Canton Bankruptcy Lawyer
A reaffirmation agreement is a contract between a debtor and a creditor in which the debtor agrees to repay all or a portion of the debt. The main purpose of a reaffirmation, from a debtor’s perspective, is to keep secured property and protect it from repossession.
Reaffirmation agreements are commonly used by individuals in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy who wish to keep a car, truck, motorcycle, boat or other important secured property. If you are contemplating bankruptcy, it is critical that you understand how reaffirmation agreements work. There are important factors that you must consider to ensure the protection of your rights:
- You may be able to negotiate better contract terms with a reaffirmation agreement.
- Your reaffirmation agreement must be approved by a bankruptcy court.
- The timing of the agreement and its submission to the court must adhere to strict legal requirements set out in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
