Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.
The creditors could object, and during an adversary proceeding, they could ask if you met with an attorney prior to doing those things.
Creditors can object for recent usage, especially luxury purchases.
The US Trustee can object if they feel the filing is an abuse of the process based on the information in the case.
I am not the one filing for bankruptcy...it is someone who was bragging about it in my and others prsence.
If you know of false information in the bankruptcy case (or lack of information too) you can write a letter to the trustee to inform them.
So we should not contact the creditors who were duped, just advise the Trustee?
Yes, the US Trustee would be the correct people to contact if you are aware of potential fraud or other issues in a case.

Did you have any other questions?
Thank you. Appreciate your assistance. Appalling that someone thinks it is such a feather in their cap to misuse bankruptcy to get out of paying for what they did not need but will keep as exempt property if they succeed.
I don't think so but then I don't know what firm you are with...LOL
Thanks again! Excellent!
It's people like you that keep the system working the way it should.the US Trustee will investigate the matter and will take if from there.
