What is Bankruptcy Fraud?

 

Filing for bankruptcy is like pressing the 'financial reset button'. When a person files for bankruptcy they can have certain debts erased and essentially get a fresh, new start at life. Filing for bankruptcy involves an extensive amount of paperwork. When mistakes are made in that paperwork, they will sometimes be deemed to have been made in good faith and sometimes deemed to have been made deliberately. This can result in an investigation on you for bankruptcy fraud.

Federal Statute 18 USCA § 157 defines bankruptcy fraud as "having devised or intending to devise a scheme or artifice to defraud." If you or someone you know has been accused of bankruptcy fraud, you should contact a bankruptcy fraud defense attorney from NeJame Law immediately.

Common Types of Bankruptcy Fraud Concealment of assets (18 USCA § 152)
When filing for bankruptcy you are required to give an account of the assets that you have. If an individual knowingly and fraudulently makes false oaths or accounts about the assets they have, they can be convicted of bankruptcy fraud.
•  Multiple filings
You are allowed to file for bankruptcy on more than one occasion, but you must wait a certain amount of time between your filings. Failing to wait the required amount of time between bankruptcy filings can also result in you being convicted.
