The bankruptcy expert

  1. 1. The Bankruptcy Expert
  2. 2. Bankruptcy is a legal status of an individual or any other entity that cannot be able to repay the debts that he or she owes to the creditors. In most of the cases, it is imposed by a court order and it is usually initiated by a debtor. Bankruptcy expert are individuals who involve themselves in the proceedings that involve bankruptcy. Here are some of the highlights that concern bankruptcy experts:
  3. 3. In order to be pronounced that a business or a person is bankrupt, the bankruptcy experts will inform that the person or the business is able to repay the debts that it owes to the creditors. The bankruptcy process begins with a court petition that is filed by a debtor in most of the cases or it may be on behalf of the creditors which are less common.
  4. 4. All the assets of the debtor are evaluated and measured and the assets are then used to repay a portion of the debts that are outstanding. When there is complete completion of the bankruptcy proceedings, the debtor is relieved from the debt obligations that were incurred before the filing of the bankruptcy order.
  5. 5. Bankruptcy experts explain that bankruptcy offers businesses or individuals a chance to be able to start fresh by forgiving debts that cannot be simply be paid as the creditors are offered a chance to obtain some measure for the repayment based on the assets available.
  6. 6. Theoretically, having the ability to file for bankruptcy benefits an overall economy by giving businesses and persons another chance as well as providing creditors with a measure of how to do the debt repayments.
  7. 7. There is modern law and debt restructuring that the bankruptcy experts use in the process of bankruptcy. The main focus for current insolvency legislation as well as business debt restructuring practices do no rest on the elimination of the insolvent entities but it focuses on remodeling of the financial structure of the debtors who are experiencing financial distress in order to allow rehabilitation and to make sure that the business continues to operate.
  8. 8. As for the private households, it is argued that it is insufficient to just merely dismiss debts after some time. There is need to asses the problems that are underplaying as well as to minimize the financial distress for it not to reoccur.
  9. 9. Bankruptcy experts argue that having the right education, debt advice as well as supervised rehabilitation period and social help may give solutions to bankruptcy. When one is bankrupt, he or she has some trustees who may be bankruptcy experts and they perform some duties in the bankruptcy process.
  10. 10. The trustees review the files in order to make sure that there are no fraudulent preferences that took place. They also chair meetings and make sure that they sell any non-exempt assets as well as distribute the funds that they get to the creditors. They consider the affairs of the bankruptcy as they affirm any appointments of the trustee and they can substitute one another in case there is need to do so.
