How to make sure your bankruptcy discharge is accepted

When being crushed by overwhelming debt, many Texans turn to personal bankruptcy as a means of relief. There are myriad advantages available through both Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and you can choose which one is best suited to your circumstances.

But if you are going to make the effort to file for bankruptcy, you want to do all you can to ensure that the court will accept your request. As such, it is important to understand the reasons that your application could be rejected. The following are some things that could halt your quest for debt relief through bankruptcy:

  • Destroying financial records or books.
  • Hiding property.
  • Failing to take your mandatory credit counseling.
  • Failing to disclose a previous bankruptcy.
  • Making false statements, in writing or verbally, regarding your debts, assets, and earnings.
  • Violating a court order.

You could also be denied on the basis of having already received a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 discharge within a specified number of years. So if you have a prior bankruptcy, you will need to check your records and make sure that you're eligible to file again.

When it comes to filing for bankruptcy, you want to get it right the first time. A mistake or an oversight could put you all the way back to square one. And further delays could cause you to continue paying debts that you otherwise could have discharged or renegotiated.

In the interest of saving time and money, you may want to have your filing handled by a Texas bankruptcy attorney. An attorney can go over the process with you step by step to help ensure that you maximize the benefits that your debt relief plan has to offer.
