What can creditors do bad for the countries with high external debt like Greece, Venezuela. Can they be auctioned like debitor's property?
Is it true Venezuela has defaulted in its debt? Will this cause the country to fall into a civil war? How did the world react to it? Venezuela indeed just had a selective default today, something like two days after having officially declared they would *never* default. The consequences are likely to be milder than the debt restructuring of Greece for instance, because Venezuela should be able to avoid the pressure of IMF and so on on its policies. But still, it is going to increase even further the inflation, which is already a problem. Getting dollars to import everyday products is going to get more difficult, especially if the prices of oil remain low (their balance of trade tend to be negative since early 2015, while it used to be in largely positive). It will increase the risks of corruption and fraud in the official currency exchanges, while making black market a more and more profitable business. In parallel, it will increase the quantity of shortage in shops (but note that shortage does not mean famine, it just mean that you can't have what you wanted to buy and have to by a local equivalent instead). It's not clear how it will impact the political situation. It is likely to increase the tensions, but it's not going to start a civil war just by itself, and we could even imagine that it could potentially strengthen the government (turning the local bureaucracies more corrupted and more influential, leaving less room for democracy). Regarding what the World will do, probably nothing. The US and its allies can't really be more anti-Venezuela that they already are. And invading countries which default on their debt is supposed to be a XIXth century thing.
When to file bankruptcy? Never ignore a court summons. They win by default. They can't garnish your wages in Texas, but they can place liens on any valuable property including bank accounts where your wages are deposited. Before going to BK or Debt Settlement, take the Consumer Credit Counseling route. Less damaging. Search for "Problems with debt settlement companies" to see why that route is bad. BK is also bad, but the BK court offers protection from your creditors that debt settlement don't. Make sure if you go the credit counseling route, that they are a non-profit group. Some debt settlement companies might disguise themselves as credit counselors. Before you can file a BK, you have to show that you don't have the "means" (financial resources) to pay your debts.
Do credit card companies track you internationally? Nope. Every nation has their own rules and regulations regarding credit and debt, so unless you are moving to a U.S. territory, it would be almost impossible for your creditors to come after you. With that said, debt dodging isn't a perfect solution. Substantial debt may be used as a reason to deny a Visa application. You may also need to avoid using banks that work internationally. Most importantly, you should know that the real tool for creditors against debt dodgers is the IRS. What happens is that they file a 1099 with the IRS, basically saying that since you have no intent to pay them back that what you borrowed should be considered income. The IRS has a wide reach, and can easily go after you nearly anywhere on Earth, but of course paying a few thousand in taxes might be a small compromise to make if your debt is otherwise too excessive. edit:Following answering, I Googled your question to ensure Australia didn't have any special laws that would make me wrong. It seems the only thing I hadn't accounted on was that if you work for a U.S. based employer your waged can apparently still be garnished.
When to file bankruptcy? Not going to court was a mistake. The CC companies have won their case by default. You now owe the amount of the debt, and most judgments cannot be bankrupted. In Texans, they cannot garnish your salary, BUT they can put a lien on your home and your car and your bank account. Yo be sure, your creditors have no reason to negotiate anything with you anymore. You could have spoken with them and made arrangements before they went to court. Now they are the ones who are holding all the cards.
When to file bankruptcy? #1- you made a BIG mistake by not appearing in Court....here's just one website w/info - If a creditor fails to show in court, the case may get dismissed since the creditor won’t be present to provide evidence regarding their claim. If a debtor fails to show up, it is often grounds for a default judgment. This allows the creditor to schedule an inquest or hearing to present information to the court without your presence; meaning you won’t be able to defend yourself while they present supporting documents of their claim. Keep in mind, there are consequences that follow a default judgment. The creditor may obtain a judgment order that allows them to seize assets, property or wage garnishment to satisfy outstanding credit card debt . Some states have regulations in place that protect certain items or assets from being seized by creditors for unsecured debt. you need to speak w/a lawyer NOW !!! do not even try to file for BK til you have counsel

Investors were bracing for what looked to be an inevitable "credit event" that analysts said could arrive within days -- before a "refinancing and restructuring" of the debt called for by President Nicolas Maduro. While the country's isolation means the risk of contagion to international financial markets is limited, a default cou
US sanctions help push Venezuela to default US sanctions against Venezuela have accelerated the already catastrophic decline of the oil-rich nation's economy, and are pushing it to a debt default that economists say could happen as early as this week. The aim of the latest US action is to choke off funding to Venezuela by blocking access to foreign currency. The Trump administration announced the latest sanctions against Caracas on August 24 after labeling Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro a "dictator." They follow an earlier set imposed July 31.
