What happens if he declares himself bankrupt?

Customer Question

What happens if he declares himself bankrupt?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Will the claim extend to his personal holdings as well?
Expert:  Ross Miller replied 7 months ago.

Yes, if someone has a debt of this magnitude and then their personal assets can be obtained to pay the sums due. A persona cannot simply just make themselves bankrupt to avoid paying debt. When someone is bankrupt their debts don't just disappear. However if they are successful in doing this the you may still get a percentage of what you are owed.

I hope that has answered your question.

If his stuff is in the name of his family?
Expert:  Ross Miller replied 7 months ago.

No just the things that he owns sadly.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hmm ok thank u for the information in any case
Expert:  Ross Miller replied 7 months ago.

A persons family assets cannot be removed to pay someone else debts by law. If he has assets such as a car, furnishings or even a home in his name then these would be taken into consideration.

I hope this information has helped.
