Can the bankruptcy petitioner personally request approval from the court to apply for a mortgage loan while in a chapter 13 to avoid attorney fees?

Yes. The petitioner can contact the bankruptcy trustee that is in charge of his or her BK for the procedure necessary. It is understandable that persons in legal situations would like to avoid attorney fees. It is usually not a good idea, as the end results are often more expensive than if one had obtained legal representation beforehand. (Not looking for business, just stating facts.)

The bankruptcy petitioner retained an attorney as legal counsel and representation, therefore it would be in his or her best interest to follow the advice given. It is possible for a MTD to be dropped if the petitioner can present the court trustee with a filing schedule that qualifies for the type of BK that is in question.

No, an attorney is not needed to file bankruptcy in any state or federal court. However, the petitioner should be completely educated on the state or federal procedures as even what appears to be a "simple" BK can become complexed and costly.

The petitioner submits the repayment schedule/plan to the court and the court decides whether or not it is acceptable. The best option for the petitioner is to retain a qualified bankruptcy attorney rather than self-filing, as the forms, required documentation and so forth can be complicated to say the least. If the petitioner qualifies for the bankruptcy he or she should be aware that they will be placed on a very strict budget, which is one reason so many people fail to complete a chapter 13 BK ("Adjustments of Debts of an Individual With Regular Income").

Yes you will need an attorney to file for bankruptcy and deal with the court. As an individual you will not be able to schedule hearings, etc as necessary to do the bankruptcy.

Call the attorney or company that handled your bankruptcy.

You can contact the office of the bankruptcy attorney who is responsible for filing and managing the bankruptcy case. The bankruptcy court will automatically send the bankruptcy attorney copies of the bankruptcy paperwork. In most situations the bankruptcy attorney or the office paralegals will be able to tell you the date of bankruptcy in person or via telephone. Visit the United States Bankruptcy Court Federal Record Retrieval website. Once at the website, enter your name at the time of filing for bankruptcy, the state where the bankruptcy was filed, and the year you believe the case was filed. Then you will get the full details of your date of the bankruptcy.

No, not as long as they were included in the bankruptcy. You should give their information to your bankruptcy attorney, who will contact the debt collector. If that doesn't work, your attorney will certainly know what to do next.

In order to file for bankruptcy a person will need to hire an attorney or lawyer. Bankruptcy has long term financial consequences for the person so a competent attorney should be hired.

Why aren't you asking your bankruptcy attorney? It depends on the amount and what the award is for. And the details may depend on what bankruptcy court your 13 is in. You may be able to use the money to prepay your 13 plan and get out of bankruptcy. The money would go to you, not the bankruptcy attorney (unless you owe the attorney money). What claim the trustee would have is the issue.
