Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
Thank you for your answer, that's very helpful. I have one more question. Having dug into the forms that I need to file for the Chapter 7 I can see I'm in over my head and need to get an attorney. I see that I am allowed some time for the additional forms, schedules, etc... (7 days for some, 14 for others) and would have an attorney do those, hopefully in a timely manner... etc...
My immediate question is this: what forms exactly do I need to file for the petition to stay the eviction? Just the petition form that indicates my name, what chapter, etc? I also have completed and have the certificate of counseling that is required prior to filing. As the eviction hearing is on Tuesday I am going to file with the Bankruptcy court tomorrow and want to make sure before I go downtown I have done what I need.
Thank you for your help!
I'm sorry, please clarify for me: I only need to file the petition form tomorrow? I just want to be sure that the petition form is the only one I need to file and all the additional schedules, etc.... can wait until I can get an attorney.
Thank you again!
