Michigan Bankruptcy - Walk Away With Debt

By: James Arther

Michigan bankruptcy laws are not different from Las Vegas bankruptcy laws as both falls under chapters 7, 9, 11, 13. Under chapter 7, though the loan is totally waved off but still you are responsible for child support, alimony, student loans, fraudulent debts, etc. Relief under chapter 7 is available to individuals, married couples, business corporate and partnership firms. Though there are certain exemptions still granted while filing the case under Michigan bankruptcy laws chapter 7 viz. you can keep your home where you are staying retirement dues, motor vehicle etc. Married couples can double the amount of exemption. In case you opt for second exemption that is also granted however limited to certain basic requirements a man needs for survival .You should also be aware that within weeks of filing a bankruptcy under Chapter 7, you must file any overdue tax returns. In certain case under chapter 7 the court appoints a trustee who takes stock of your non-exempt assets and sells it off to arrange payment to creditors.

Michigan bankruptcy laws clearly defines that if your income is below average as per Michigan city norms then your case is dealt as insolvent or with no assets. However after duly checking your income during the last six months, meaning you don't possess any non exempt assets which the trustee could sell to pay back to creditors and therefore you are cleared of repaying back. After thorough screening most of the cases are not cleared under chapter 7 and therefore one has no other option than to opt for chapter13 bankruptcy. The moment one files for bankruptcy in court, the debtors cannot collect debt from and in fact, it brings automatic stay to maintain status qua on your property and respite from litigation by creditor. In fact, now your creditors cannot collect debt from you directly until the settlement of case by the court.

However, it may be stressed that filing bankruptcy does not mitigate your sufferings but rather adds to your woes-you loose social standing, shameful, emotional breakdown, credit rating and credibility in the long run.

As such, it is always advisable to avoid bankruptcy in order to live a honorable and illustrious life in the society. To ensure not falling into such a shameful situation, one should ensure to manage his finances/ income very wisely. At the beginning of each month one should first pay off all the credits whether credit card payments or cash loans and then with the remaining balance money in hand should manage the expanses in such a way that you are never short of funds. But this whole exercise requires restrain and control and in fact this is the key to your happy life.
