How do you add something to my bankruptcy that your lawyer forgot to do once the bankruptcy has been disposed of: Some paperwork was submitted to my lawyer that was able to be filed with the original bankruptcy and he did not do it how do I correct this matter

Marvin’s answer: If it was an accidently omitted debt in a no-asset case, the case usually does not have to be reopened to discharge the debt. Anything else would require a consult with a bankruptcy lawyer.

Does a lawyer have the right to refuse to answer my letter and insist on communicating only by phone?: Before I hired my lawyer all our communications were by email. Two months after I hired him he wrote that he wanted to discuss a matter on the phone. I wrote back saying I want to do it by email and gave several reasons why; six weeks have passed since then and he has not answered my letter.

Marvin’s answer: The attorney may want to discuss something sensitive and not want to create a paper trail. E-mail is not hack-proof. That may be why he ignored emails you sent. The only way to find out is to call him.

Marvin’s answer: If you think about it, you will quickly understand that a judgment of one state does not change just because you change states. 2 different systems. Otherwise everyone would move.
