Bankruptcy Calgary Edmonton Q&A Forum



What is the status of creditors with "non-declared" debts incurred before the bankruptcy, following absolute discharge of the bankrupt. Thanks



Grant Thornton Limited



Apr 13, 2015



Hi Bruce, A person who filed for bankruptcy is released from the debts and liabilities outstanding at the date of bankruptcy once they receive their absolute discharge. If you had forgotten to include a creditor or debt on your statement of affairs but subsequently notification of the bankruptcy was sent to them before the preparation of the final receipts and disbursement (closing) of the file then the debt is still discharged with bankruptcy. Alternatively, if the creditor didnít receive notification and the file is closed then the debt is also included with bankruptcy; however, you are now responsible for any payment that the creditor may have been entitled to if they would have received notification of the bankruptcy and filed a proof of claim. Hope that helps.
