I just received a notice of chapter 7 bankruptcy case for my ex spouse for a meeting of creditors and deadlines in the mail regarding my ex.
It says ex's name but wrong address and correct social security #. It shows case number ***** I could not figure out how to find on Pacer.gov and his attorney and the bankruptcy trustee name.
How can I look this up properly? He is remarried and I have been divorced for more that 3 years. His name is ***** ***** my mortgage since I could not qualify to refinance in my name only but in the divorce I have a quit claim deed filed with the county in my name.
Will that save me from having any part of my mortgage fall in the jurisdiction of the bankruptcy or having them tap into my equity? Is there any thing I need to do to protect myself any further from his mess? Will my credit be affected I am 100% current only mortgage.
My home was underwater when he left me but has since increased in value.
I wonder why I was sent these papers. The outside of the envelope says Official Business US Bankruptcy Court Contains Notice of a proceeding in the US Bankruptcy Court.
Is it likely that he will be there that day for the scheduled meeting?
