A Bankruptcy Fresh Start Post Holidays: How holiday spending can impact your filing
It’s important to remember this holiday season, that spending behavior can affect your ability to discharge certain bankruptcy debts- particularly when purchases are put on credit cards. Credit card issuers who believe that some part of the debt owed to them was incurred by the purchaser without the intent to repay can come back and sue the debtor in their bankruptcy proceeding. Under Bankruptcy Code Section 523 the creditor can argue the debt was incurred by fraud and should survive the bankruptcy case.
As part of a New Year’s resolution, start by putting your credit cards away this holiday season and move to a “cash only” system. Get a fresh bankruptcy start by filing this New Year. We will stop creditor harassment and help you get back on your feet.
