I try to contact the lawyer. Excuses. He's not there, he's in court, etc. Paralegal states they're working on it, problems with computer, busy, etc.
Don't know where to begin, but here goes.
If you are paid in full, if you have provided all of the documents to the attorney,
If the attorney acknowledges that the attorney has all he or she needs, your case should be ready to file in about 2 weeks or so,
If your case has been filed, you will have to have to attend the "meeting of creditors: and then after 60 days you should get your discharge in a Chapter 7 case. Chapter 13 cases are another story.See question
I am about to file Chapter 7 with a lawyer and he says that I can't now ask for my wages back once I file. Isn't this the law? This is what I read: A garnishment preference must be returned to you (as opposed to a Chapter 7 Trustee) if it m...
As you asked before, yes you can get back your garnished wages but the problem becomes where the wages are?. Are they with the local sheriff or marshal?; have they been sent to the collection attorney?; are they with the creditor? and each points the finger at the other.See question
I read that when I file Chapter 7, the creditors must refund the money they garnished from my wages. It read, " Within 90 days." Will I receive all of the wages back from when they started garnishing my wages? OR just 90 when I filed?
The wages garnished within 90 days of your filing should be returned to you but it is not such a simple process, unfortunatley.See question

There is a judgment in my case, but no Notice of Entry - the clerk said he didn't know why. He handed me a sheet that says "Entry gives effect to orders and judgments". What does it mean "gives effect"?
In general, the winner of the judgment must mail a copy of the judgment to you and prepare and have filled out and notarized an affidavit of service.
However it is possible for the Court to specify notice is made upon entry by the County Clerk in the "record books" of the judgment.See question
I filed chapter 7 in January of 2013. All the debts I listed were discharged. At the time I was also behind on rent and did not know I could list my landlord as a creditor. The other day I received a letter from a marshal stating that a judgment w...
Yes, you may reopen your case to add the landlord. There is also case law that states that an unlisted creditor in a no asset chapter 7 case is still discharged even if not listed, but you are going to have to convince the creditors attorney.See question

I am in chapter 13 bankruptcy.Court lifted stay order for sale of the property.Now after the sale,bank comes in Housing state court to evict me with A New separate court complaint.In second circuit courts former home owner have possessory rights...
I believe that you are applying a concept of law that does not apply to your case. If the Court lifted the stay to proceed with the sale and IF the property has been sold, the purchaser, whether it be the lender or a 3d party has the legal right to evict you with out further order of the Bankruptcy Court.See question

If the checks are issued to you then it is income. If it is issued to your minor children and they turn it over to you then it is "other income."See question
