Talk with your bankruptcy attorney. Also, make an appointment with a councelor at your local IRS Field Office. Take all information you have received to date from IRS. It is much better to talk to a local agent face-to-face than try to deal with IRS over the phone. Yes, list it. Even if it cannot be discharged, you still want it listed so that the IRS is given notice that you have entered bankruptcy. I would NOT recommend telling the IRS you are going into bankruptcy. If they know you are about to go into bankruptcy, they will file a tax lien (and if you don't already have one, then you don't want one). The court will notify them once you have filed your petition as long as you list them as a creditor.

Unfortunately no. Both private and federal student loans can not be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Yes, they can be discharged. A chapter 13 may not be the best way to go, however. You should consider a chapter 7, if you qualify. Consult a local bankruptcy lawyer.

Whether your car loan is discharged by a bankruptcy or not will depend on your state and the equity in your car. Whether the loan will be discharged or not is called an "exemption".

Not by creditors who agreed to participate in the chapter 13 bankruptcy.

If a debt was listed on a Bankruptcy that you filed and the Bankruptcy went through then that debt is permanently discharged with a Chapter 7.

:A bankruptcy under chapter 7 or 11, or a non-discharged or dismissed chapter 13 bankruptcy generally remains on your credit file for 10 years from the date filed. A discharged chapter 13 bankruptcy generally remains on your credit file for 7 years from the date filed.

If you filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in MI and it is discharged, you can amend whatever document you want at any time. It does not matter whether it is during the process of bankruptcy or after the discharge.

The bankruptcy petitioner can file another chapter 7 8 years after the date of filing of a previous chapter 7.

No. Child support is not discharged in bankruptcy.

User Avatar

You may be referring to the discharge of debts in bankruptcy. Not all debts can be discharged. Most discharged debts are partially discharged in Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 actions. Debts or the portions thereof that are discharged no longer exist at law and creditors no longer can attempt collection. It is a "fresh start". You attorney can advise you as to which debts are likely to be discharged, which ones reorganized, and which debts will likely not be discharged.

The debt should be identified as being in bankruptcy or discharged in bankruptcy. It will remain on the list for 7 years. The bankruptcy will remain on the report for 10 years.

Sure. Just find an apartment that will allow a tenant with a discharged bankruptcy.

The day you are discharged you can buy a car. You need to take proof that you are discharged.

If you included it in your bankruptcy, you're protected by the discharge. If you didn't and you're already discharged from Chapter 7, you may not be protected. I suggest you discuss this with your bankruptcy lawyer.

The amount of time a bankruptcy stays on your credit report after discharge differs between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the Chapter 7 stays on your credit report for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, after discharge, it shows for 7 years on your credit report.

Unless it is a tax debt, none. Discharged debts are not income to the debtor.

User Avatar

No. Unlike some non-bankruptcy situations, debt wiped out in bankruptcy (any chapter) is NOT income to the debtor.

User Avatar

You will know your chapter 13 bankruptcy is over once it is discharged. You will receive paperwork stating this either in person from your lawyer, or through the mail.

There is no reason to repay a loan after a discharged bankruptcy, if you have done so, you can reclaim all your money from the creditor (you'll have to go through court).

User Avatar

The bankruptcy is not discharged. Your debt obligation is discharged. The discharge notice usually is mailed to you about 6 weeks after the 341 meeting. The filing of bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 10 years from the date of filing.

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you would achieve the end ultimately faster, and basically be able to restart your financial life sooner. It is the most common form of bankruptcy and debts would be discharged months after filing the bankruptcy.

No, once a bankruptcy is dismissed it has to be refiled after the time limit has expired. The time limit to refile after a chapter 13 dismissal is two years.
