I have a creditor, I am referring to schedule e/f in bankruptcy, if I have a creditor, a collection agency who is suing me. my original debt was for $10,000 and they have added fees and interest and they are suing me for $21,000 my question is should I add them only to part 3 of schedule e /f? Or should I add them to part 2 and part 3 (which is what I did). I have the original debt, which was sold, listed in part 2 already.

I recently received my discharge from my chapter 7 bankruptcy.

I recently received my discharge from my chapter 7 bankruptcy. I reaffirmed my vehicle during the process, but I have a large payment I still have not received anything from the finance company for the reaffirmation is it too late at this point to surrender my vehicle and find a more affordable vehicle. I know I am upside down on the loan to trade it in, but it is still in the bankruptcy process I am curious to know my options at this point. I would like to get into something with a lower note without compromising on getting into anot her vehicle with high mileage to help with the negative equity. I am not sure of my options on this at this point in time.

Filed Chap 7 Bankruptcy and it just got discharged. I have refused to sign reaffirmation agreement with credit union on boat because my husband - WHO HAS NOT FILED BANKRUPTCY - jointly owns the boat and has continued paying and has not missed one payment. Credit Union is saying to me that want to repossess boat (stay was lifted from them) - can they do that and destroy my husband's credit even when he is paying on the loan?

I filed back in 2007 and it has been discharged.

I filed for bankruptcy back in 2007 and it has been discharged. On my credit report, I have a reaffirmation with a car that I kept during my bankruptcy because it was the only means of transportation I had. In 2008, I lost my job and eventually had to voluntarily return the car to the bank. Is there any way I can have the reaffirmation removed from my credit report. I am trying to get a mortgage but the lender said with the reaffirmation on my credit report, it would cut my loan amount in half.
