Legal Question

Asked on: 10/27/09, 2:09 pm

I am in the process of claiming bankruptcy. It took some time for me to pay off my lawyer but I made my last payment and handed in all of the required paperwork last week, a week after the last payment was made I received a letter from my bank and found out that a bank levy was placed against me by one of my debtors. I have called my lawyer and the soonest he will see me is next week... At this point I am pulling my hair out. I'm a single mother and live paycheck to paycheck. I get paid via direct deposit and get paid next Friday. I need that check to buy groceries and pay other bills. I need that paycheck to survive. I have a meeting with my lawyer to sign my petition next Tuesday. That is 3 days before payday. Is that enough time to have the levy lifted or am I going to be out of a paycheck for awhile. Please let me know what to expect. I'm afraid of the unknown and won't get answers from my lawyer for a week.
