Bankruptcy Bads – What Not To Do
Deciding to file a Bankruptcy is one of the most emotional and stressful decisions that you will face in your life. The complexity of the process leads many people to do things in advance of filing that they would not normally do. With this said your best course of action is to make sure that you hire a skilled Bankruptcy Lawyer to guide you through the process and help you avoid those things that lead to problems:
- Running up credit cards because you think your debts will simply be discharged
- Transferring property out of your name to avoid losing them during bankruptcy
- Cashing in retirement funds to help reduce assets
- Ignoring pending lawsuits thinking that the bankruptcy will stop them
- Paying back money owed to family and friends and ignoring creditors
- Withholding information from a lawyer and hiding assets
The mistakes outlined above are just some of those people tend to make just before filing. Most don’t really seem to be a problem but believe me they are. Anything you do prior to filing will be looked at by the Bankruptcy Trustee and could, if not done within the law, cause the Bankruptcy petition to be denied. Moreover, certain transfers done for less then the value of the transferred property, and within a certain look back period can be voided costing you and the transferee.
