Why can’t I do a proposal?
January 28th, 2013 by Questions
I have met with a Trustee and asked if I can do a consumer proposal instead of a bankruptcy. The Trustee said that I don’t have enough income to support a proposal, but I disagree. I owe $30,000 and had the understanding that if I could come up with 1/3 of the money I owe that I could ask to do a proposal instead of filing for bankruptcy. I feel I can afford $150/month for 60 months, which would be almost a third of what I owe. Can the Trustee refuse to ask the creditors to accept my proposal and force me to file for bankruptcy instead?

If you don’t want to listen the the advice from the trustee you already spoke to, then I suppose start calling until you find a trustee that will accept your file. Trustees are not required to accept you as a client – they may refuse to accept any file, just like you are free to call someone else.
