I had a pipe busted in my home over the weekend. I filed chapter 13 in March of this year. I'm not sure what step I need to take as far as getting the check and repairing my home.
You will need to contact your bankruptcy attorney asap to amend your schedules to reflect the insurance proceed and also to exempt the proceeds so that the funds can be used to repair the home.
