\”new\” debt prior to bankruptcy
July 31st, 2007 by Questions
My bankruptcy is due to be discharged any day now. I have recently (within the last week) become aware of a government debt that I had no previous knowledge of. This was an overpayment of EI while I was on maternity leave. The debt is quite substantial – a few thousand dollars. This debt dates back to 2004, and I filed for bankruptcy in 2006. Had I been aware of the debt I would have included it in the bankrtupcy. Since I just found out about it, is there any way to have it included in the bankruptcy? My trustee tells me no, but others have told me to seek a 2nd opinion.
