One Response to “Loans”

, Barton Goth - Goth & Company Inc. -Trustee in Bankruptcy said:

Legally speaking family loans are no different than your other loans, so they are included when you file a bankruptcy and cleared when you are discharged from bankruptcy.

Additionally, you are not permitted to make any payments on these loans while you are in bankruptcy. This is because the legislation is designed to treat all your creditors in an equal and fair manner and if you make payments towards them you are violating the principles the legislation is based on.
