Debtors and creditors rights in bankruptcy discharge

Coming to the decision to file for bankruptcy is never easy. You may feel like you are admitting defeat or that you are beginning a process from which your financial credibility will never recover, but the truth is that a personal bankruptcy is simply a legal way for Texas residents to find relief from crushing debt. So you have finally decided to file for bankruptcy, but you are still concerned about the process, and you're worried about your rights as a debtor. Don't worry; we have you covered.

Some of the most frequently asked questions in bankruptcy include the rights of debtors and creditors in a discharge. First, it is important to note that not all debts can be discharged. Some tax claims, familial obligations such as child support, fines or penalties owed to the government and some housing fees are some of the debts that you cannot discharge. You can find a more comprehensive list in the above-mentioned article.

When it comes to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, creditors have some rights regarding the discharge process. For example, creditors may file an objection, usually because of failure to provide certain relevant financial information such as concealing books or tax documents. This objection will then go to trial, where the creditor filing for objection must prove the facts of the objection.

As you can see, bankruptcy is not guaranteed. Depending on your circumstances, you may not be able to discharge your debts. However, in most cases, you will only be denied a discharge if you are hiding some of your financial information. Consulting with a bankruptcy attorney and fully disclosing your financial state will often lead to a successful bankruptcy case and successful discharges.
