So my lawyer is MIA. He, neither my paralegal, will return emails or phonecalls. After I paid him well over $1,000 outta pocket. However...
My original court date was Oct 20th. My lawyer forgot to bring my car title, so the trustee adjourned it to Nov 4th. I also signed a re-affirmation agreement on October 20th to keep my car.
Does the 60-day period (where creditors can object and, as far as I understand it, I can change my mind on keeping my car) start on Oct 20th, or November 4th?
Also, after the 60th day, is there usually a one-week or two-week period of time it takes to get the discharge papers? I am a bit behind on my car payment and my car company told me "as long as I am current by the time the account goes back to normal you will be fine".
My lawyer himself, on the day of the 341 meeting...actually told me i should receive my discharge papers two weeks after the 341 meeting...which made no sense to me.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
