Why did I receive a Motion to Lift Stay and Hearing Notice from my mortgage company?
The mortgage company is claiming that you are behind in making your mortgage payments to them and they are requesting that the bankruptcy protection be removed from your home. You will need to provide proof of those missed payments to our office so that we may respond to them in a timely manner. You will need to send one payment for each month that you have been in bankruptcy. The dates on the checks do not matter. If you skip August’s payment and make September’s payment, it will apply to August. So, if you have been in bankruptcy for nine months, you will need to send proof of nine payments. You often are not required to attend this hearing. Our office will be in contact with you before the hearing to verify the information you have provided to us.
