When there is no money to satisfy creditors
Consumer bankruptcy is used when the current income of a debtor and its assets are not sufficient to cover all the outstanding liabilities, nor to satisfy all creditors.
In such situations, a court will decide what amount of money a debtor has to pay off, for how long and indicate under what conditions this will happen (a debt repayment plan). The maximum period during which a debtor is obliged to repay liabilities is 36 months.
To take an advantage of the possibility to declare consumer insolvency, the consumer’s debts cannot be caused by a wilful misconduct of the debtor or his gross negligence.
