QUESTIONS

  • Is there a free service for assistance in filing for bankruptcy due to credit card debt?
  • Does your (401K ERISA) remain exempt when filing BK7 if you pledged it as collateral to a private loan you made with someone?
  • Concerning a Short Sale of Real Property; There are 3 liens. The 3rd lien is a voluntary one for the purchase of a home water purification system. In order to sell the property short, the Bank requires that the 3rd lien agree to be released. The lien holder is unreasonable. They ask for the original $4400 + Back Payments, Interest and Penalties which make the release amount about $10,000. Nothing less is acceptable. The Bank may allow 1 or 2 thousand dollars, no more. Can the 3rd lien be eliminated by an administrative action or through bankruptcy?
