So what Debts are cleared away if I go Bankrupt?
The simple answer is that when it involves Filing For Bankruptcy most debts are wiped, and I have added a chart 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 cleared away when you file for bankruptcy.
What about Secured Debts?
A secured debt is a vehicle loan or a home loan; it is a debt that has some genuine 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 cleared away if I file for bankruptcy?
Yes. If you have a car loan for $40,000 you can have that debt wiped out 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 has to be sold or returned. This is just one part that, when it comes to Filing For Bankruptcy, it is important to get professional advice – like that offered at Bankruptcy Experts Alice Springs.
