I have a judgment against the originator of my loan and a judgment of foreclosure against me. (2 separate and different judgments but both related to same property). I had filed an amended motion to vacate the foreclosure judgment before bankruptcy. My attorney was aware of both judgments because we discussed them. Initially, the judgments were both listed only on the Statement of Financial Affairs. I had the attorney amend Schedule B. However, I just found out that the attorney made a generic listing lumping both cases together. The originator is defunct and I could not find them anywhere. We have been discharged and the Ch 7 case is closed.
I would like to continue searching so I can collect on the judgment but don't know if the judgments were abandoned by the Trustee.
If you received your Order of Discharge and your bankruptcy case is closed, then the Trustee abandoned the claims/assets in your case. All assets or claims not taken from you or collected for the estate are considered abandoned once you receive your discharge.
The trustee would have filed a notice in his report about the assets being abandoned. Go the the courthouse and bring your cause number. You can pull the documents off the court electronic documents system called pacer.
