I meant $5,442 for Trustee's fee from previous inquiry.So, as you know now I have 2 unsecured creditors. Student loan ($7,381) and a CC ($1,025). And also, yes I have 1 Secured Car (the monthly payment, which I am ON-TIME for every month is $576.47). My mortgage arrears is $54,427.74.Now I am confused because I only factored in my Mortgage Arrears into my Plan, and the Trustee's fee.....My TOTAL MONTHLY TAKE-HOME PAY AFTER TAXES IS $6,350. MY WIFE'S IS $1,000 SO TOTAL MONTHLY INCOME IS $7,350. RIGHT NOW, I HAVE MY TOTAL MONTHLY EXPENSES FROM SCHEDULE J AT $6358.69. I WANT TO DO 5 YEAR PLAN.Please help, sir. You are life-saver.

I am doing a Ch. 13. I have 2 secured creditors (main one is my mortgage arrears, $54,427.74; the other one is my car loan which I am making on-time payments for). What relevance, if any, does the fact that my 2 additional creditors (both unsecured) are BOTH LISTED AS BEING CHARGED-OFF??? One of the unsecured creditors is my student loan (amount $7,381) and my other one is a credit one credit card (amount $1,025). Both are charged-off.What relevance does this have that they are charged-off? I still list them in my paperwork etc. correct? Please explain because I am having difficulty understand what you meant last time when you said, "Because your plan payment must pay to your unsecured creditors at least as much as your non-exempt property. So, the higher your non-exempt property, the more you need to pay to unsecured creditors."?As of now, the math I did to calculate my 5 year Plan was based soley on:1. $54,427.74 (my mortgage arrears) = 90%2. $5,987. 52 (trustee) = 10%=$59,875.22and my 5 year plan was = $997.92 (I did $59,875.22 divided by 60 months).Am I doing my Plan wrong?

I have some technical questions regarding a Ch. 13 Modified

I have some technical questions regarding a Ch. 13 Modified Plan that my trustee has an objection to (I am a pro se filer) --Within the Plan in its current form, I have proposed to make adequate protection payments of $30.63/month to TitleMax on a title loan (which I also have made a motion to 'cram down) *until* such time as the trustee begins making those payments out of my plan funds. I proposed these protection payments to ensure that Titlemax does not repossess my vehicle during the time prior to my plan confirmation (i.e., prior to the time the trustee begins paying Titlemax). The trustee objects on the basis that I did not subtract the $30.63/month payments on Schedule J as an expense. Currently, my proposed plan payments are $88/month; subtracting the $30.63/month would make them $57.37/month. I am confused in that I am under the impression that I can stop making the adequate protection payments to TitleMax once my plan is confirmed and my trustee starts paying them....is my understanding correct?...and if it is: If I am to amend Schedule J + my Plan *now* to reflect the current $30.63/month payments to TitleMax....would I then also need to amend Schedule J + my Plan once it is confirmed (as the $30.63 no longer will be an expense after the trustee begins making the payments to TitleMax) ?I have included screenshots of the Trustee's objection as well as the sections of Schedule J and my Modified Plan that are in question.

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.

This is a Chapter 13 question - median debtors.

Hello:This is a Chapter 13 question for above - median debtors. It is a general question. Specifically, why don't you list amounts for vehicles that you are buying on both Schedule J (lines 17a and 17b) AND on the form 122C-2 (lines 13a and 13b)? I am told that such is "double dipping..." Thank you in advance for your assistance...

After filing a 7 for someone, I received a reaffirmation agreement from their car loan lender. What do I do with this -- just have them sign and forward back to the sender?
