Send a registered letter to the creditors stating name of Attorney and firm, Mailing address, phone number, case #. Without this info, the creditors have no way of knowing what is truth. It is a common line. They need this info for your records and account. Your attorney should have done this and made this clear to you for your peace of mind. You can call with this info as well. Just telling them Chapt. 7 or you have an attorney isn't enough. If after mailing, immediate with call, and you get calls from a collection agency, they are now At Fault. The dc/supervisor knows better; they have all the necessary info now. The dc will fill out an AR form; attorney referral. This is what the info is for. It gets turned in to the floor supervisor, which in turn is delivered by hand to the CA's {collection agency} Attorney. Your Attorney should have already informed the CA. Your phone # should and will be immedialty blocked/removed from the dialer. You may receive a letter stating they now have this info and what your rights are. In terms of the actual creditor, Im not sure. To many laws and states. Talk to your Attorney.

Money from creditors when you file chapter 13?

When a bankruptcy case is dismissed for missed payments what happens to the money already paid into the plans?

If the court has already confirmed the chapter 13 plan then the money already paid is distributed to the creditors. Basically, since the case was not discharged, you still owe the debt, so you made payments towards the debt while in bankruptcy. If the plan was not yet confirmed by the court, the money is returned to the debtor by the trustee save for a small amount for the trustee's expenses (trustee would ask for this in his motion to dismiss). Money would not be distributed to creditors by the trustee until after the proposed chapter 13 plan is confirmed.

It depends on how the home purchase will impact your creditors. If you you payment will be doing up, then you will have less money paid to your creditors under the Chapter 13 plan. On the other hand, you might get approval if the purchase won't lower the amount of money creditors would receive under the plan.

How much money can you save in a savings account without it being taking by the courts while in a Chapter 13?

In a chapter 13, a debtor keeps all his or her property. If you can save while you are in a chapter 13, there is nothing in the bankruptcy law that specifically prohibits you from doing so. There is no limit to what you can save. However, a chapter 13 requires that you repay all or a portion of what you owe creditors through a repayment plan that must be approved by the court. So if you have enough income to save a lot of money, you may not be paying enough into your plan to satisfy the court (and the judge will be influenced by the trustee and creditors as well). In addition, the amount of property (including savings accounts) that you own at the time you file chapter 13 bankutpcy will affect what you are required to repay in your repayment plan. Specifically, there is a requirement that your chapter 13 repayment plan pay creditors at least as much as they would receive if you had filed a chapter 7 liquidation instead. For example, if you already have a substantial savings account at the time you file chapter 13 of $50,000, you would have to repay your creditors over $50,000 (minus any exemption) through your repayment plan. The amount of the exemption depends on state law or the federal exemptions for cash if your state has not "opted out."

Do trustees always take your stuff in a chapter 7 or does it depend on the creditors who are still wanting stuff?

The trustee if anything, is representing you. He's what you begged the court for in your provide protection and resolve your problems. Creditors file claims for what is owed. Your "stuff" (and as you actually probably never paid for much of it, and have gotten other "stuff" using the money you had already promised to give t them - I'm not sure calling it "yours" is really appropriate), is used to pay what you were supposed to.
