FAQ

Are College Savings Safe in Bankruptcy?

A 529 Plan is also known as a qualified tuition plan for college purposes.  Monies used to fund a 529 Plan grow on a tax free basis so long as upon withdraw the principal plus any growth are used for educational purposes only.  In accordance with the applicable Consumer Bankruptcy Statute, 11 USC Section 541(b)(6) monetary contributions to a 529 Plan within one year of filing the Bankruptcy would be property of the bankruptcy estate.  Funds contributed in excess of $5,000 between one and two years of filing a Consumer Bankruptcy would be property of the bankruptcy estate.  Any funds contributed over two years before the bankruptcy is filed would not be made part of the bankruptcy estate without limitation.   Since there is no limitation after only a two year look back from the date of a bankruptcy filing, the bankruptcy code is relatively favorable regarding college savings in the form of 529 Plans.   I hope this blog post was helpful.

Filing A Second Or Third Bankruptcy Case

For numerous reasons, an individual or married couple might not be able to complete their Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.  When payments are not made on a regular monthly basis, one’s case can be dismissed.  The failure to make payments is often not the fault of debtors, and can stem from a loss of income or health related issues.

Unfortunate circumstances can befall good people who were otherwise doing well in their Bankruptcy cases.  To avoid the sale of one’s home at foreclosure sale, or for any number of other reasons, a second or third Bankruptcy filing may be required.  However, it is important to understand that the laws pertaining to the Automatic Stay (The Bankruptcy Protection) can change with subsequent filings.  Do not be discouraged, and call one of the Attorneys at the Law Offices of Sadek & Cooper for a free consultation to review your options.

Our Attorneys will make a careful review of the docket of your prior case in order to determine how your rights will be affected in a subsequent Bankruptcy filing.  For instance, if a second Bankruptcy filing is made within one year of the dismissal of a prior filing, then the Automatic Stay will expire after 30 days. See 11 U.S.C. §362(c)(3).  With the skilled help from one of our Attorneys, the Automatic Stay can be extended for the duration of your case after the filing of a Motion with the Bankruptcy Court to Extend the Automatic Stay.

Additionally, if a third Bankruptcy is filed and pending within the same year as two prior cases, then there will not be an Automatic Stay upon filing.   However, carefully drafted motions by one of our Attorneys, offer our Clients the best chance to have the Court issue an Order Imposing the Automatic Stay in situations such as this.

Even if you have filed Bankruptcy in the past, you may be able to re-file Bankruptcy when done in good faith.  Allow one of our legal professionals to guide you through the process, and clearly explain your options.
