Discharge Penalties

October 12th, 2008 by Questions

How long can a person`s bankruptcy be extended if one of the reasons for declaring bankruptcy is debts caused in part by gambling? Is there a time limit on how long it will be before eventually being disharged or does it depend on the caseload of the court system?
Thank you.

The court has an open ended ability to place restrictions on people. They can withhold a discharge indefinately, require monetary payments to be made, I have even seen a bankruptcy court require a certain number of community service hours (although I have only seen that once as it was quite unusual). The best thing to do is to contact your trustee and they will be able to give you an indication of what typically happens in your area.
