Roger : Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
Roger : Did you file chapter 7 or 13?
JACUSTOMER-lr6ens3l- :


Roger : Ok. Are you still making plan payments or have you been dismissed or discharged?
JACUSTOMER-lr6ens3l- :

My bancruptcy was recently discharged

Roger : Ok. You could likely file another chapter 13 and include the mortgage. You must wait 2 years from the first filing to receive a discharge in a second filing.
Roger : If you can pay the arrearage back under a plan and also continue your payments, this could be done.
JACUSTOMER-lr6ens3l- :

ok Can yo

JACUSTOMER-lr6ens3l- :

Ok can you please call meat XXX-XXX-XXXX

Roger : We're not allowed to communicate other than through this site, unfortunately.
JACUSTOMER-lr6ens3l- :

ok so what you are saying i can refile for that amount of $25000.00 and make my payments?

Roger : Well, you can't. Pick and choose debts.
Roger : You'd have to file a new bankruptcy and include all debts including this mortgage and the arrearage.
JACUSTOMER-lr6ens3l- :

I guess I'm confused. Well I have to sell my house?

Roger : No, not if you confirm a new plan that calls for paying this debt and continuing with your mortgage payments.
