Contingent, Unliquidated, and Disputed Debts

When a person files bankruptcy, they’re responsible for listing their debts in full. They must list all debts in accurate amounts, including debts that may not be precisely measured due to a variety of circumstances. These types of debts include the following:

  • Contingent debts, which may change due to future events
  • Unliquidated debts, which may not have their full amount figured out yet
  • Disputed debts, which are yet to be settled between creditors and debtors

Because some of these debt distinctions can become confusing, a debtor may want some assistance from a competent and knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney throughout the filing process.
