Filing For Bankruptcy Canberra, So what is the Deal with Debts?
Exactly 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 also included a compendium below for you to look at.
But, put simply some of the exceptions are Centrelink Debts, Child Support, Court fines (like speeding fines) as well as any debts arising from uninsured Motor-vehicle claims and educational debts which include HECS or FEE-HELP. These debts are not wiped out 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 definite security linked to it. So as an 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 eliminated if I file for bankruptcy?
Yes. If you have a car loan for $40,000 you can have that debt erased if you simply hand back 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 may be wiped but the asset will need to be sold or returned. This is just one component that, when it comes to Filing For Bankruptcy, it is necessary to get professional advice – like that offered at Bankruptcy Experts Canberra.
