Common Bankruptcy Mistakes
Dealing with overwhelming debt can be a tremendously stressful challenge. Bankruptcy protection offers some measure of relief in many instances, but bankruptcy law and the filing process can be confusing for an individual who is not familiar with them. This can lead to potentially costly errors if someone chooses to pursue a bankruptcy filing without the help of a knowledgeable attorney or advisor. The consequences of a mistake might include the denial of your petition, or even, in some cases, allegations of an intentional attempt to defraud your creditors or to deceive the bankruptcy court.
