  1. If it is a motion for relief from the stay you need to file an opposition. If it is an adversary proceeding that they have filed, you need to file a motion to dismiss and/or an answer. Please do yourself a big favor and retain experienced bankruptcy counsel to advise you on the intricacies of bankruptcy law and procedure.

    You can beat this. But there are procedural/technical issues beyond a simple posting and response that need to be reviewed.

    I seriously wish you the best.
