B2400A/B ALT (Form 2400A/B ALT) (12/15)
Reaffirming a debt is a serious financial decision. The law requires you to take certain
steps to make sure the decision is in your best interest. If these steps are not completed, the
reaffirmation agreement is not effective, even though you have signed it.
1. Read the disclosures in this Part A carefully. Consider the decision to reaffirm
carefully. Then, if you want to reaffirm, sign the reaffirmation agreement in Part B (or you may
use a separate agreement you and your creditor agree on).
2. Complete and sign Part D and be sure you can afford to make the payments you are
agreeing to make and have received a copy of the disclosure statement and a completed and
signed reaffirmation agreement.
3. If you were represented by an attorney during the negotiation of your reaffirmation
agreement, the attorney must have signed the certification in Part C.
4. If you were not represented by an attorney during the negotiation of your reaffirmation
agreement, you must have completed and signed Part E.
5. The original of this disclosure must be filed with the court by you or your creditor. If a
separate reaffirmation agreement (other than the one in Part B) has been signed, it must be
attached.
6. If the creditor is not a Credit Union and you were represented by an attorney during
the negotiation of your reaffirmation agreement, your reaffirmation agreement becomes effective
upon filing with the court unless the reaffirmation is presumed to be an undue hardship as
explained in Part D. If the creditor is a Credit Union and you were represented by an attorney
during the negotiation of your reaffirmation agreement, your reaffirmation agreement becomes
effective upon filing with the court.
7. If you were not represented by an attorney during the negotiation of your reaffirmation
agreement, it will not be effective unless the court approves it. The court will notify you and the
creditor of the hearing on your reaffirmation agreement. You must attend this hearing in
bankruptcy court where the judge will review your reaffirmation agreement. The bankruptcy
court must approve your reaffirmation agreement as consistent with your best interests, except
that no court approval is required if your reaffirmation agreement is for a consumer debt secured
by a mortgage, deed of trust, security deed, or other lien on your real property, like your home.

YOUR RIGHT TO RESCIND (CANCEL) YOUR REAFFIRMATION AGREEMENT
You may rescind (cancel) your reaffirmation agreement at any time before the
bankruptcy court enters a discharge order, or before the expiration of the 60-day period that
begins on the date your reaffirmation agreement is filed with the court, whichever occurs later.
To rescind (cancel) your reaffirmation agreement, you must notify the creditor that your
reaffirmation agreement is rescinded (or canceled).
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are your obligations if you reaffirm the debt? A reaffirmed debt remains your
personal legal obligation. It is not discharged in your bankruptcy case. That means that if you
default on your reaffirmed debt after your bankruptcy case is over, your creditor may be able to
take your property or your wages. Otherwise, your obligations will be determined by the
reaffirmation agreement which may have changed the terms of the original agreement. For
example, if you are reaffirming an open end credit agreement, the creditor may be permitted by
that agreement or applicable law to change the terms of that agreement in the future under
certain conditions.
Are you required to enter into a reaffirmation agreement by any law? No, you are not
required to reaffirm a debt by any law. Only agree to reaffirm a debt if it is in your best interest.
Be sure you can afford the payments you agree to make.
What if your creditor has a security interest or lien? Your bankruptcy discharge does not
eliminate any lien on your property. A ‘‘lien’’ is often referred to as a security interest, deed of
trust, mortgage or security deed. Even if you do not reaffirm and your personal liability on the
debt is discharged, because of the lien your creditor may still have the right to take the property
securing the lien if you do not pay the debt or default on it. If the lien is on an item of personal
property that is exempt under your State’s law or that the trustee has abandoned, you may be
able to redeem the item rather than reaffirm the debt. To redeem, you must make a single
payment to the creditor equal to the amount of the allowed secured claim, as agreed by the
parties or determined by the court.
NOTE: When this disclosure refers to what a creditor ‘‘may’’ do, it does not use
the word “may’’ to give the creditor specific permission. The word ‘‘may’’ is
used to tell you what might occur if the law permits the creditor to take the action.
If you have questions about your reaffirming a debt or what the law requires,
consult with the attorney who helped you negotiate this agreement reaffirming a
debt. If you don’t have an attorney helping you, the judge will explain the effect
of your reaffirming a debt when the hearing on the reaffirmation agreement is
held.
