Legal Answers
Q. Hello, I currently am in Chapter 13 bankruptcy and have been for a year. I would like to stop making payments so the
A: Were the debts you are talking about adding, incurred prior to the filing of your chapter 13 case or were they incurred since the filing? Also, a chapter 13 case can be dismissed voluntarily, by filing a request with the Court. I suggest you talk with a bankruptcy attorney directly to discuss the issues related to your situation in order for you to fully understand the options.
Q. In California, does a Judgement continue to accrue interest after the 10 years time limitation?
A: The responses from my colleagues have covered all the issues. Urge you to contact an attorney for a more detail discussion and analysis of your issues.
Q. Should I file for bankruptcy or settle law suit?
A: Filing bankruptcy requires analysis of more than just one issue. It is important to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to fully understand the issues and options. It incluudes analyzing all debt, income, monthy expenses and assets that you have. Some attorneys offer a no charge initial half hour consultation which may provide good direction for you. Good luck.
