8 Questions Answered
Q. I am currently homeless and i spent money claimed on my wild card exemption before a 341 meeting can i get into trouble?
A: This is a difficult question to answer without asking you more detailed questions. For example, generally speaking, if you spend $500.00 or less on necessities I would say it is not a problem. If you spent a large amount of money and the trustee feels for some reason that the money was not exempt then you could have a problem. Again, this is a difficult question to answer without knowing more details. If you filed your bankruptcy with an attorney you should definitely call him for advice.
Q. My client is 88, her home is under water and she cannot afford to repair the failing electric and plumbing systems.
A: A Chapter 7 bankruptcy sounds like it may be in her best interest at this time however I can not say this absolutely without a full interview. You can call me or another experienced bankruptcy attorney and they should be able to give you a good solid answer and plan to move forward. A chapter 7 discharge would absolve her of her unsecured debts and any deficiency balance after the surrender or foreclosure on the house and allow her to get a fresh start by just paying rent.
Q. Can the uplyft capital loan be forgiven
A: "Forgiven" and "discharged" are two different terms. Yes, the debt can be discharged in bankruptcy. If it is a secured loan then you will have to continue making payments to keep the collateral or you can surrender the collateral but either way the debt is discharged. If it is unsecured it can be discharged. If the loan is forgiven then you could have serious tax consequences. Any cancelled or forgiven debt can be considered income to you and reported as such on your taxes.
