How Much Debt Do You Get To Eliminate In Bankruptcy?
When you make the decision to file for bankruptcy, it is likely after a long period of several months of struggling to make any payments at all on your debts. The debts could have been caused by a variety of factors, whether self-inflicted or outside your control. When filing for bankruptcy, your main concern is likely to be to ascertain exactly how much of your debt you can actually eliminate after the conclusion of the process. This is due to the fact that every bankruptcy case is unique, and yours might have elements that would affect just how much of your debt the court will discharge you from.
The process of filing for bankruptcy is a very complicated one, and is one in which it is essential to have the counsel of a competent and experienced Glendale CA bankruptcy lawyer. Although it is technically possible for a person to file for bankruptcy ‘pro se’ (by themselves without the services of a lawyer), statistics show that doing so vastly increases the chances of having the case struck out or losing property auctioned off by the bankruptcy trustee.
Chapter 7 bankruptcies are structured in such a way that you will be given complete discharge from your debts at the end of the process. This is in recognition of the fact that they simply cannot pay them off and will not likely be able to do so in the foreseeable future, if things continue as they are. It is designed to give people a fresh start. One of the features that it has which might not be so attractive to you is that there is a possibility that assets could be sold to settle as much of the debt and as many of the creditors as possible.
A bankruptcy trustee is usually assigned by the court to oversee the process, with discretion in matters like sale of assets and order in which creditors are to be paid.
There is no limit to the amount of debt that can be discharged by a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
This is due to the liquidation process where the bankruptcy trustee will attempt to settle as much of your debt as possible, using the proceeds from the sale of your properties. The presumption is that regardless of a person’s debt, if it is obvious that they will never be able to pay it off, there is no point keeping them in it.
When it comes to a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the intent is to completely discharge you from your debts, but rather for people who are still earning some income, but who have too much debt to settle, in the current arrangement. It is designed to help a person to reorganize and restructure their debt so that they will have a realistic chance at settling their debts as soon as possible, usually within a few years. This is usually beneficial for people who have a target they are trying to meet; such as a mortgage, rather than seeking to discharge the entire debt. The court will supervise the bankruptcy and payments and at the end, a decision will be made on what ought to be done.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is one in which you pay off your debts over a period of time. This is done through the instrumentality of a repayment plan drawn up by the court. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you do not have to sell any of your assets in order to fulfill your debt obligations.
There is no minimum requirement for the amount of debt that you can discharge via a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. However, there is maximum amount of debt that you can discharge with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. As of 2012, for unsecured debts, the maximum amount that can be filed is $360,475 while for secured debts, the maximum amount is $1,081,400.
Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the repayment plan would cover the full payment of secured priority debts. But for unsecured debts, you might pay nothing or you would pay a fraction of what you owe. When you are done with the repayment, the remaining debt is dismissed. This means that the creditors cannot come after you to get the remaining amounts owed.
