A customer filed bankruptcy and was discharged. She owed me

This answer was rated:

A customer filed bankruptcy and was discharged. She owed me a debt, but did not list it on the bankruptcy schedules. I know in theory I should be able to collect the debt, but do some bankruptcy districts permit unsecured debts not listed to be discharged? The bankruptcy is in Minnesota.


Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.


This is a common situation,


If the debt was acquired prior to the bankruptcy,


and was not listed due to a mistake or error by the debtor, if the debtor obtained a no assets chapter 7 discharge,


the debt would also be considered discharged, even if not listed.


Thank you so much. Unfortunately, I see this frequently, and am not always sure what I can do.
