Undischarged Bankruptcy

By: Sara Peterson1

While filing bankruptcy whether you choose chapter 7 or chapter 13, the sole aim of every debtor is to secure a successful discharge. In simple words discharged bankruptcy is permanent absolution of the involved debts.
The bankrupt person may not obtain credit beyond a certain limit without notifying the creditor of his undischarged status. Until you get the order of discharge, you still are legally forced to keep paying creditors what you owe and the creditors are permitted to contact you and ask you to pay. But after achieving discharge, a creditor legally has no right to contact you. Also an undischarged bankruptcy cannot hold or start any offices, especially when the office is related to finance.
The duration of an undischarged bankrupt depends on the type of bankruptcy you are filing. But at maximum it may last for four years. To get the discharge at an ease, provide accurate records to the court and be cooperative with them. Those filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, creditors have the right to object to your filing. They will try to show and prove that you have the capacity to pay your debt and are acting fraudulently. If the creditors donít object, once the tenure for objection is over, a judge will automatically discharge your bankruptcy. But this is not applicable to chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Most types of personal bankruptcies for individuals are filed under the three main chapters of the Bankruptcy Code- Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13. Only the federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over bankruptcy cases, which mean that it cannot be filed in a state court. Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the debtors to wipe down many debts by selling their secured assets and property to repay the creditors. Chapter 13 allows the debtors to repay the amount in better terms, i.e. lower or no interest for which a time-period of 3 to 5 years is granted. Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a firm the opportunity to reorganize its debt to stay intact in the business and pay their debts through money earned in business.
If debtor declares bankruptcy then that type of debts are classified as bad debt. National asset management services can help this and they have one of the most cost effective and efficient ways of prioritizing an account for payment.
