Youre right JT - I wasn’t clear.
The way I’d do it, is take the seller with me (along with the paperwork) to the courthouse and ‘help’ them file. Anyone can file on their own… but I suppose you’re taking a chance on the practicing law business - so, if you’ve got time and money to play it safe, get an attorney or paralegal to help.
The bottom line is - A Chapter 13 emergency filing should ‘STOP’ the sale from being valid thus buying the poster some time.
It’s always a good idea to verify the laws in your state, especially when the advice comes from unknown (or even known) folks on some internet site.
