Information About Bankruptcy Fraud
When individuals or businesses have overwhelming debts and are unable to
repay their lenders, they may file a petition for bankruptcy for financial
relief and protection in the bankruptcy courts. During the bankruptcy
process, the petitioner is required to submit documentation and swear
under oath that the financial documents and statements are a true picture
of the financial situation.
True statements regarding assets, debts, liabilities and a formal Statement
of Financial Affairs are required by the court. It is fraudulent for a
petitioner to conceal assets, debts or pertinent documents. Likewise,
making false statements to the bankruptcy court is illegal. Failure to
disclose all property, property transfers, actual income, and actual debts
is against the law.
A person who lies in bankruptcy court may find an unsympathetic judge and
can receive a sentence of up to 5 years in prison and fines up to $250,000.
Added charges might include perjury since statements made by the defendant
in the bankruptcy court were under oath. The firm is experienced in criminal
defense and understands how the prosecution builds their cases. Thorough
case preparation and close attention to detail as well as careful examination
of evidence, are important components in building an aggressive defense
case. Make an appointment today!
