Regarding actions of moderators and administrators:

All BKF users agree not to abuse or mistreat moderators or administrators. It is against BKF rules to post any information regarding bans or any other action taken by a member of the moderating or administrative team. If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.


Should you find a thread offensive or out of line, then notify a Mod in a PM so they can evaluate the situation and do the action deemed necessary.

  • Discharged!

    The actual paper came today; It's almost anticlimatic, as we've known it was coming since November (although still had to wait for final auditing, any objections, etc). It's been 60 months almost to the day of filing, 55 months of payments. Closed early due to $13,000 in claims not paid.
    We are now facing foreclosure process, but have been able to save some money, and, most likely another 6 months to prepare to move.
    I'm very grateful for this site and all the people and information available here....thank you all!
    And for those of you still in the process, don't give up, there is life after BK !

                congratulations! I hope to join you real soon. I'm in month 66 right now, have everything paid off but still waiting for the final audit as we are right now in the "pending review" phase. Hoping to get close to a grand refunded too, since the autopays continued for a few months after the plan was paid off. Going to be so happy to get this over with after 5 1/2 years!

                              Originally we wanted to keep the house, paying the mortgage outside the plan (but did not reaffirm) Couldn't manage both payments....got behind, made 3 attempts with different companies for a modification, but no luck (lender was HSBC). House became WAY underwater, 100k+ even now. Attny. advised against short sale or deed in lieu of....we would face foreclosure but if it wasn't going to be our forever home anyway it might be the better plan for us. It was a hard decision to make, esp for my husband and after all the stress of mod attempts. But it allowed us to get through the BK easier, save some money, and plan for our next, smaller house. We haven't rented for almost 30 years so it's a hard concept for us! But I'm almost looking forward to it..luckily we have a friend with a lot of rentals here in town and I think he'll have something for us.Trying to stay positive!
