We often remind people of their greatest asset in their bankruptcy, their credibility. If at any point the Trustee decides that you are concealing assets or falsifying information in your petition you could lose property, be denied a Discharge of your debts, be forced to pay and/or be charged with a crime.
The thing is when you have knowledgeable attorneys representing your best interests, you can usually get the Discharge you need and still protect your property. Regardless, you need to be honest with your attorneys, that way if some of your property is at risk of being taken in the bankruptcy, we can discuss other possible solutions to your situation.
Many people are afraid of losing certain property in the bankruptcy process. Some people feel that if they just omit some information or distort the truth about their income, assets and/or debts that no one will know. This is the worst possible way to deal with the situation.
Trust in your attorney’s ability to protect and guide you. We strive to reassure you that we are always looking out for your best interests. We are here to guide you toward the best possible solution for your individual needs and support your decisions. We are looking out for you, that’s our job, so it is in your best interest to trust in us.
