recently filed for bankruptcy

May 6th, 2008 by Questions

I filed for bankruptcy more than a week ago. I noticed that I have one unsecured store credit card (limit $ 4000.00) that I forgot to disclose although it has no balance and a secured credit card that I opened a few days before I filed for bankruptcy with a limit of 500 dollars. Is it ok for me to use these cards during bankruptcy? Am going to have a problem during the discharge process because I have these credit cards active while in bankruptcy? Thanks for your information.

Absolutey not. All of your credit cards were required to be destroyed and turned over to your trustee as part of the bankruptcy. If you keep and use these credit and any one of your creditors or trustee becomes aware of this then you will not be eligible for discharge. So you need to take these cards into your trustee immediately.
