BANKRUPTCY -PART 7 ——— Your house is being sold or you are being evicted tomorrow.

Posted by on Mar 11, 2018 in Questions and Answers | 0 comments

It is an emergency. Your house is being sold or you are being evicted tomorrow. You can still file a bankruptcy by filing the papers below. You can stop the foreclosure or eviction by bringing the Notice of Bankruptcy Filing to the foreclosure auctioneer or to the court where the eviction is being handled. It is better to have an attorney, but you are allowed to do this yourself.

Section 2 – Filing Requirements and Procedures

(b) Chapter 7 Individual (Bankruptcy Petition) Documents.
(1) At a minimum, documents (A, B, and C), MUST BE FILED,
when applicable, or the bankruptcy filing will not be accepted.

electronically, this document must be filed separately
from the other documents in this package. …

Required by 11 U.S.C. § 342(b) for Individuals Filing
Bankruptcy (Form 2010) that is available on the court’s
(C) Master Mailing List of Creditors — this is not a form; it is a
