Can My Creditor Challenge My Discharge?

The reality is, yes, there can be challenges or objections to discharging debt in a Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy. There are two types of challenges, which include:

  • Dischargeability challenge: When a creditor objects to the discharge of its claim for reasons such as fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, intent to cause harm and more. For instance, if an individual runs up charges on their credit card within the 90 day time period prior to filing bankruptcy.
  • Discharge objections: Objections based on bankruptcy fraud. These are typically rare, but can happen. This may occur because an individual failed to turn over certain documents to the trustee or failed to disclose an asset, or if there was general misconduct involved in the bankruptcy.

In order to prevent challenges, it is important to work with an experienced lawyer who is familiar with a bankruptcy from all angles. At our firm, we dedicate our entire practice to bankruptcy matters.
