Over-indebted private individuals (natural persons) can apply to the local court for residual debt discharge as part of consumer insolvency proceedings. However, an out-of-court settlement with creditors must first be attempted.
Over-indebted citizens seeking consumer insolvency proceedings have the option of contacting a recognized insolvency advice center or, for example, a lawyer of their choice. Insofar as personal income circumstances require, an application for free legal advice (counseling assistance) is possible for advice from a lawyer, which must be submitted to the competent local court.
Before judicial residual debt discharge proceedings can be initiated, a suitable person (lawyer, notary, tax advisor) or a suitable body (recognized insolvency advice center) must certify that an out-of-court settlement attempt was made but failed.
