    If you have not checked your credit report since you received your discharge you need to. Go to https://www.annualcreditreport.com/index.action and see what is on there. Dispute any inaccurate information. You may have inaccurate negative history dragging down your credit score still.

    You may voluntarily dismiss your Chapter 13 case. I am not going to be repetitive. Did you read the Chapter 13 Plan filed in your case before you signed it? Did anyone explain the terms of the plan to you before it was filed? So you are saying you now want to pay off all of your debts? Call your lawyer who was already paid in full and have him/her explain your case to you.

    You paid an attorney $750 to do what? Did they sue your "friend?" Does not sound like it. Why have you not sued this person? Do you have a signed writing for the loan in which this "friend" agrees to pay you back? If not the statue of limitations on a verbal agreement is two years, signed writing is four years. You could be within the two years still depending upon the circumstances. Did this attorney recommend suing the person in small claims court given the amount of the money loaned, $...

    Upfront fees vary widely. In the Northern District of California there are no look fees like others here have mentioned. Each division has a different set of rules. The Oakland Division for example limits the amount charged upfront to $2,000. In the San Francisco Division you can get all of your fees upfront if the client can pay it. $1,300 is not unreasonable in my opinion.

    There are any number of ways of going about listing the corporation on schedule B as an asset. You could list the shares and place value on them. Many small businesses do not have much value other than the physical assets of the business. If the business was liquidated how much would the physical assets of the business be worth? Valuations of businesses can be very complicated sometimes and you should consult with a local bankruptcy attorney and discuss it at length. If you file a Chapter...

    The Chapter 13 Trustee filed the motion to dismiss for not making the plan payments. That is an easy fix. All he has to do is catch up on the payments or amend the Chapter 13 Plan to adjust the payments and he will then be current. The Chapter 13 Trustee most likely filed the motion to dismiss for delay. It is common for Chapter 13 Trustee's to file this motion when there are unaswered questions or documents are not produced in a timely manner. The motion is pursuant to section 1307 of...

    Paying an attorney to make sure the petition is filled out properly and everything goes smoothly is worth it. Trustee's are not always forgiving when mistakes are made and that could cost you a lot of money. I have an office in Fremont, CA. We have free consultations. If not, there are plenty of other attorneys in the Bay Area that can help you and make sure your case is successful. <a rel="author" href="http://www.westcoastbk.com/ryan-c-wood-bay-area-bankruptcy-attorney.aspx">Ryan C....

    Technically if you have received a discharge there is no stay. And yes, it usually takes the mortgage company some time to actually foreclose on a home after receiving court approval. That said, you can try and get the court or the creditors attorney to agree to an adequate protection payment. An adequate protection payment is a payment to protect the secured creditor, mortgage company, interest in your home. You could agree to an amount of the APO with the creditors attorney or ask the...
