13 year old undischarged bankruptcy

September 16th, 2009 by Questions

In 1996 I claimed bankruptcy for the second time. I attended debt counselling, however, upon checking the superintendent of bankruptcy and insolvency records they indicate that the discharge status is `Hearing Adjourned`. The discharge date on the record indicates that the discharge date should have been June 11, 1999. When I contacted the Trustee, of course, he wanted money to open the file. What are my options with the new amendments to the BIA?

There is likely no impact on you as your terms required for discharge were likely set back in 1996 and to finish this process you will need to go back to the original trustee, there will be a cost, but if you pay the cost, fulfill all your outstanding duties, then your trustee can re-apply to court to see if they will be willing to grant a discharge. However, be advised that the court will likely put a penalty in place for failure to do things in a timely fashion.
