My Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Was Dismissed by Trustee But I Want to Keep My House. – Norma


“Dear Steve,

Due to medical condition requiring several surgeries within last three years, I had to file for Ch 13 bankruptcy but it was dismissed by trustee for not being able to meet the amount of payments the court required. My debts are two mortgages, medical bills, personal loans to family members, a judgement and student loans.

What can I do to keep my home from foreclosure and get out of debt in 5 years?


Dear Norma,

I’m surprised that you didn’t ask for a Chapter 13 plan modification to adjust your monthly payment before letting the case get dismissed. Did you discuss this with your bankruptcy attorney and if you did, what did your bankruptcy attorney say to you about reducing your bankruptcy payment to a level you could sustain?


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
