Setting the Record Straight

Not being one unable to say they are mistaken, I would like to address this statement in my last post:

"Question: A petition under the Bankruptcy Act of 1898 or the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978 has previously been filed by or against the debtor, his/her spouse, an affiliate of the debtor, …yada, yada, yada …
Answer: NONE

She must have forgot those two other times, eh?"

I've been doing some studying. This particular question on the bankruptcy forms that Heidi filed falls under Local Rule 1015-2. Local rules apply to - well, local areas. They are rules specific to a particular jurisdiction.

This particular rule is asking about Related Cases - is this case related to any other bankruptcy proceedings, either current or within the three years prior to this current filing.

Heidi answered that question as none, which is correct. Her prior bankruptcies do not fit the criteria.

I apologize if any of you followed me down this bunny trail. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa
