    Have you considered getting your own appraisal? A "drive by" appraisal is weak evidence of value in court, a certified appraisal might be enough to have the bankruptcy Trustee change his/her approach.

    After the lien on the car, if any, is satisfied, the claim is probably all yours.

    From your recital of facts, you had no obligation to pay support on the date of your filing (I assume that date was after your final pmt of child support in October). The DSO document is going to look very empty.

    The proof of claim protects the interest of the lender, even if the payment is made outside of the plan. In Eastern District of MO, where I practice, only a mortgage loan payment, as a rule, could be made outside the plan, but even such a Creditor would still file a proof of claim.

    Take the "Zero Balance" letter and your related documents to an attorney for review. On Avvo, we simply can't properly advise you without knowing the context of the letter.

    Not at the closing. It will take several months for the bankruptcy Trustee to do the paperwork and distribute the funds.
