Queens NY Bankruptcy Lawyer


Experienced Bankruptcy Attorney Serving Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, Nassau and Suffolk


I'VE BEEN TOLD BY FRIENDS THAT IF I'M GOING TO FILE BANKRUPTCY, I SHOULD CHARGE SOME MORE THINGS TO MY ACCOUNTS, REALLY?

Absolutely not. Charging things or taking loans not intending to pay for them, is the type of fraudulent conduct that makes a debt non-dischargeable.

How can creditors prove what your intent was?

They look at the dates of the charges and at the date of your filing bankruptcy. A Bankruptcy Judge isn't likely to believe that if you charged items shortly before filing Bankruptcy that you didn't have some idea you might be filing.

The key here is that the creditor will make a claim that you were still charging items even though you had no intention of paying them and/or knew that you couldn’t pay them.
