Fighting Against Bankruptcy Fraud

Last updated on April 6, 2023

Evidence of fraud can result in a creditor challenge of a bankruptcy debt. But under the law, fraud can mean many things. In such instances, it is good to have a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney on your side who can refute creditor allegations of fraud.

Some Factors Judges Look At To Determine Fraud

When deciding whether a credit debt came about due to fraud, judges will look at various factors. It could involve the time between a filing and the credit card charges. They consider the amount of credit card charges, the financial circumstances of the individual making the charges, etc. They may even look at whether you used the credit card to purchase necessities or luxury items. Such factors vary from state to state. California’s rules may differ from other states.
