If you are behind in your house or vehicle payments, can Chapter 7 bankruptcy stop a foreclosure or repossession from taking place?

Posted on April 24, 2019. Filed under: Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney | Tags: |

Whenever any bankruptcy case is filed, the banks are usually stopped from taking action to collect the debts that were owed at the time of the bankruptcy. This feature of bankruptcy is called the “automatic stay.” The automatic stay, if it applies, stops a foreclosure or repossession from going forward. However, no Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing allows you to keep property that is security for a loan without making payments on the loan. For example, folks with home mortgages and vehicle loans cannot keep their homes and vehicles without making payments. As soon as the bankruptcy case is closed, the automatic stay terminates, and the bank can proceed with foreclosure or repossession. Moreover, if you are not current on payments, bank may ask the court to terminate the automatic stay while the bankruptcy is still pending, and, in Chapter 7, banks are usually able to terminate the automatic stay. In order to keep property that is security for a loan in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you often must enter into a “reaffirmation agreement” with the bank who holds the lien on that property.

If you are behind on a home or vehicle loan and can not get caught up, you may want to ask your Bankruptcy Attorney about Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy can enable you to get caught up on the loans and possibly even pay the loans back through the Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan and stop paying the bank directly.

As always, give us a call to schedule a free, no obligation appointment to discuss your situation.

Here’s why you should talk to an attorney before you part with any of your tax refund.

Posted on January 22, 2019. Filed under: Chapter 7 Bankruptcy | Tags: , , |

It will soon be that time of year for tax refunds. We have questions from folks as to whether they can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy before filing taxes and still keep their tax refunds coming to them after they file bankruptcy or whether they can keep a tax refund received right before filing bankruptcy.

The answer is that they generally can keep their refunds, depending, of course, on how large the refund is and what you do with the refund. The general bankruptcy exemptions available under the federal bankruptcy exemptions (which can be used in Kentucky) are usually large enough to protect most tax refunds from being taken by the trustee. You can also use your tax refund to pay the fees and costs for the bankruptcy.

Also, if you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, and are going to use your tax refund to pay off a debt to a family member or creditor prior to filing bankruptcy, you should consult with a bankruptcy attorney before doing that. There are provisions in the bankruptcy law which may allow the trustee to take that money back from the family member or creditor should you then file bankruptcy after paying them. Alternatively, if you just keep the refund and don’t pay any of it to anyone, then the refund may be able to be protected with the exemptions as outlined above.

Your circumstances will be unique, so always discuss your options with an experienced bankruptcy attorney before you part with your tax refund money.

Your Tax Refund and Bankruptcy: What to Know !

Tax refund time is here. We have questions from folks as to whether they can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy before or after filing taxes and still keep their tax refunds.

The answer is that they generally can keep their refunds, depending, of course, on how large the refund is. The general bankruptcy exemptions available under the federal bankruptcy exemptions (which can be used in Kentucky) are usually large enough to protect most tax refunds from being lost to the trustee. You can also use your tax refund to pay the fees and costs for the bankruptcy.

Also, if you are thinking about filing bankruptcy, and are going to use your tax refund to pay off a debt to a family member or creditor prior to filing bankruptcy, you should consult with a bankruptcy attorney before doing that. There are provisions in the bankruptcy law which may allow the trustee to take that money back from the family member or creditor should you then file bankruptcy after paying them.

A Troubling New Tactic by Debt Collectors

Posted on November 16, 2018. Filed under: Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Consumer Alerts, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney, Debt Collectors | Tags: , |

 

Click on the paragraph excerpt below to read about CBS News report on a troubling new tactic being used by debt collectors.  If you are suffering from debt collectors contacting you,  Bankruptcy can help. Give us a call today to schedule a free, no obligation  appointment to review your options.

“Overstating a debtor’s balance — also called “overbiffing” — is the latest outrage in unfair debt collection.

In a recent case, regulators allege a New York debt collector may have tricked thousands of consumers into paying far more than they actually owed by fraudulently inflating consumer balances and using profane, abusive and illegal tactics to collect the fabricated bills. The term is called “overbiffing” because the scammers overstate a person’s “balance in full,” which is sometimes shortened to BIF.”
