I recently gave a down payment for a bankruptcy lawyer's services. I still owe a balance. He told me that he would file my case as soon as he received my final payment. I am on disability and having a tough time financially. I could not afford to keep my car anymore (i.e. insurance and repairs). I recently sold my car to a relative at the fair market value and am using the money to live off of.
Today I received a letter from the attorney saying that before filing I cannot transfer the vehicle to a friend or relative. He said that if I did that the trustee could sue the relative for return of the vehicle. I didn't just transfer the title; I actually had to sell the car. Is this going to cause me any problems? I want to file my Chapter 7 case and be done with this horrific experience promptly.
