Undischarged Bankruptcy

July 22nd, 2009 by Questions

Good afternoon

I have an undischarged bankruptcy from 2006. At the time I filed I was told my surplus payments would be almost $400.00 a month. I paid the first couple of payments and then discovered I was pregnant with my first child. I was sick for 29 weeks straight and it was financially impossible to make those type of payments (I had told them at the beginning that I couldn`t pay that much and the response was `Well, the Superintendent of Bankruptcy says you can`. I`m now a single mom and still have this on my record. I`ve tried to work with the Trustee on making a lower payment as I now have a dependent and a lesser paying job and I don`t qualify for subsidized daycare (nor do I want it because it`s not the taxpayers job to provide my child with daycare). I was told my file was closed, end of story. What are my options? The Trustee is impossible to deal with and my requests go unanswered.

Many thanks!

If your trustee is unwilling to handle the file any more then your options are approach a different trustee (although most trustee’s refuse to get involved unless they were the original trustee) or contact a lawyer. The lawyer is usually the more expensive way to do it, but if your trustee is not interested in helping you resolve the bankruptcy then you may have no choice.
