If it is chapter 7 and has not been discharged then, no. If it is a chapter 13 then the bankruptcy filer would need the permissin of the trustee to make any major financial transactions.
Yes, a person is still bondable. They just have to be able to pay their bond or have a clear background check to be bondable.
If by "you" you mean the debtor who is in a Chapter 13, yes. If the car is subject to a purchase-money loan, it can get complicated, so you should talk to your bankruptcy lawyer.
Bankruptcy is a federal procedure (a few states may have state bankruptcy laws), so the law is the same in every state, except for local forms and procedures). You can still file a "Chapter 20" (7+13).
If a judgment goes in the bankruptcy, it can be removed. The person who the judgment was for, has the right to request that it still be paid. In most Chapter 7 situations, the judge will decide in favor of the debtor.
yes but you still need to talk to a Bankruptcy attorney
yes, just keep your house exempt from the bankruptcy
Yes, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The exact details are irrelevant, it will remain on your credit report and prevent you from refiling for the same length of time either way.
When participating in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, all major financial transactions must be approved by the bankruptcy trustee. One of the factors the trustee will take into consideration is if the transaction is necessary. For instance the purchase of a vehicle for transportation to a place of employment would probably be allowed. The purchasing of a home might not qualify as a neccessity unless it was an issue of health/safety.
Yes. Discrimination against a person for having filed for bankruptcy is prohibited especially for student loan applications.
ask a layer or banker
You cannot be denied a passport for filing bankruptcy.
Yes and no. No you cannot file for two types of bankruptcy at the SAME time. But yes you can file for chapter 7 bankruptcy if you were unable to complete chapter 13, which is very common. This can be done once for any reason, without court approval. However, to switch back, approval of the bankruptcy court is required, and they will rarely allow a debtor to make multiple switches. Note that in switching from Chapter 13 to Chapter 7, much of the debtor's property is now up for grabs to be sold off to pay his or her debts. However, if the debtor cannot make the payments under a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, switching to Chapter 7 may be his or her only option.
They should still pay rent.
You should have no problems filing an amendment to add the creditor.
A charge-off is a tax-related matter and has nothing to do with bankruptcy. The debt is still owed.
Yes, but if you are still under a chapter 13 bk, you would need the court's permission. In any case, whether you would be able to get financing to purchase a home after filing bk- that is a whole other issue.
if your still in chapter 7 you have to get out first but you can file again check the laws in you state on chapter 7. laws has chang.
Yes, but the student loans don't get cancelled: you still have to pay those.
If your bankruptcy was "discharged" in 2000, then yes. Discharged means it is done! If you are still in a chapter 13 bankruptcy, still paying the trustee--then no. If the trustee finds out about the CD, it will cause lot of problems.
Chapter 7 is debt elimination and is the more severe form of bankruptcy. Chapter 13 is where a repayment schedule is drawn up and you still payoff your debts.
Yes, they are two separate legal issues.
Sure! Rent is not a bankruptcy issue.
Believe it or not, the ploy is called a Chapter 20! A so-called "Chapter 20" bankruptcy is the process filing of a "Chapter 7" bankruptcy to discharge unsecured debts, followed by a "Chapter 13" bankruptcy to allow the debtor to catch up on mortgage payments. The 2005 Bankruptcy Reform Act attempts to limit "Chapter 20" bankruptcies by imposing limits on the filing of successive bankruptcies. Under current bankrupcy law a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be filed only once every two years, and three years must pass after the filing of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy before a Chapter 13 filing. Some debtors attempt to circumvent this restriction by filing for Chapter 13 protection while the Chapter 7 petition is still pending. That option is not available in all courts. In a "Chapter 20" bankruptcy, debtors should be aware that missing even one mortgage payment after filing the initial "Chapter 7" petition may cost them their ability to save their home in a subsequent "Chapter 13" filing.
