You've asked this or very similar questions at least twice but the answers are still that it is not unusual for you to be charged for handling a motion to avoid a judicial lien and that the discharge should issue approximately 60 days after the first setting for your 341 meeting unless an objection to discharge is filed.

As long as the case was open it should not be a problem. You should goto town hall and get a copy of the lien - there are usually 2 pages. If the attorney was aware it should have been discussed prior to filing. We handle this all the time as it seems to reoccur in RI. Please feel free to contact us.
Why wouldn't you expect to be charged an additional amount for work that 99% of all bankruptcy clients do not require? And work that could have been avoided altogether if you had filed bankruptcy before a judgment was entered and a lien recorded? Your B9A form from the bankruptcy court clearly sets out the deadlines in your case and the discharge will not be entered until the deadline for creditors to object is 60 days after the 341 meeting. Hope this perspective helps!
The objection to discharge date is 60 days after the 341 meeting. After that deadline has passed, the court can issue a discharge. You need to get your motion to avoid lien filed before the case is closed. It is not unusual to have to pay extra to avoid the lien. It requires extra work on the part of your attorney. You can look at your fee agreement to see what is covered and not covered with the fee you paid your lawyer.
