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.

      Wish I had found it too before I filed. Would have saved me a lot of grief maybe.

        I have a question for Todd. We received a Motion to Extend the time for Discharge in the mail on Saturday. Our discharge date was 7/1. The date on the document was of course 6/30. Anyway I freaked out and called my lawyer at home and after he insulted me about calling he told me this happened all the time and while he could not assure me it would be okay he thought it would. The motion said they had received some paperwork requested but not all of it but did not mention what specifically. I called the attorney's office today and his secretary said they got an email from the trustee but did not receive what we were sent. She also said she thought they scheduled a hearing on a motion to extend time and the attorney had to be there? A hearing to us we need to provide more paperwork? Are you kidding me? Why can't they just email him and tell him what they need? Our attorney said he even got these motions when they didnt want anything? That doesnt make sense either. What do you think? Panic time again?

          Calm Down Edwards2,

          Trustees are known for extending discharge dates because they are "behind in their own paperwork". And right now they are all buried under with people filing before Oct. deadline and the new laws taking affect.

          Could be something as simple as this. So don't get too upset till ya got something to get upset about. If the Trustee is looking for something in particular he will notify your lawyer and you will know about it.

          Patience is a virture - Panic is the fear of the unknown.

          Hang in there, it's almost over......discharge is close at hand.

          And there is "life after bankruptcy"...............

          Be Patient,

                    The Law of Reopening: Revisited

                    The Law of Reopening: Revisited

                    See >>>
                    http://www.usdoj.gov/ust/press/articles/abi012001.pdf
                    <<<

                    Reopening a closed no-asset consumer bankruptcy case to add a forgotten creditor -- may not be necessary ... Many districts do not reopen cases... it's irrelevant... effectively, in a no-asset Chapter 7 case, any and all dischargeable debts are discharged, whether or not they were listed on the matrix and included in the Schedule F... So, sending them the first page of your petiton and case number and discharge date should suffice...

                            OMG a huge weight was just lifted from my mind when i read this - i know it's old but i just joined this forum recently.
                            my biggest worry with filing has been that i am scared i'm going to leave out a creditor or two because my debts are old and i don't have any paperwork or contact info for some of them... and i thought it would be a disaster if i filed and left some people out by mistake. but if this is true then i can relax about that. whew!
