When you go through the bankruptcy process more than one time, there may be additional hearings that you have to attend to ensure that you have the protection of the bankruptcy codes in place. When you have re-filed at least once, there is a motion to extend stay hearing. The purpose of this hearing is to extend the stay on your creditors to prevent them from taking your secured items primarily. You explain to the Judge why you think you will be successful this time around compared to the first time you filed. Most times the Judge will grant the motion and will extend the protection that you deserve under the bankruptcy codes. This hearing, even though it takes a short time, is a crucial hearing and it is important that you make it to the hearing on time or early. It would be wise to make sure you know where you are going before you go. It wouldn’t hurt to take a trip the day before to make sure you know exactly where you need to go. This hearing takes place at the bankruptcy court in Downtown Fort Worth and many clients get confused and go to the Chapter 13 trustee’s office by mistake and find that they are in the wrong place. If you have any concerns or questions about this hearing, contact your attorney right away to get it all straight before the hearing.
