what happends when you are bankrupt and after youre nine months you are told that you are not discharge?
so i keep filling out the monthy statements of income?


One Response to “discharge”

, A licensed trustee said:

That is certainly likely – it depends on why you weren’t discharged. If it is because of something you did (or more likely something that you failed to do) then the statements and payments represent a penalty that you have imposed on yourself for not completing your duties properly during your bankruptcy.

This may sound cold, but 3 out of 4 people that file perform all of their duties properly and are discharged as soon as they are eligible. The 4 person, for whatever reason, fails to perform all of their duties and therefore their bankruptcy is extended until they do. In our area, the extension may run 3 to 6 months and require the person to attend in Court (to explain why they didn’t do what they were supposed to do in the first place).

If you did not receive your discharge at the end of nine months then I suggest you go and see your trustee to find out what needs to be done in order to complete your bankruptcy – then do those things as quickly as possible.
