- Bankruptcy is a formal, High Court process for people with debt over €20,000. Before you consider Bankruptcy you must first of all have considered the aforementioned PIA or DSA options. You will need a licensed PIP to confirm this to the court.
- All debts may be included in Bankruptcy excluding debts attributable to court fines or any new debts accumulated after date of Bankruptcy.
- You may self-petition for Bankruptcy and KPMG can assist you with all steps in this process.
- Once you are declared Bankrupt your property and possessions are transferred to a person called the Official Assignee. The Official Assignee then arranges for those items to be sold and the money generated from the sale is distributed to your creditors.
- Your creditors can no longer contact you – they must deal with the Official Assignee
- Your assets and debts are now the responsibility of the Official Assignee – you are no longer legally or morally responsible for them.
- Usually, after one year you will be discharged from Bankruptcy. If you have the ability to pay money to the creditors after your reasonable living expenses a payment order of up to 3 years will be put in place.
- During Bankruptcy you entitled to a reasonable standard of living. You will not be told how you should spend this allocation, so you are still in control of your spending.
