I've filed a Chapter 7 case with an Attorney last year, and got discharged in December of last year. The case is still open because I made a buyback agreement with the Trustee to pay off the non-exempt equity for the car in the monthly installments. Well, I have paid my last installment at the beginning of this month, but some 20+ days later, the case is still opened. I know Trustees are pretty busy folks, but I am curious how much longer he may take to distribute payments and close the case, as I am being a bit nervous about having the case open and my house further appreciating in value and possibly exceeding the homestead exemption in several months. I've used the $75,000 exemption from section 704.730 and can still absorb the house appreciating for another $30,000, but that's about it.
