Chapter 13 dismissal


My Chapter 13 just got dismmised on January 7, 2008. The reason was the court wanted my last 3 years tax return to be filed by January 6th deadline. I mailed these taxes to the state and fed

early dec 5, 2007. Fed confirmed receipt 1/2/08 but state confirm receipt 1/9. My lawyer moves slow...and my house is about to get foreclosed. What can I do...Help!!

Re: Chapter 13 dismissal

There's something missing here. If you appeared at a Hearing on 1/6 (or shortly thereafter) and told the judge what you've said here, it is unlikely that he would have granted a dismissal of the case for that reason alone.

File again ... and be prepared to file a motion to extent the automatic stay.
