Why do you fight bankruptcy cases? What happens if you don't fight them?

What does a bankruptcy "discharge" do to a debt? Does the debt go away? May the debtor still voluntarily pay it? What risks are involved when that happens?

Are all debts discharged if you don't fight back? (Hint: They aren't.)

What happens if the debtor still has the collateral but did not reaffirm? May you repossess? May you discuss payments? May you accept late payments? How should it be reported to credit bureaus?

What about mortgages and HELOCs? Are they discharged in bankruptcy? (Hint: Sometimes they are and sometimes they aren't.) If they become late, may you enter into workout agreements? May you rewrite them? What happens when a balloon payment becomes due after the bankruptcy is over?

If the debtor had a balance on a credit card when the bankruptcy was filed and continued to use the card and to pay, but did not reaffirm, is the balance collectible?

During this online training program, attorney Eric North provides answers to the questions above and will discuss:

Just because the bankruptcy is over doesn't mean the relationship between your financial institution and the debtor is over. Often you will continue to do business for years after the discharge, but with a relationship that may have been changed significantly by the bankruptcy case.
