Chapter 13 Certificate of Compliance & Mtn for Entry of Discharge
Objection filed by Jill Jess: Creditor holds a child support claim. At time of the
filing of this objection, debtor still owes creditor $621.53, of which $275.28 is a
priority claim. The plan proposes to pay creditor's debt outside of the plan.
Creditor objected. Difference between the total of $621.53 and $275.27 = $346.25,
which is a claim that permits the court to dismiss or convert to Ch 7. Debtor has a
long and checkered past that includes in his filed plan and schedules filed herein
understating the amount of the DSO due to Jill Jess.
Note: Claim #1 Jill Jess for $505 - paid in full. Issue w/ direct portion of debt.

Motion for Dismissal for Other pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 1307 - Current @
$1100/mo EP
D owns 10916 Bradshaw St in OPKS. D in violation of declaration of covenants of
Quivira Falls. D relies on association to maintain nearly the entire exterior of her
home. D obligated to pay movant for her portion of water and wastewater services
provided to home. Currently mo assessment on D's residence is $207.03. D has not
paid homes association assessments for nearly two years. Dismissal of this case is
warranted under 11 USC 1307c1 and 6.
Objection: D denies dismissal is appropriate. She is complying with the terms of
her plan. D’s amended Schedule J did not provide to pay the HOA dues. See
Document 24, dated August 26, 2010.
D surrendered this property in her confirmed plan on August 27, 2010. The
property was secured by a lien in favor of two mortgagees, but neither mortgagee
has commenced foreclosure proceedings. D moved out of the property on October
31, 2010 and has not lived there since. The property was vacant until November
30, 2011, when Debtor arranged for a friend to live in the residence in exchange
for paying HOA dues. However, this friend did not make a single payment toward
the HOA dues.
D has filed an adversary action to determine the dischargeability of HOA dues
owed to Quivira for both post-petition pre-discharge and post-petition postdischarge, under 11 U.S.C. §1328(a). The adversary will address Quivira’s
concerns about payment of the HOA dues while not negating all of D’s work
toward completion of her plan and the discharge of her debts.
This Chapter 13 is in month 57. Quivira should not now be able to upset this
almost finished case.

Judge: Dale L. Somers
Russell B. Cloon
Motion for Post-Confirmation Amendment of Plan to Lower Payments to 0
or Minimum Necessary Amount for Remainder of Plan - current @
$1761.17/mo
TTE's Objection:
1. Debtor’s Chapter 13 Plan was confirmed October 25, 2010. Debtor was
confirmed as an above-median debtor with a negative monthly disposable income
and an applicable commitment period of 60 months.
2. Debtor is paying his residential mortgage through the Chapter 13 plan.
Debtor’s residence is in Miami County, Kansas.
3. At the time of the filing of this Objection, 55 months have elapsed since
Debtor filed his petition.
4. Debtor’s monthly ongoing mortgage payment is $1,234.14 per month.
Debtor’s total plan payment is $1,761.17 per month.
5. The idea that the applicable commitment period mandates a plan run 60
months but allows a debtor to pay no plan payment, simply because unsecured
creditors were projected to receive nothing at confirmation, is an absurd result.
“[T]he lack of projected disposable income at the time a plan is confirmed does not
necessarily mean that additional funds with which to satisfy claims will not later
surface.[…] A five-year plan duration thus still makes sense, and may still result in
gains for creditors, even if the debtors have zero or negative disposable income at
the time of plan confirmation.” Pliler v. Stearns, 747 F.3d 260, 265 (4th Cir. 2014).
6. Debtor argues that the decreased plan payments are necessary due to
“modifications and other events occurring during his plan.” Although Debtor has
not filed a motion to surrender, counsel has informed the Trustee that debtor
Somers docket
April 17, 2015, 10:30 a.m.
intends to surrender his residence and therefore remove the mortgage payment
from the plan.
7. At the time Debtor filed his case, the U.S. Trustee’s means test local housing
standards for a mortgage in Miami County, Kansas for a household size of one was
$665 per month. At the time of the filing of this Objection, the standard is $1,012
per month.
8. The Trustee contends that a reduction in the plan payment amount to reflect
one of these figures, or to reflect actual rental expenses, is appropriate; but a
reduction of the plan payment to pay nothing for the remaining months is absurd.
Cases involving above median debtors with negative monthly disposable incomes
that end up paying a dividend to unsecured creditors are common; and reflect the
underlying principle in Chapter 13 to maximize distributions to unsecured
creditors.

Chapter 13 Plan - amended 12/17/14
Motion to Convert Case to Chapter 7
Current @ $1333/mo DP
TTE's objection to amended plan:
1. Debtor filed a Chapter 7 petition on August 13, 2013. Upon Debtor’s Motion, an Order converting
Debtor’s case to a Chapter 13 was entered on April 17, 2014.
2. The Chapter 13 Trustee filed a Motion to Convert the case back to a Chapter 7 on July 3, 2014;
arguing essentially the lack of Plan payments, failure to file multiple years’ income tax returns;
appearance of substantial equity in real property, and domestic support obligation arrears amounted to
an attempt to hinder and delay the collection efforts of creditors. (Doc. 70).
3. That motion is still pending.
4. Debtor has subsequently filed an amended plan and schedules and has addressed some of the tax
issues and the proposed plan does have the appearance of feasibility.
5. However, the amended plan does not address the claim by Debtor’s ex-wife, Kristin Johnson, for
$20,000. (P.O.C. 7).
6. It is unclear from the documents available to the Chapter 13 Trustee whether the claim is in the
nature of a domestic support obligation and therefore nondischargeable or whether the claim is in the
nature of a property settlement and therefore dischargeable under 11 U.S.C. § 1328(a)(2).
7. If the claim is a property settlement and therefore dischargeable in Chapter 13 but not
dischargeable in Chapter 7, the Debtor still appears to have converted to Chapter 13 in an attempt to
hinder and delay collection efforts of his creditors.
8. The Trustee objects to confirmation of Debtor’s amended Chapter 13 plan until Ms. Johnson’s
claim is addressed.
Cont from Feb for objection deadline to run on objection to $20k DSO claim. Obj

Motion for Post-Confirmation Amendment of Plan - current w/ TTE @
$591/mo
On June 1, 2014, D amended plan to surr homestead. Motion granted 7/24/14.
Wells Fargo sent someone to the home to winterize it and they left the back door
open causing damage in the home. The property remains in the D's name making
the D liable real estate prop taxes. Wells Fargo continues to send default notices to
D. D proposes to modify the plan to include specific language about the
surrendering of the prop that protects the D going forward.
Objection:
See attached.

Motion for Post-Confirmation Amendment of Plan to surrender the 2006
Chevy Aveo and lower plan payments to $317.00 per month
TTE's objection: LOF @ $317/mo.
4/2/15 Email from KA to DA: The B auto Sales claim still needs to be addressed re the 07
Saturn – I know they surrendered the 06 Chevrolet Aveo.
The proposed Plan payment of $317/mo is not sufficient. Assuming the B Auto claim ends up gone, I
calculate $400 is needed to keep the Plan at 62-63 months (@ $317/mo Plan run 74 mos).
Claim 5 from KDOR still has an estimated portion, but that’s only for a little over $400.
I know these folks are probably struggling mightily, but I don’t believe we can let a Plan run 75 mos.

TTE's OTC: The plan is not feasible due to estimated tax claims filed by the IRS
and KS Department of Revenue, as well as an unaddressed secured claim filed by
Purchasing Power.
Note: 75 months.
4/14/15 Email from DA: the Trustee got to look at 2012 and 2013 tax returns at her final 341 but
we did not get a copy. And she has yet to provide a copy. The IRS's POC is estimated since they don't
have her returns either. Also, we have to give treatment to Purchasing Power since it appears to be a
PMSI debt that needs to be paid. We've left her messages. I just called and her phone is not accepting
calls. She is wage ordered through USPS so that's good. She's been tough to get in touch with for sure.
Continuances are minimally productive at this point I know, but can we?
Will cont to 5/15. Will file mtd-UD.

Motion to Extend Automatic Stay
Ds filed a petition under Chapter 13 on April 10, 2015.
Ds previously filed a Chapter 13 case on August 23, 2011, and the case was
assigned case number 11-22580. The case was dismissed on July 26, 2013 for lack
of plan payments.
The petition in this case has been filed in good faith as to all creditors. Debtors
believe that the Chapter 13 plan they have submitted will be confirmed and that
they will be able to fully perform under the terms of the plan.
Sec 341 set for 5/4/15 - employer pay.
What has changed?
