A brief description relating to reaffirmation agreements:

Reaffirmation Agreements

Even if a debt can be discharged, you may have special reasons why you want to promise to pay the debt. For example, you may wish to work out a plan with the bank to keep your automobile. To promise to pay that debt, you must sign and file a reaffirmation agreement with the Court.

Reaffirmation Agreements are under special rules and are completely voluntary. The reaffirmation agreements are not required by the bankruptcy law or by any other law. Make that phone call and our office can and will explain the Reaffirmation Agreement if needed.
Reaffirmation Agreement:

  • Must be voluntary;
  • Must not place too heavy of a burden on you or your family;
  • Must be in your best interest; and
  • Can be cancelled anytime before the court issues your discharge or within 60 days after the agreement is filed with the Court, whichever gives you the most time.

If you are an individual and you are not represented by an attorney, or your case is “presumed abusive” the Court must hold a hearing to decide whether to approve the reaffirmation agreement of not. The agreement will not be legally binding until the Court approves it.

If you reaffirm a debt and then fail to pay it, you owe that debt just as if there was no bankruptcy. That debt will not be discharged and the creditor can take action to recover any property on which they have a lien or mortgage. The creditor can also take legal action to recover a judgment against you for non-payment.
