My bankruptcy lawyer filed chapter 13 and I was granted the bankruptcy. But he never told me I had to keep paying my mortgage just the trustee.then I started get letters about my mortgage, so I called my lawyer about the letters and he told me to ignore them they do this all the time then I told him the letter said that I needed to go back into court cuz they were going to overturn it and he told me that he knows he's the one that told me the letter sent me the letters and just to ignore it everything will be fine it was overturned the lawyer went back into court to try to fix this and the judge wouldn't listen to him and gave him perjury for lying to the court and now I am homeless I need help
You said the Trustee reminded you that you had to keep paying your regular mortgage payment, so even if your lawyer didn't tell you which is unlikely, you had actual notice and failed to pay the mortgage. So, I don't see how this is your lawyer's fault. If your case was later dismissed due to non-payment this is also not your lawyer's fault. You should talk to a malpractice lawyer and see what they think of your facts. You will need documentation to back up your claims that your lawyer committed malpractice (not misreprensented you.)
