The problem is that you usually don`t know when your confirmation agreement will be filed. Also, once it is filed, most lawyers will understand that you do not change your mind about it. Thus, you will be informed of your right of withdrawal, but most of the time, no one discovers or persecutes when that right expires. While affirmation agreements are essential to the maintenance of private and real estate ownership by debtors, they can also lead to devastating financial difficulties. Given the seriousness of the consequences a debtor must bear with incriminating debts, the Bankruptcy Act provides several guarantees for the protection of debtors who wish to repeat their debts, including the right to withdraw from a confirmation agreement within a specified time frame, and the obligation for the Tribunal to review some of these agreements to ensure that they do not constitute unjustified severity for the debtor; and , for pro-s debtors in the best interests of the debtor. See 11 U.S.C 524 (c), k and (m). If the confirmation agreement is not cancelled within the legal time frame, a debtor cannot repay that debt through bankruptcy and could be liable for a significant default if the debtor is in default, even if security that insures the debt is withdrawn or locked. The U.S. Court Administration has entered into a U.S. confirmation agreement containing the legal information, as well as a confirmation agreement to obtain a large number of confirmed commitments.

Trying to put custom terms into a preprinted form is not only crazy, but also increases the risk that the debtor (or court) will misinterpret the terms of the confirmed agreement.

To ensure that the debtor clearly fulfills his or her obligations under the confirmed debt, you should consider adding a formal loan modification agreement to the formal confirmation agreement.
