Proposal then bankruptcy

October 18th, 2013 by Questions


We currently have a consumer proposal. We find the payments are too high for us to pay. Bankruptcy is our next option but we just aren’t sure about it yet.
Can we stop our proposal, wait a couple of months and then go into bankruptcy if that is what we decide?

Thanks for your help.

You really should call your trustee and explain your situation – they can advise you on your options and what makes the most sense for you.

Having said that, if you fall three payments in arrears in your proposal it will be annulled (cancelled). You have the right to file bankruptcy at any time (even now if you want), but most people wait until their proposal has been annulled to give them some time…
