If you reaffirmed the debt during your bankruptcy case, or if you signed new mortgage/note paperwork after your bankruptcy, then they CAN generally come after you for a deficiency balance if the home does not sell for enough to pay off the debt. If you did NOT reaffirm the debt during the bankruptcy case, or did NOT sign any new notes afterwards, then they usually can NOT come after you for any deficiency balance from a foreclosure sale afterwards.

No. Bankruptcy is not a state governed court. All bankruptcies are filed in Federal Courts. Once the Court has made a ruling it will stand. The judgment is valid in All 50 States. Sorry. Yes. Many states have opted out of federal bankruptcy filing, some states allow the petitioner to choose whether they want to file a state or a federal bankruptcy. The best choice obviously is the one that is most advantageous for the petitioner. A chapter 13 can be converted into a chapter 7 if the BK petitioner can show the trustee that they cannot meet the requirements for the original 13 filing, regardless if it is a state or federal filing. Because of the strict exemptions allowed in a Chapter 7, it would be prudent to seek legal counsel before taking any action.
A LOT, but how much your score dives also depends on how high or low your scores were before you filed. Because the FICO scoring model is top-secret, there is no way to know EXACTLY how many points you will lose and because there are so many factors that determine your score.
Yes, but with new bankruptcy laws having been implemented it may prove somewhat difficult. The involved parties will need to prove to the trustee/court that they are unable to meet the obligation. More than likely the trustee will suggest the "13" be modified rather than dismissed. If the BK is dismissed the debtor loses all BK protection and creditors may pursue collection, repossession and lawsuits as the so choose.
If it is done and over, the final paperwork has been signed, then you cannot back out. What is done, is done. Take this opportunity to do better with money from now on and your credit will repair after the 7 years.
It will, at most, briefly delay the process.
Chapter 11 is a type of bankruptcy that can be filed by both businesses and people. Testa Corp filed bankruptcy on October 11, 2013.
Yes, on May 6th, 2009, Bachrach LLC filed chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
It depends on the chapter you filed under. If you filed under Chapter 7, you have to wait 8 years before filing again. If you filed under Chapter 13, you only have to wait four years.
You can have your Chapter 7 claim dismissed as long as the dismissal will not harm your creditors. This is filed with the court in much the same way as when you initially filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy
my chapter 7 bankruptcy discharged Jan 2002 when can i apply again
It depends on the chapter they filed and the financial state of the company, most likey not, that is why the filed for bankruptcy, they have no funds.
A Chapter 7 can be filed again eight (8) years after the discharge. A Chapter 13, can be filed four (4) years after the discharge of a Chapter 7, 11 or 12; and two (2) years after the discharge of a previous Chapter 13.
