Will Everyone Know That I am Bankrupt?
We Do More Than Facilitate the Bankruptcy Process
Dignity and understanding is a key underlying part of our service offering to you. Bankruptcy is already a daunting process that is not easy to go through and we understand that better than most. We are driven by the fact that people come to us for help and we provide that help by applying our expert knowledge in the best possible way.
One of the ways in which we ensure we do everything in our power to protect you, is to ensure we safeguard your dignity. Our clients come to us not only because of our ability to help them navigate their way to a more successful future, but because we do not pass judgement.
We also establish a strong trusts relationship with our clients that includes keeping your financial matters confidential. This is to ensure that the legal process only deals with the parties affected and that it keeps all rules of engagement respectfully in check. This creates an environment that protects all parties affected.
Why It Is Important to Keep Everyone’s Information Private
There are a number of very important reasons why any Bankruptcy process needs to remain private and confidential. The reasons are endless from a legal, personal and social point of view. Some of the reasons we always highlight with our clients may include the following:
If you’re struggling and don’t know where to start, contact Andrew today for a free consultation.
You Need to Carry on With Your Life
We understand very well the effect a Bankruptcy process can have on you, the people that work for you, your creditors and most importantly your family. A very important element we always stress with our clients is that they must carry on with their lives, as soon as possible.
The best thing about the Bankruptcy process is that it was designed to protect all parties as best as the law can. This means you can continue to try and make a living or think about the future so that your current situation is only a temporary one. You are allowed to pick yourself up and start again.
Say for example, you want to start a new job or open a new business. You cannot have a dark cloud of uncertainty hanging over your head as you try to rebuild your life. This is why the law needs to protect you so that you can rebuild your life as soon as you can and in the best way possible.
We Need to Consider the Other Parties As Well
Going through a Bankruptcy process can be challenging not only to the insolvent party undergoing the process, but also the parties that are owed. This is why our clients come to us as they understand that this process is not just about the law, but also about the best possible approaches and solutions to complex situations. This is why we take over the rules of engagement to better serve the interest of all parties. It also takes away the stress and heartache you experience when difficult conversations need to take place.
Confidentiality Helps the Authorities to Perform Their Functions Optimally
By keeping the rules of engagement secure, private and effective will ensure that all parties are protected, and the process is as effective as possible. The law identifies who is authorised to do what and it is important to ensure that all parties do not do anything to cause impediments.
The appointed Trustee will also ensure that you and the other parties are treated equally under the law and this includes protecting everyone’s privacy throughout the entire process. This is not only fair, but the best way to execute all the legal steps as quickly and efficiently as possible.
As a Trustee in Bankruptcy, Ross Thomson is often required to think outside the box. As well as creative thinking, Ross brings compassion to the table.
For Ross, it’s important to see the people behind the financial problem –not just numbers.
Ross recently helped a bankrupt client who lives in a retirement village with her seriously ill husband.
The unit she & her husband live in is not owned by them, but subject to a 20-year lease.
The money to be repaid by the management was due only at sale, when the client finally left the retirement village.
Sale of the unit was likely to take several years &, if he did sell the couple’s unit, Ross realised he would be effectively evicting them from their home, without resources or family to help them.
Ross decided to contact the retirement village management & put a proposal to them that they prepay some of the moneys they would otherwise pay the client.
The village management considered the proposal & have agreed to prepay some of the moneys otherwise due.
The client is relieved that she will not be evicted & can now concentrate on helping her husband through his health issues.
The moneys paid represented about 75% of what would have been available to creditors if they waited two years.
It is a win for the client and for the creditors.
