Three Ways to Avoid Getting Your Chapter 13 Case Dismissed
Feb. 15, 2023
Sometimes our clients feel so much relief from the bankruptcy filing that they neglect to follow the court ordered rules in a chapter 13 case.
1. Debtors must make their monthly plan payments to the Trustee in a timely manner.
2. If the Debtor has not filed their tax returns by the date of filing, they have 45 days to file the return(s) and submit proof to the Trustee.
3. If the Trustee’s objections are not resolved after continued pre-hearing conferences and the Trustee’s objections are well taken, the case will most likely be dismissed.
The dismissal of a case does not negate the bankruptcy filing on the Debtor’s credit report and does not provide for a discharge of debts.
