Creditors do not want you to know these bankruptcy secrets. Other than the fact that it might be complex and daunting, what do you know about bankruptcy? Protect yourself, your family, and your possessions by learning crucial bankruptcy secrets in order to make the greatest option for your future. The more you understand, the more confident you will be in your financial decision to file for bankruptcy or not.
First Secret: The Majority of Individuals Keep their Property.
If you file for bankruptcy, the finance industry would have you think that you would lose all you possess. Nonetheless, the Bankruptcy Code allows you to retain some assets and properties up to a specific value. This includes your house, automobiles, significant appliances, retirement savings, and any other assets necessary for a new beginning.
Second Secret: Nearly Anyone Can Declare Bankruptcy.
There is a widespread misperception that only bankrupt individuals may petition for bankruptcy. False, as virtually anybody or any business may file. The sole criterion is debt and a permanent U.S. resident or company. Until your filing date, you can continue to be employed, have a bank account, and possess property (subject to certain restrictions) without the courts or creditors seizing it all.
Third Secret: Credit is Available After Bankruptcy in North Carolina.
As terrible as declaring bankruptcy may seem, it is not the end of the world. There is an end to the tunnel. At Hoard Law, we will guide you through the bankruptcy procedure and assist you in obtaining a new beginning. After your bankruptcy is discharged, credit card offers will become instantly available again. On average, it takes between one and two years following bankruptcy to become eligible for mortgages and loans with competitive interest rates.
Fourth Secret: You can Declare Bankruptcy Without your Spouse.
Although it is possible to file for bankruptcy as a married couple, it is not needed. A spouse’s credit is unaffected by a spouse’s bankruptcy filing. However, it is recommended to file jointly if you and your spouse have shared debt. If there is joint debt and only one spouse files for bankruptcy, the remaining debt will be the responsibility of the other spouse.
Fifth and Final Secret: Your Bankruptcy will not Affect your Immigration Status.
This is another misunderstanding regarding bankruptcy in the United States. There is no legislation that indicates your bankruptcy will prohibit your visa, green card, or US citizenship from being denied or impacted.
