Chapter 7

Chapter 7 is often referred to as liquidation bankruptcy because debtors are required to liquidate assets to pay outstanding debts. In the past, this personal bankruptcy chapter was the preferred choice because it wipes out debts and allows debtors to have a fresh start.

Today, Chapter 7 is only offered to debtors who do not qualify for Chapter 13 under regulations set forth in the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. These new bankruptcy laws were enacted to reduce frivolous bankruptcy filings to eradicate credit card debt and personal debts caused by reckless spending.

Forbearance in Bankruptcy

Forbearance in bankruptcy can be a complex matter that requires help from a qualified attorney. Forbearance is a special financing arrangement that delays loan payments and prohibits banks from commencing with foreclosure or repossession of property used to secure the loan.

Forbearance in bankruptcy can go awry because technically borrowers are defaulting on the forbearance plan once they record their bankruptcy petition. However, when the petition is submitted the courts enter an automatic stay that stops collection activities from all creditors, including mortgage lenders.

Filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

If you are considering filing chapter 13 bankruptcy it is crucial to take time to become educated about the process. Obtaining debt help through personal bankruptcy is not an easy or inexpensive process. The majority of people who use this strategy to reduce financial burdens often find it causes more harm than good.

Filing chapter 13 bankruptcy requires debtors to retain the services of a bankruptcy lawyer. This can be expensive because new bankruptcy laws require lawyers to certify that all financial information provided is truthful and accurate.

Investors

Investors refer to an individual or group of people who invest money into specific projects. All types of investment opportunities exist. People invest in stocks, bonds, small businesses, corporations, and real estate. Each type of investment comes with its own set of pros and cons. Some can be quite profitable while others take a large chunk out of your savings account.

Investors need to become educated about the market, product, business or individuals they are investing in. It would be rather foolish to invest your life savings into a project or person you know nothing about. Although you might possess beginner's luck and strike it rich your first time out, investing is a game that requires research, planning and a watchful eye over where your investment money is being spent.

File Bankruptcy

In order to file bankruptcy debtors must follow established protocol set forth in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. In 2005, Congress enacted new bankruptcy laws, making it much more difficult to file. Few people can undergo the process alone and will require the services of an attorney.

When people file bankruptcy they must undergo the 'means' test; a financial tool that determines how much debt must be repaid. The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act require debtors must repay a portion of debts unless they earn less than their states' median income level.

Bankruptcy Confirmation

Bankruptcy confirmation hearings are required when debtors file for protection under chapter 13. Also known as 'reorganization', this bankruptcy chapter requires debtors to submit a repayment plan to the judge. The confirmation hearing is required to determine if the repayment plan adheres to regulations set forth in the United States Bankruptcy Code.

The bankruptcy confirmation typically occurs within 45 days after the 341 creditors meeting. This meeting allows creditors to question the debtor regarding their ability to repay outstanding debts. Information is provided under oath. If the debtor provides falsified information they could potentially face jail time and are certain to have their bankruptcy request denied.

A 4506 tax form is required when taxpayers need a copy of previously filed tax returns. The form 4506 can be used by individuals or businesses or to authorize release of tax files to a third party such as accountants, CPAs, bankruptcy attorneys, lenders or probate executor.

When a third party uses the 4506 tax form, they must adhere to confidentiality laws set forth by section 6103(e) of the Internal Revenue Service. Section 6103(e) pertains to disclosing tax returns to a person with material interest including spouses, business partnerships, corporate board of directors, personal estates and trusts.

Business Bankruptcy

Business bankruptcy filings are occurring at an unprecedented rate. Last year, bankruptcy courts reported a whopping 50-percent increase in filings over the previous year. Bloomberg.com, a worldwide provider of financial information, reports more than 18,000 businesses filed for bankruptcy protection during the first four months of 2008 alone. Unfortunately, the outlook is even gloomier for 2009.

Filing business bankruptcy requires the assistance of a qualified bankruptcy attorney. The new bankruptcy laws enacted in 2005 have made filing both personal and business bankruptcy nearly impossible. Known as the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act, BAPCPA places numerous restrictions on financial constraints on business owners.
