This forum can show you basic blueprints but is not a substitute for a lawyer who knows how to use the the tools in the best possible way to win your case.Good luck.See question

Typically there is no obligation whatever to proceed through a collection agency rather than directly to court by an attorney.

Hi, If you wrote some personal information on a couple of your chapter 7 bankruptcy forms that were filed, is there any way to replace those documents with new documents with that information omitted before the trustee meeting? I know you can ame...
Mr. Schwartz is spot on. Such relief would be unusual to say the least and you would likely benefit from engaging the services of experienced bankruptcy counsel to advocate on your behalf for such extraordinary relief. You would need to persuade the court that such relief would be equitable and tin the interests of the creditors and other parties in interest to permit you to redact the personal information you included on the bankruptcy schedules. More typically, the prior bankruptcy pleadings are amended and superseded but not replaced.See question
