    My colleague is correct. You can file a chapter 13 but you are not allowed to discharge any debt in your bankruptcy. What this means for your case will depend on what debts you want to "restructure." I would recommend you consult with an attorney in your area, regarding your options in a chapter 13. Only after a personal consult, will someone be able to tell you specifically what a chapter 13 would mean for you, given your circumstances. Many attorneys offer a free consultation so meet...

    1) Per the Bar rules and Avvo regulations, attorneys are not allowed to solicit clients. You must reach out to them. These are the rules that govern our profession and it would be unwise for us to break them, even if it is what you want. Reach out yourself. 2) If you need help finding an attorney, click on the "find an attorney" tab and search for your self. Look for a personal injury attorney. 3) If you want a referral from trusted source, contact your county's bar association to see...

    You should contact your attorney that handled the prior bankruptcy. If you don't have one then you can contact the trustee as well. If you feel you need further advice then maybe you can contact new bankruptcy attorney for a consult on whats going on in your case.

    These types of fines and court costs are non dischargeable. You should consult with a few bankruptcy attorneys in your area so that they may consult you in more detail how you can deal with them. I.e. would it be better that you file a chapter 13 and pay these penalties in a bankruptcy plan so that you are protected from collection activities. I have also moved this question to the bankruptcy practice area so that you get more responses.

    You need to consult with a criminal lawyer. Don't post anything online, as it is not protected by confidentiality. Find a couple of lawyers in your area and consult with them regarding your case issues. Find the right attorney (relationship, knowledge, cost etc) for you. If you need help finding an attorney, you can search this site or contact the Florida Bar's attorney referral service. Your county's bar association may have an attorney referral program as well.

    You need to consult with a probate attorney in your area. You should have the new will and the trust analyzed carefully to go over your issues and options.

    I don't really see a question in your post. However, your post does miss the issue that will be a hinderance to your claim. It doesn't matter what you told the defendant in your class action suit. The issue that they are bringing up is that when you file for a bankruptcy, you must list all of your assets so that the trustee may determine what rights your creditors have in your bankruptcy case. In this case, it was the potential case that you were pursuing. If you did not list that asset,...

    Based on your question it sounds like your case is discharged but is it still "open" or "closed?" Typically, if the case is still open, you can add the creditor to your schedule F and discharge the debt. However, it gets more complicated when your case is closed. It may not be cost effective to re-open the case just to add a creditor. If you were represented by an attorney in your prior chapter 7, consult with them. If not, you can try consulting with an attorney to see if this is the...

    I agree your shares should be listed in schedule B and you can also list your life insurance policy as well, assuming it has a cash value. If you are going to file pro se, i would recommend finding a local legal aid society that may help you in the process. Good luck.

    You should consult with an attorney to figure what you can afford. It seems like a chapter 13 is difficult for you. Without knowing your income and expenses and looking into other factors, its impossible to give you your best option. If you are unsure about the advice you received, you should consult with multiple attorneys. See what they offer as advice and cost. Most attorneys offer free consults. If the plan is too expensive, then you may want to consider if the vehicle you have and...
