Question from SOFA line 7: List the legal actions, proceedings, investigations, arbitrations, mediations, and audits by federal or state agencies in which the debtor was involved in any capacity—within 1 year before filing this case
There are two ways to add a lawsuit to line 7:
If the Plaintiff in the action is also a creditor listed in the Secured Claims, Unsecured Priority Claims or Unsecured Nonpriority Claims sections, the lawsuit can be added while editing that claim by selecting Add Action. When the box Add to SOFA #7 (Lawsuit) is checked, additional fields will populate to enter the case and court information.
Note - adding a lawsuit through this method will also add the action onto line 5 of the SOFA. If you only want the action listed on line 7 of the SOFA, use the 2nd method below.
2. If the lawsuit is not connected with any of the creditors listed in the claims, the lawsuit can be added directly in the Lawsuit section of NextChapter.
