I agree with Mr. Sterns response. However, I am posting just to advise you that your question really is not a bankruptcy question. It is more of a debt collection question. If you post in the right area of this for him you might get even better feedback.
All the best and good luck collecting!See question

I think you need an estate or probate attorney. Not debt settlement
Best of luck to you!

Why aren't bankruptcy records free? They are public record right? There are a few creditors trying to make me pay for a bill I filed bankruptcy on over 10 years ago. I don't know what to do? Help!
As always, Ms. Bunce is 100% correct. You can get the documents yourself from the bankruptcy court's website for $.10 a page On the New Jersey Court website I believe it is a maximum of three dollars per document. That said, I also think you should email your attorney and threaten them with my practice for not providing you the documents. Not that I would actually consider this "malpractice", but it might get their attention. It's their job to provide you with these documents. That's my "rant" for today. I just can't stand it when attorneys ignore their clients. I'm assuming, of course that you didn't just call twice in 2 days and then throw you're hands up, right? If you've called and given them at least a few days to get back to you, then it's time to get annoyed.
Good luck.See question
I was checking my current credit score and found records of 3 credit cards that I never opened. Not only my score is significantly lowered but the amount of debt is high - which I never had such amount of unpaid credit card balance. I reported ...
It's a hard question to answer because you don't tell us your intentions with regard to you boyfriend/fiancé. If you're saying with him then you should probably work this out between you and maybe file for bankruptcy to obtain relief from the debt. After your bankruptcy case is filed you can stay repairing your credit. Withdraw yourself from the relationship and the answer is different. Probably best to file an FTC complaint and ref the matter for criminal investigation. Then with that evidence and information go to the credit card companies and the reporting agencies to resolve the debt and the reporting issues.

I received a judgment by the small claims court last year and just received a letter that the defendant has filed chapter 7 bankruptcy, am I still entitled to the judgement and can I receive the money.
It depends. If your claim has security you may still collect up to the value of your collateral once the chapter 7 case is closed or you file a motion for and obtain relief from the automatic stay. If your claim is a special kind of debt, such as fraud, willful or malicious injury, or domestic support, you may have a nondischargeable or special priority claim. Those may require the filing of a complaint in the bankruptcy case to prove you have a nondischargeable claim, but if you do your right to collect can be preserved. If the debtor has assets and there is a distribution to creditors expected, the trustee will file a notice of assets and a deadline to file a proof of claim will be included in that notice. if this happens be sure to prepare and file your proof of claim within the time allowed or you will lose your right to a distribution. However, if you have a general unsecured claim and the case is a "no asset" case, you will not be able to collect.
I hope this helps.See question

You should go online and get the phone number for the judge's chambers that is handling the matter. Let them know your predicament and that you are looking for new counsel. Ask them for a new hearjng date to give you a little time to retain someone new. You may also have to submit a letter or other more formal request but the judge's staff should be able to give you assistance with the procedure the judge wants followed.

To obtain additional time to file your schedules of assets and liabilities as well as your statement of financial affairs and creditor matrix, you will need to file a Motiin to Extend Time. You will also need to file an APPLICATION FOR A HEARING on Shortened Time to get a decision prior to your current deadline. Alternatively you can get the filings done to the best of your ability and then, if you find additional items to add you can file amended Schedules.See question

The person that owns the car, and who owes you money for which you and exchange have a lean on the car, is actually responsible for the storage fees. However, if you want to get the car out of the storage then you have to pay the storage fees and try to collect them from the debtor. If the title to the car, on the other hand is already in your name, then you as the owner of the vehicle over the storage fees directly to the storage company. You, of course, may still have a claim for indemnification against the original better. Not a very pretty or simple situation. Depending upon the value and how much it's worth to you it may very well be in your best interest to just let it go. Best of luck!See question
in other words lets say the return date for a reply is due on october 1. does having the item postmarked on that day constitute compliance or does it have to be in their hands? meaning of course then to be safe i would have to mail it several days...
If the deadline is October 1 then it has to be received by October 1. Not put in the mail by October 1. You can FedEx it the night before or have it hand-delivered on the day of. But if you're relying on regular mail, I would say give it at least five days and make it certified. Best of luck!See question

Ms. Bunce is 100% correct and you should contact the US Trustee's Office as well as the office of the trustee assigned to this debtor's case. if they find that you are correct, then they will pursue the debtor for failure to disclose material information and possibly denial of the discharge. However, I caution you to remember that the nether the US Trustee nor the case trustee has any obligation to agree with you or to pursue the matter. They may find your evidence is insufficient or incorrect and that is often the case when a pro se litigant believes they have a "smoking gun." All the best, Karina LucidSee question
