I have filed for bankruptcy do I have to file an answer with the court and pay filing fee regarding lawsuit or by filling for bankruptcy this will stop the lawsuit.

Bankrutcy lawyer said I had to let the court know but court wants me to file an answer and charge me a filing fee of $ 395. I went to court and judge said the court was also broke and I should pay an installment fee.

The lawsuit is from second mortgage for breach of contract on money lent. – edit

    You do need to file an answer regardless or it will appear the case is uncontested. Assuming you discharged the second mortgage in the bankruptcy, and show proof in your answer, the lawsuit will be halted and you will not be subject to further court fees.

    Hey your lawyer told you to pay the fee, the judge told you to pay the fee, who are we to say different? Too bad it wasn’t included in your original filing, that would have saved you the fee.
