  • Chapter BK

    Can my attorney reject claims my creditors file (unsecured) and state there is $0 money left in the plan?

    Scott’s Answer

    Your lawyer will do what needs to be done for your case. How would we know anything about the claims or funds in your case?? Your lawyer has that information and that is who can answer your questions.

    Scott’s Answer

  • Should I seek legal action for I feel was wrongful termination but the EEOC couldn't determine was wrong?

    I was injured in a reck then let go due to the injury.

    Scott’s Answer

    Seek legal action for what? What was wrongful or unlawful about the termination, or what do you think was unlawful about it. You actually have to have a viable legal claim and what you "feel" is the law does not matter. See a reputable lawyer who will tell you whether or not you have one.

    Scott’s Answer

    Most likely, if you provide the creditor's lawyer with your case number, filing date and discharge, they will immediately drop the garnishment and see that funds are released. Assuming the debt was discharged, of course. Have you communicated with the lawyer or creditor?

    Scott’s Answer

    You don't HAVE to evict them - you can let them stay. If you want them out, hire a lawyer to start the dispossessory process. Alternatively, you can pay them off to get out.

    Scott’s Answer

    What is your question? No one here has the agreement (most likely, unless they are an ebay seller).

    Paid my car off recently but now they're saying before I get my title I have to pay my charge off after I already filed bankruptcy

    Scott’s Answer

    If you did not pay the entire amount of the lien the vehicle was not paid off. You left out the important facts.

    Scott’s Answer

    That is a rant about the Trustee, but where is the question? Where is your lawyer? What happened in Court since the conversion and many other events would require Court approval or a court order? There are reasons these things happen, and it is not because of a big fraudulent scheme by the Trustee.

    Scott’s Answer

    You don't state a legal issue or question. If you want to transfer to another location, it is an issue for your employer. How is this a legal issue for lawyers?
