Common Questions In Chapter 7

I received a Motion for Relief from Stay in the mail. What is this?

You do NOT need to attend the hearing. This motion will be granted because you are in a Chapter 7 case and if you wish to retain the secured property you will either have to make sure the account is current OR you can work out a repayment plan directly with the creditor.

I need an authorization to speak directly to a creditor.

If you would like speak directly with a creditor in your case they cannot do so unless we consent. Once you are represented by counsel the creditors cannot talk to you unless this consent is received in writing. Please click on the form below to access the consent form.

Authorization to Speak Directly with Creditor Form

The United States Trustee has requested additional information from me.

The United States Trustee Program is a component of the Department of Justice that seeks to promote the efficiency and protect the integrity of the Federal bankruptcy system. To further the public interest in the just, speedy and economical resolution of cases filed under the Bankruptcy Code , the Program monitors the conduct of bankruptcy parties and private estate trustees, oversees related administrative functions, and acts to ensure compliance with applicable laws and procedures. It also identifies and helps investigate bankruptcy fraud and abuse in coordination with United States Attorneys , the Federal Bureau of Investigation , and other law enforcement agencies.

Typically, some clients will receive a request to provide the documentation related to their case. If you receive such a notice you will need to provide BOTH our office and the UST’s office a COPY of all requested documents.
