    There are ways of dealing with unusual income during the 6 months prior to filing bankruptcy. In a Chapter 13 based on Supreme Court authority you are not absolutely bound by the 6 months prior income. In Fort Lauderdale Chapter 13 cases, we use a "Lanning" clause based on this case to provide that the income that will not be repeated should not be held against you in the plan. Even in a chapter 7, if the case had to be filed now, there is a procedure with a Rebuttal of the Presumption of...

    As a Broward County attorney, I can tell you that there is a possibility the trustee will try to sell your home to an investor if you do not claim the homestead. A full discussion would be needed to evaluate your situation. Your goal to obtain the benefit of the extra $4,000 could work, but you should be aware of the risks.

    The overall issue should involve a consultation with an attorney. How much is the debt? Do you have other debts? How much is in the bank? You might have to account for funds you take out from the bank, but of course you do not want a garnishment.

    I agree that you can file a chapter 13 bankruptcy but cannot obtain a discharge. There is a new mandatory mortgage mediation program that would apply to a Fort Lauderdale bankruptcy. Other than your mortgage, there is a question as to what debts you have since you should not have any new debts (and the mortgage itself would have been discharged without a reaffirmation agreement). If you do not have a mortgage issue, you should discuss with an attorney to see if there is any point to filing...

    As a Broward County bankruptcy attorney, I can tell you that you can file a chapter 13 to pay secured debt even though you cannot obtain a discharge. Has the chapter 7 been completed, has there been a discharge yet? The ability to strip a second mortgage or association lien is lost after obtaining a discharge, (based on local judges' opinions). It may be advisable to file a motion to convert the chapter 7 to a chapter 13. A chapter 13 also permits you to participate in a new mortgage...

    An adversary complaint against IRS can be filed during the bankruptcy case to confirm the debt is discharged. The lien continues to attach against existing property you own at the time of filing the case, but the judgment in the adversary complaint can specify that the IRS lien does not attach against future acquired assets.

    The Chapter 7 filing creates an automatic stay which prevents any efforts to collect your debt outside of bankruptcy. This includes discovery requests and the Fact Information Sheet provided you with the Judgment.

    You can amend the bankruptcy schedules to add a creditor. Provide a copy of the notice of bankruptcy to the creditor. The clerk will charge a $30 filling fee unless you qualified for the filing of the bankruptcy without fee..

    You have discharged the entire mortgage debt on your first mortgage if you did not sign a reaffirmation agreement. However, the bank retains its full lien rights, so you must continue to make your payments on the full mortgage balance or the bank can foreclose.
