Just what Debts are erased if I go Bankrupt?
The practical answer is that when it involves Filing For Bankruptcy most debts are wiped, and I have included a compendium below for you to look at.
But, simply put some of the exceptions are Centrelink Debts, Child Support, Court fines (like speeding fines) alongside any debts arising from uninsured Motor-vehicle claims and educational debts like HECS or FEE-HELP. These debts are not removed when you file for bankruptcy.
What about Secured Debts?
A secured debt is a car loan or a home loan; it is a debt that has some genuine security connected to it. So for example if you buy a new car for $40,000 dollars the security for that car is the actual car itself.
So, can my secured debts be erased if I file for bankruptcy?
Yes. If you have a car loan for $40,000 you can have that debt cleared away if you simply return the car. So the lesson is that you cannot have your cake and eat it too (so to speak), so yes all of your secured debts could be wiped but the asset will need to be sold or returned. This is just one part that, when it comes to Filing For Bankruptcy, it is necessary to get professional assistance – like that offered at Bankruptcy Experts Toowoomba.
