Recent bankruptcy law questions

Usually my questions are 1-2 need the facts

Usually my questions are 1-2 need the facts and last hearing info with my questions to answer (may need to talk plus have timeline of events/action that will describe better if can send you...will help explain these questions.1) How can Plaintiff get a judicial default when based on a Motion that was not even part of this hearing; I didn't even bring my Motion that countered that to the hearing as it wasn't on the list to be discussed.2) When case was dismissed in 12/2013, did Plaintiff need to go back to bankruptcy Court before re-sueing in 5/2015…seems everything I read on Cases that Federal Court and Trustee are in charge3) In the Motion in Court to Preclude Defendant's In Rem…the same issues brought up in this were ones that I refuted in the original response (4/19/15) to the Motion to Strike (4/7/15). Court above at hearing only took note of 4-7 Plaintiff Motion and as stated DID NOT ALLOW DEFENDANT TO BRING UP ANYTHING…minutes not attached by I got 1 minute of 25 minutes. All issues were quickly discarded by Plaintiff and the Judge citing only cases that agree with their side…Judge allowed nothing else. (those cases are very recent in FL…refute case law in 49 other states and federal court…just like the bs with 5 yr statute limitations going on in FL)4) Also…documents that I go after bankruptcy stated among other things that Plaintiff must be valid creditor…my affirmative resp have evidence that in any jury trial they'd hang Plaintiff5) Last, Judge asked Plaintiff if it was cross-noticed (Plaintiff affirmed) (WHAT DOES THIS MEAN…what action would plaintiff need to take to accomplish) when I kept complaining about where this Motion to Preclude Defendant was basically illegal in these proceedings6) Judge thought this might be contested and he should leave for others…interesting comment…WHY7) Other thoughts helpful on how to contest, what to file?

I just paid off the balance due on my ch 13 plan according

I just paid off the balance due on my ch 13 plan according to the amount that the trustee quoted on the record in court. A Notice of Discharge was filed. I am without an attorney, so pro se. I am preparing to file my affidavit and certificate of financial management.I have an action filed in State court regarding my mortgage and the title to my property. I am prepared to pay off my entire mortgage, but there are issues with the title that I find and have been unable to get any clear answers since 2011. I have not made but a few post petition payments that included a paying in protest letter with each and my intention to file in State court quiet title unless they can provide some valid chain of title. I have kept all $ in a private account until answers are provided by the mortgage company and things are resolved in State court.So, now I come to learn today that the mortgage service has filed a 4100r for collection of $19,400 on post-petition arrears payments. The trustees office tells me that as far as they are concerned, my plan has been completed. And, the bk clerk didn't seem concerned about the 4100r, and told me just to complete the documents to get my bk13 discharged.This affidavit is asking if I paid all required in my payment plan. Have I? According to the trustee, I paid what he said was owed on my plan, he filed a Notice of Discharge. The judge is aware of my action in State court and said on record that the BK court is very "sympathetic" to my problems with the the mortgage company.The mortgage attorneys are telling the state court judge that my plan has been dismissed, and I have corrected them several times that it was not dismissed, but discharged.IF this trustee is now telling me that "as far as we are concerned" you completed your plan, what happens with this 4100r?

I am the debtor in a Chapt-13 petition (60 month proposed

I am the debtor in a Chapt-13 petition (60 month proposed plan). One of the creditors filed a proof of claim (POC) and it is now in current adversary proceeding (AP). During the AP's initial discovery, it has been disclosed that the attorney and his law firm who filed the Proof of Claim, had no legal capacity to have done so for the creditor. (Q1) I understand I can file with the Court an objection to any POC, presumably at any time? (Q2) If the Court agrees the POC is "null and void"...what becomes of the current AP matter? Is it dismissed as no foundation was filed? (Q4) Does it become res judicata for the creditor as to any future claim against me... as they hired/retained wrongly with the attorney? Thanks.

We received a dismissal letter for our chapter 13 bankruptcy, says for failure to file an amended plan. It does give us 2 weeks to file an appeal. Does this mean we did something wrong? OR did our attorney mess up?
