When listing a creditor on a claim in my petition, do I list the original creditor that appears on my credit report and then add notice to the agency that bought the debt from the original creditor? Or do I just list the agency that bought the deb...
Please reconsider doing this yourself. If you don't understand Georgia's exemptions, you could lose personal property and real estate in your bankruptcy that you may have been able to keep. Please consult an attorney. You can use Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" button.See question
Approx 12 months ago my ex and I filed chapter13. We've since divorced, in the divorce he was to be making the chapter 13 payments for the duration. I recently received notice that he filed chapter7 and that I now have to resume the chapter13 paym...
You really need to contact an attorney. The only way he could have filed Chapter 7 is to have severed your Chapter 13 case (so that you each have one) and then either dismissed his or converted his to a Chapter 7. Talk to an attorney now about managing your case. You do NOT want to do this yourself; you may be eligible to convert your case to a Chapter 7, too, but only an experienced attorney can tell you that based on your circumstances.See question
I tried to file bankruptcy but was prevented by someone purchasing a home in my name. This info appeared on my credit report.
Someone else purchasing a home in your name (which is fraud) will not prevent you from filing bankruptcy. That debt will be discharged just like (possibly) all of your other debts. If the person who purchased the home has equity in their home, the trustee may take their home and sell it to pay YOUR debts. You need to see a bankruptcy attorney to get this straightened out.

I filed chapter 13 October of last year (2015). I was in a car accident April of this year (2016). I was awarded $100,000 recently and now its being held up by the bankruptcy courts. My question is can they keep the whole settlement if my debt i...
Your attorney, if you have one, should be able to answer all your questions. If you don't have one, you need to get one. No, the courts cannot keep more than what you have in debts. After your debts are paid, they return the balance to you. And remember, even if you get a $100,000 settlement, you will only get what remains after attorney costs (usually 1/3) and payment of all medical expenses incurred in that accident.See question

Georgia Legal Services Program is sometimes able to arrange for an attorney to represent you pro bono (no fees, except possibly filing fees). Contact them for details. I do not recommend doing it yourself.See question
I am currently in about $6,000 in debt. I have no idea if I should file for bankruptcy or what to do. I do have a car payment, which I am caught up on. I am so behind in credit card debt and it just keeps piling up. I cannot afford to make these p...
Since a good bankruptcy attorney will charge you between $1,000 and $1,500 and your debt is not large (except to you; I know how large it can seem when you can't pay it), you may want to consider contacting a debt counseling service to see if they can work something out for you. Do your research and make sure it's a good organization with a proven track record.See question
I am a surviving spouse of a deceased son whose father died 11 months ago. I believe I am a beneficiary in his fathers' will.
If your husband was a beneficiary, that does not mean you would be a beneficiary in his place. Most wills distribute property by bloodlines, not including spouses. Get a copy from the probate court, if the will has been filed, to see if you are a specific beneficiary, which is possible.See question
Does B21 form need to be filed with a corporate bankruptcy case?
Corporations do not receive a discharge in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and you do NOT want to file your own Chapter 11 bankruptcy, so you need to contact an attorney to help you decide if this is the right option for your company.See question

Tell the trustee (or have your attorney tell the trustee) that you believe the claim is in error. The trustee can object to the claim.See question
My mom is asking me to collect permission slips from my siblings. She says Georgia requires it. I think she crazy or thats a weird law, if so there must be a good reason.
I agree with the other answers. I've never heard of such a law in Georgia, but if your mother has a will, that should have her wishes stated out so that she gets what she wants.See question
