Under the new Bankruptcy laws you must now wait 8 years before filing another Chapter & or Total Bankruptcy as it is better know. You may be eligible to file if eligible a Chapter 13 to structure repayment to those creditors.


How does surrendering your house in chapter 7 affect your credit report?

If you are surrendering your house anyways, it is usually better for your credit score if you do it through bankruptcy. If your house is foreclosed on before you file bankruptcy, then your credit score is hit by both the foreclosure and the bankruptcy. If you let your house go back through bankruptcy, instead, then your credit score is only hit by a bankruptcy.


Options when payor cannot afford chapter 13 and too soon for chapter 7?

Good question. It is always a good idea to be fully aware of the bankruptcy system and the effect it will have on your life before filing. Filing for bankruptcy is the best remedy for many debt problems. However, there are other courses of action that may be better in certain situations, allowing you to avoid bankruptcy completely. One benefit of hiring a bankruptcy attorney is that doing so might actually help keep you out of bankruptcy court.


Do have to work in order to file a chapter 13?

You must be generating a steady income to file chapter 13 bankruptcy, regardless of whether it is earned income. If you don't currently have income, chapter 7 most likely is the better way to file bankruptcy. There is an excellent book that gives you a substantial perspective on filing chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy: "The New Bankruptcy, will it work for You?", 3rd edition, by Stephen Elias (published in 2009 by Nolo) -- I found it in the Colorado Springs public library at 346.078 E42N (Dewey decimal system).

How to choose the best Bankruptcy Lawyers?

The bankruptcy world can be extremely confusing to someone who has never had to deal with it before, and it is therefore recommended that anyone contemplating bankruptcy retain the best firm of bankruptcy lawyers that they can find.On the whole, the better bankruptcy lawyers are those with years of experience in the field, so anyone contemplating filing for bankruptcy should check how long a particular firm has been in business before retaining them. If a consumer is unsure of what chapter of the Bankruptcy Code he or she wishes to file under, then this is something that can be brought up during an initial consultation with a general firm of bankruptcy attorneys. Those consumers who know what section they would wish to file under, however, should retain bankruptcy attorneys who are specialized in that particular field, whether it is Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or Chapter 11.Most firms of bankruptcy lawyers also offer free initial consultations so a prospective client should be able to obtain advice on whether to file bankruptcy and, if so, which chapter to file it under, for free. There is therefore no need to pay for an initial consultation, and those bankruptcy lawyers who ask for a fee upfront before they will even consult with a potential client are therefore to be avoided.Further factors that should be considered when contemplating which bankruptcy attorneys to retain are what the attorneys’ qualifications are, whether they are members of any particular professional associations and whether they have published any bankruptcy-specific articles in any legal journals. Although a bankruptcy attorney’s involvement in a simple Chapter 7 case may only last a few months, he or she may have to represent a debtor in a complex Chapter 13 or Chapter 11 case for years, and they should therefore be prepared to deal with complicated bankruptcy litigation matters including estate audits.Bankruptcy lawyers should also be friendly, easily accessible and should be available to assist their clients with all bankruptcy-related issues whenever necessary. Filing for bankruptcy is a frightening time for most debtors, and they need a lawyer that they can trust and count on to be on their side.

What if you file chapter 7 will you still owe creditors if you have a corporation?

To the extent of your personal guarantee for the corporate debt, or if both you and the corporation borrowed the money, you will not owe anything if the debts are discharged in your personal chapter 7. If the corporation has any assets, it will be subject to lawsuits and attachments by the creditors. You should discuss the situation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney, as it may be better to wind up the corporation before filing a personal bankruptcy.


What is a Chapter 13 Lawyer?

A Chapter 13 lawyer specializes in a specific type of bankruptcy law known as Chapter 13. When filing for any type of bankruptcy, it is typically necessary to get in touch with a lawyer in order to make sure that the debtor is able to receive the maximum benefit from the proceedings. Generally speaking, it is usually better to work with an attorney who specializes in the specific type of bankruptcy that is being filed for. Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be thought of as a form of debt reorganization. This is opposed to liquidation, in which an individual sells off all of their assets in order to pay of the debts that they can. For individuals who can demonstrate an ability to pay off some or all of there debt, but in a different time frame than the original contract required, this may be a better choice. For those who are hoping to keep their property, such as their home and car, this is typically a better option than Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy are for individuals, not businesses, which typically file for Chapter 11. With Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you first must visit with a credit counselor and give information about all of your debt. A list of monthly expenses is also required. Any money that is left over will be used to pay off your existing debts. Debt to employees, taxes, child support, and so on take the highest priority. Second priority debts are secured debt, like car payments. Unsecured debt, like credit cards, comes last. When you file for Chapter 13, creditors can no longer take legal action against you. The Chapter 13 lawyer will field all calls regarding the debt. If you fail to file for bankruptcy before your home goes into foreclosure, your home can still be compensated. To qualify, the about of debt is limited. Generally, you can not owe more than $900,000 in secured debt and $300,000 in unsecured debt. You must be able to demonstrate that you can repay the debt. Have a Chapter 13 lawyer look over your information to ensure that it is possible for you to handle the payments. If you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to honor the new payment plan, the court may allow you to convert the Chapter 13 bankruptcy into Chapter 7 bankruptcy. At the end of the bankruptcy period, most of your debts will be erased, although child support, alimony, and student loans typically will still need to be repaid.


What are the laws relating to bankruptcy in Texas?

The laws relating to bankruptcy in Texas are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Chapter 7 will completely relieve one of all major debt and allow for one to keep their house and one car. Chapter 13 is better if one fits into and has a steady income as it gives one the breathing room need to help one get out of debt without being completely over taken by their debt.

Who can file chapter 11 bankruptcy in California?

Generally it is reserved for business/corporations, unless fairly special circumstances and conditions are met....and even then, there really isn't any reason to go C-11 as C=13 which is easily done for individuals effectively does the same thing and fits the bill better. BK is Federal Law. The state makes very little difference really. From another independent source defining C-11 Chapter 11 is a chapter of the United States Bankruptcy Code, which permits reorganization under the bankruptcy laws of the United States. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is available to any business, whether organized as a corporation or sole proprietorship, and to individuals, although it is most prominently used by corporate entities. In contrast, Chapter 7 governs the process of a liquidation bankruptcy, while Chapter 13 provides a reorganization process for the majority of private individuals with unsecured debts of less than $336,900.00 and secured debts of less than $1,010,650.00 as of April 1, 2007. And yet, the below from the official US Courts website introducing the laws involving C-11, with link following. Better tell them they don't know what they are talking about too. A case filed under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code is frequently referred to as a "reorganization" bankruptcy. An individual cannot file under chapter 11 or any other chapter if, during the preceding 180 days, a prior bankruptcy petition was dismissed due to the debtor's willful failure to appear before the court or comply with orders of the court, or was voluntarily dismissed after creditors sought relief from the bankruptcy court to recover property upon which they hold liens. 11 U.S.C. §§ 109(g), 362(d)-(e). In addition, no individual may be a debtor under chapter 11 or any chapter of the Bankruptcy Code unless he or she has, within 180 days before filing, received credit counseling from an approved credit counseling agency either in an individual or group briefing. 11 U.S.C. §§ 109, 111. There are exceptions in emergency situations or where the U.S. trustee (or bankruptcy administrator) has determined that there are insufficient approved agencies to provide the required counseling. If a debt management plan is developed during required credit counseling, it must be filed with the court. http://www.uscourts.gov/bankruptcycourts/bankruptcybasics/chapter11.html

How do you withdraw a bankruptcy?

Presuming it's a voluntary bankruptcy of course: The general consences from previous similar questions- Try asking the court clerk for the assigned judge. If a Trustee has been appointed, contact them. Don't appear for the 341 meeting. (Personally I think contacting before or at least appearing and advising the Trustee that you don't want to proceed is better.) If the BK is a chapter 12 or 13, a motion for dismissal is filed with the clerk of the bankruptcy court, all petitioners must agree to the dismissal and sign the petition. If it is a chapter 11 or 7 the motion is filed with the clerk of the bankruptcy court or the clerk of the bankruptcy appellate panel, and a hearing date is set to determine if the bankruptcy is subject to be dismissal. In the majority of cases, a conversion BK cannot be dismissed once it has been docketed. The petitioner does not need an attorney and forms can be obtained from the office of the clerk of the bankruptcy court. Needed information should always be requested from the office of the clerk of the court with jurisdiction.

Bankruptcy Attorneys Can Help You Start Over?

Few people look forward to filing for bankruptcy. This is a truly dramatic decision to make in your financial life. It is never easy, but there are times when it is the best option. Bankruptcy Attorneys can help you start a new future. The global economy has been troubled in recent years, and this has led to a series of layoffs in the U.S. and around the world. People are losing their jobs everywhere, and there are millions that are still unemployed. There comes a time when your finances are in such disarray that it is best to wipe the slate clean. Bankruptcy attorneys can help you decide which filing is best for your situation. A chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy are the two most common bankruptcy types. A chapter 7 filing allows you to wipe the slate clean totally. A chapter 13 is basically a repayment plan that is adjusted to fit your current situation. Legislation in 2005 changed many of the bankruptcy laws, it is important to find bankruptcy attorneys that are experienced with these new laws. The changes in these laws can make a big difference in your case. People do not have as much control over the type of bankruptcy they can file anymore. The court uses a certain calculation to determine your eligibility for filing. You must meet a certain income level before you can qualify for a chapter 7. If you do not, you will be permitted to file the chapter 13 bankruptcy. The new legislation also required filers to undergo some counseling. You must go through this financial counseling six months prior to filing for bankruptcy. Your bankruptcy lawyer can advise you on the different ways to accomplish this. Some classes are available online. There are two main financial counseling sessions that must be completed prior to your final discharge. The first session is prior to filing, and the other session is prior to be discharged. The court wants to be confident that you are ready to make better financial decisions the second go around. You can find bankruptcy attorneys by looking on the internet, talking to family and friends, or a referral service.
