I Was Discharged From A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy More Than 3 Years Ago, How Soon Can I File For A Chapter 13?

Postby farquharson61 » Thu Jan 30, 2014 5:47 am

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy There are many reasons why people choose Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead of Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Generally, you are probably a good candidate for Chapter 13 bankruptcy if you are in any of the following situations: 1. You have a sincere desire to repay your debts, but you need the protection of the bankruptcy court to do so. You may think filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy is simply the "Right Thing To Do" rather than file Chapter 7. 2. You are behind on your mortgage or car loan, and want to make up the missed payments over time and reinstate the original agreement. You cannot do this in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You can make up missed payments only in Chapter 13 bankruptcy. 3. You need help repaying your debts now, but need to leave open the option of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the future. This would be the case if for some reason you can't stop incurring new debt. 4. You are a family farmer who wants to pay off your debts, but you do not qualify for a Chapter 12 family farming bankruptcy because you have a large debt unrelated to farming. 5. You have valuable nonexempt property. When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you get to keep certain property, called exempt. If you have a lot of nonexempt property(which you'd have to give up if you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy), Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the better option. 6. You filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy within the previous eight years. You cannot file for Chapter 7 again until the eight years are up..A Chapter 13 can be filed if: * The debtor received a discharge under Chapter 7, 11 or 12 more than four years ago; or * the debtor received a discharge under Chapter 13 more than two years ago. * You have a co-debtor on a personal debt. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your creditor will go after the co-debtor for payment. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the creditor will leave your co-debtor alone, as long as you keep up with your bankruptcy plan payments. * You have a tax debt. If a large part of your debt consists of federal taxes, what happens to your tax debts may determine which type of bankruptcy is best for you.You can discharge(wipe out) debts for federal income taxes in Chapter 7 bankruptcy only if all of these five conditions are true: 1. The taxes are income taxes. Taxes other than income, such as payroll taxes, Trust Fund Recovery Penalty or fraud penalties, can never be eliminated in bankruptcy. 2. You did not commit fraud or willful evasion. You did not file a fraudulent tax return or otherwise willfully attempt to evade paying taxes, such as using a false Social Security number on your tax return. 3. You pass the three-year rule. The tax return was originally due at least three years before you file for bankruptcy. 4. You pass the two-year rule. You actually filed the tax return at least two years before filing the bankruptcy -- having the IRS file a substitute return for you doesn't count unless you agreed to and signed the substitute return. 5. You pass the 240-day rule. The income tax debt was assessed by the IRS at least 240 days before you file your bankruptcy petition, or has not yet been assessed.If any of the following situations apply to you, you will have to add time to the three-year, two-year or 240-day rules for your debts to qualify for discharge in bankruptcy: 1. If you submitted an Offer in Compromise, the 240-day rule is delayed by the period of time from when the Offer is made until the IRS rejects it or you withdraw it, plus 30 days. 2. If you obtained a Taxpayer Assistance Order from an IRS Problems Resolution Officer preventing the IRS from collecting, the bankruptcy court may require that you add the time collection was suspended to the three-year, two-year and 240-day requirements. 3. If you filed a previous bankruptcy case, all three time periods stopped running while you were in the prior bankruptcy case. You must add the length of your case plus six months to all three.Caution! A Chapter 7 bankruptcy will wipe out only your personal obligation to pay the debt. Any lien recorded before you file for bankruptcy remains.

A legal blog is a safe place to build trust and credibility. This is the place from where an attorney or a law firm creates recognition for their practice. Harnessing the power of a blog is easy, but only if you are sending positive vibes to the readers, providing them with original and informative content. This will cause readers to consciously follow you to your website or profile on a social networking site. Blogs can also include videos, and can play a vital role within the blog.The image that you send through blogs will help in creating an outside perception and build brand image.Attorneys have an edge while blogging. While law firm Internet marketing gurus preach suggest blogging regularly for long-term success, lawyers must understand that there is not a short cut to success and nothing happens instantly ? patience is the key. If you are patient and consistent with your blogging efforts, success is sure to follow.The road map to success using blogs requires you to be consistent, realistic and passionate about what you write. The strength of words, the depth of your knowledge and the quality of information will help in developing trust with the readers, who would start considering you as an authority on the subject that you are writing about. It?s beneficial to have your own niche blog. Though free online blog services help users maintain their blogs, they also offer free blog templates for you to choose from. However, for practical purposes, you must develop your own custom blog that can extend the air of seriousness of your legal practice to the readers of your blog.Blogs lead many interested online surfers to the informative blog content. It?s for you to harness the benefits and use blogs to achieve marketing success.If you are interested in a legal blog for your law firm, log on to http://www.oneseocompany.com to inquire about your attorney website design, lawyer Internet marketing, social media marketing and other web marketing solutions.
