California Bankruptcy Attorney - Debtor Laws

When filing for bankruptcy in California, there are two concepts to keep in mind: transparency and complete disclosure. You must be completely transparent about any past financial dealings that could impact your bankruptcy, and you must disclose any and all financial transactions, assets, or holdings that are subject to bankruptcy law. If you can follow these two best practices, then you will fully comply with the debtor laws that are in place for California bankruptcy filing.

Most individuals who run into problems when filing for bankruptcy on their own do so because they fail to include all of the necessary information on their bankruptcy filing. Leaving out even one account, even if it is unintentional, can leave your case open to dismissal by the bankruptcy judge. And any omission of a creditor account could allow that creditor to continue to pursue collection activities after the bankruptcy is discharged.
