All possessions should be valued at 'yard/garage sale' prices. When filing bankruptcy schedules all the information they contain is presumed to be given under oath. If any information is found to be false or misleading, the person(s) can be charged with perjury, contempt of court and a few other very unpleasant things.

Should a friend pay homeowners insurance after filing bankruptcy?

Of course...and by your either need an attorney or need to have the one your using explain exactly what your doing. Bankruptcy doesn't change your obligation to maintain, care for, and ability to lose things you own...just as before it. You probably still own your home, why wouldn't you want to insure it and its contents and all the other things HO Ins covers? And of course, as part of your filing and the court agreeing to protect you from creditors (your insurance company is not a creditor on bills for after the BK filing), you swore to the court you would do all the things needed to protect and maintain all your assets. And of course....the insurance I presume is protection for some period after your filing.....and your bankruptcy is protection ONLY for things from before it. Everything after the filing is YOUR personal and basically unavoidable repsonsibility...and risk of loss.

The Importance of Hiring a Bankruptcy Attorneys?

In today’s sluggish economy, more people than ever are finding it necessary to file for bankruptcy protection. No one plans on ever filing for bankruptcy, but things happen and filing for bankruptcy may be the only way to escape and start over again. In addition to giving you a fresh financial start, filing for bankruptcy can also end the harassing phone calls, reduce your debt obligations considerably, and may prevent banks from foreclosing on your home. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it’s critical that you seek the wisdom and expertise of experienced bankruptcy attorneys. Bankruptcy laws are complex and vary from state to state. Only experienced bankruptcy lawyers can help you to understand the law and what documents need to be filed in court. By hiring qualified bankruptcy lawyers, you can help to ensure that your rights and interests are being protected. If you are thinking about filing for bankruptcy on your own, do not do it. Even though you are strapped for cash, you need to retain bankruptcy lawyers to work on your case. Although you can file for bankruptcy on your own, doing so may be detrimental to your already tenuous financial situation and may make matters worse in the future. Filing the proper paperwork and documents with the bankruptcy court is a tedious process and a serious matter that requires the help of an expert. Only bankruptcy lawyers can help to explain all the subtle nuances of the law and how they will apply to your case. For example, bankruptcy lawyers can explain to you how a particular filing will affect your credit score and what assets may be eligible for exemption should you have to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy and your assets get liquidated. In addition to getting advice from bankruptcy lawyers about your case, it’s also very important to have legal representation at your bankruptcy hearing. The government will have agents of the court called bankruptcy trustees on their side to watch out for their interests. Likewise, you should have representation from bankruptcy attorneys to watch out for yours. Bankruptcy proceedings are usually short due to most of the work being done before hand. Although the hearings are short, they are deceptive in that they are quite complex and can have serious effects on your life for the foreseeable future. Only by hiring qualified and experienced bankruptcy lawyers to handle your case can you make sure that you make the right decisions and come out as unscathed as possible from your bankruptcy hearing.
