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.
