule with the bankruptcy court and I have lost count of the number of lies and omissions he has on his finalschedule.For example, he cited that he grossed $140K in 2014 but we have bank statements and his deposition testimony from our fraud lawsuit against him where he confirmed that he actually grossed well over $400K (didn't pay any taxes on that money either).Does every lie count as a single fraud act or would all 30+ of his lies/omissions count as a single act....we are trying to get a sense of how serious this bankruptcy fraud situation might be for him.

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?

I have a business whose primary asset is our software. The market has changed and we're no longer profitable, but deeply in debt. With much trouble, I found a buyer for the business software, but without the liabilities. I'll be filing Chapter 7, but wanted to know if there would be a problem selling the business now so I can live off the money.
