Most likely, yes. One of the biggest effects that filing for bankruptcy has is on your credit. Bankruptcy will stay with your credit for roughly 10 years and because of that your score will decrease, at least initially.

Sadly, yes. What a way to start your life though. Adding that to your resume is not a great idea. Student loans are not usually discharged in bankruptcy. While in bankruptcy, collection efforts will cease until the bankruptcy becomes inactive.

There is no statute of limitations on debt. If you owe it, you always owe it, unless the debt is 'discharged' during a bankruptcy proceeding.

It becomes electrically discharged.

Unfortunately, no. For all co-signed debts, both signers are liable for repayment of the debt. When one party has their obligation discharged by bankruptcy, the remaining debtor becomes 100% liable for repayment of the balance.

Yes. Some judgments can be discharged in bankruptcy. Judgments that have been perfected into property liens cannot as the judgment holder becomes a secured property creditor. Judgments awarded in conjunction with personal injury or property damage caused by negligence are generally not dischargeable.

If the debtor has a lawsuit for damages AGAINST a person, that lawsuit becomes part of the BK and the BK trustee would have the power to settle/go to trial and keep any judgment for distribution to creditors. If the debtor is being sued by ANOTHER person, it would have to be listed in the BK petition, and the cause of action would be discharged (unless it involves debts that are non-dischargeable)

Corporate Bankruptcy Filing is the name given to the process when a business becomes insolvent and unable to meet their debt commitments. This is in contrast to personal bankruptcy where an individual becomes insolvent.

The debt is secured by the property. The debt won't be discharged without the property being used to pay off as much of that debt as possible (called a secured claim..getting the first right to the money from that asset - any excess (that is extra debt) becomes an unsecured claim pais by the sale/seizure/sue of the unsecured assets)....NO IN BK YOU DON'T GET TO JUST DISCHARGE DEBTS AND KEEP ASSETS. BK involves all of your debts and all of your asssets...(not selected ones)...they are given priorities under the law and by the is used to pay the other...excess debt of some types may be discharged and in essence "forgiven". And I'm confused, if you think the debt on your home was discharged - so their is no loan...what payments would you have to default on?

The reason is that internal voids within the insulation will discharge as the voltage rises; once discharged, they will not do so again at some higher voltage. if all voids become discharged, theoretically the plot of tan delta versus voltage would level off to a horizontal line. In effect, tip-up becomes "negative".

One volt is a joule per coulomb, therefore over time the battery looses electrical energy (joule) and this is why the battery becomes discharged.put simply it is because the electrical energy is being consumed.

If the BK filer is allowed to discharge the debt a joint account holder who is not a party to the bankruptcy becomes solely responsible for the entire amount. Cancelling or closing the account will not change the fact that the person will still owe the debt and it will eliminate the possibility of said person to negotiate terms with the lender if it becomes necessary. If the joint account holder continues to meet the required terms of the account agreement his or her credit score will not be negatively affected.

There is nothing that "removes" a name from a mortgage. That contract, like all contracts, is relevant until it is completed (paid). However, chapter 7 bankruptcy can discharge the debt. On any joint debt that one party discharges through bankruptcy, the other account holder becomes 100% liable for the balance.

Current, no - Charge, yes - Although that charge becomes a current when you discharge it. Capacitors have a residual voltage when power is removed, unless something (such as a resistor) is used to discharge that voltage. The TV CRT (Picture Tube) is a VERY LARGE capacitor, with a VERY LARGE voltage. (25kV typically for a 25 inch set). There is generally no discharge circuit, so you MUST discharge the CRT before working on it. Additionally, due to capacitive memory, the CRT can regain part of its charge even after being discharged, so it is prudent to always discharge immediately before working on it.

When a lead acid battery becomes discharged both electrodes undergo chemical changes to form lead sulphate and eventually the battery dies.

A relationship is in most cases official when it's on Facebook.

that is normal it is how the vagina cleans out itself it is however something to wory about if that discharge becomes thick and yellowy coloured

If you receive an inheritance within 180 days after filing bankruptcy, it becomes the property of the bankruptcy estate and the Chapter 7 trustee can distribute the proceeds for the benefit of creditors.

Yes this is normal. If the discharge becomes red - see your doctor.

When a bankruptcy is filed an automatic stay goes into effect. This halts almost all actions by creditors such as, lawsuits, garnishments, foreclosures, contempt proceedings pertaining to failure to pay child support, evictions (except California). A creditor retains the right to petition the court to have the "stay" lifted, an action that is possible but not usually granted except when it pertains to secured property. Many of the debts owed that resulted in lawsuits, garnishment, etc. can be discharged in the bankruptcy. This however will NOT be true when new bankruptcy reform becomes law on Oct 17, 2005.

Get StartedA debtor is a person or entity that owes a debt or obligation to another. A creditor is a person or entity to whom a debt is owed.The United States Bankruptcy Code is a federal law that permits qualified debtors to:discharge some or all of their debts in exchange for giving up all of their nonexempt assets, orreorganize their debts in an attempt to pay them back under relaxed terms.A bankruptcy may be voluntary (initiated by the debtor) or involuntary (initiated by the creditors). To begin a voluntary bankruptcy, the debtor files a petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court. Upon filing the petition, the debtor receives an automatic "stay" which orders creditors to pause in their collection efforts during the bankruptcy process. The debtor must file detailed information with the bankruptcy court identifying all assets, debts and creditors. All creditors must be notified of the bankruptcy so that each creditor can file notice of its claim with the bankruptcy court.By filing the petition, the debtor permits the creation of the bankruptcy "estate" which includes all of the debtor's assets, except those assets that the debtor successfully claims as "exempt" (those that are necessary so that the debtor can live and work). The rules for determining what property becomes part of the bankruptcy estate are complex. A court-appointed bankruptcy trustee administers the estate.There are several different types of bankruptcy to choose from. Each type is referred to by the Chapter of the Federal Bankruptcy Code in which it appears. In general, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy results in a sale of all of the debtor's non-exempt assets, but most debts are then discharged. Note that a debtor cannot discharge its debts if the new petition is filed within 6 years of a prior bankruptcy petition. In a rehabilitation case filed under Chapters 11, 12, or 13, the debtor retains his assets and makes payments to the creditors, usually from the post-bankruptcy earnings, pursuant to a court-approved payment plan which is more relaxed than it had been before bankruptcy.Anyone who is interested in filing bankruptcy should consult a qualified attorney.

If the discharge is a very milky and white with a none smelling then yes it could be sign but if the discharge becomes thick and smelly then you need to go to the doctors.

The note becomes a part of the bankrupt individuals assets.

Under current bankruptcy law it is possible to eliminate or "strip" a 2nd trust deed (mortgage) through chapter 13 bankruptcy. A competent experienced bankruptcy attorney can accomplish this. There is a lot of misinformation propogated in this area often by persons attempting to take advantage of others. The basic requirement is that the value of the home is less than that owed by the first trust deed. The 2nd trust deed becomes an unsecured debt and no longer a lien on the home. When the chapter 13 is concluded any balance owed to unsecured creditors including the 2nd trust deed is discharged. Answer provided by a bankruptcy attorney with over 30 years of experience.
