Is it possible to be on social assistance and declare bankruptcy?
March 31st, 2015 by Questions
I had incurred line-of-credit debt. This was 9 years ago, and I have been away from Canada (I had to return home for reasons beyond control). I would like to come back to Canada and am not sure on how to proceed. It is not likely that I will have a job for a while, and I would probably have to be on well-fare before I obtain work. I would like to get rid of this debt which was originally around $20, 000 CAN.
Is it possible to pay the bankruptcy fees for a 9 month period, and then sign up for well-fare, or is it possible to be on social assistance and declare bankruptcy.
Assuming that’s the fee for a 9 month process is around 2,000 is it possible to pay and be away from the country, if I cannot find work right away or if they don’t allow me to be on social assistance).
How can I get in touch with you once I come back to Canada
