What kind of control does the bankruptcy court have over your finances?

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

By filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you are technically placing the property you own and the debts you owe in the hands of the bankruptcy court. You can’t sell or give away any of the property you own when you file, or pay off your pre-filing debts, without the court’s consent. However, with a few exceptions, you can do what you wish with property you acquire and income you earn after you file for bankruptcy. Read More

You will be asked to produce your drivers license and social security card. The trustee will ask you the following questions: Read More

What happens after your 341 hearing?

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

If the trustee determines that all of your assets are exempt he will recommend to the court that your debts be discharged.  Approximately 90 days after your 341 hearing the court will order your debts discharged and your Chapter 7 will be completed.

At the end of the bankruptcy process, all of your debts are wiped out (discharged) by the court, except: Read More
