In bankruptcy, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. §548 (section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code), a fraudulent transfer is any transfer of any asset--or any interest in any asset (such as part ownership in a home)-- made within two (2) years prior to filing the bankruptcy case and in which either of the following are true: A. The transfer was made with actual intent to hinder, delay, or defraud any entity to which the debtor was or later became indebted to; OR B. the debtor received less than reasonably equivalent value for the exchange AND was insolvent on the date the transfer was made (or became insolvent as a result of the transfer). There are actual several other bases for the transfer to be considered fraudulent, but these are the most common.
