Can a debt, once
discharged by the Bankruptcy Court, be
revoked and the petitioner be compelled to
repay all or a portion of the debt? It is a
common concern among people who have had
their debts discharged under
Chapter 7 or
Chapter 13 bankruptcy. After all, after
so many years buried in deep debt, it may be
difficult to believe that you are finally
clear of creditors' collections actions.
U.S. Bankruptcy Code provides for a
discharge revocation only under three
- If the creditor can prove that the
petitioner fraudulently withheld
financial information, or provided false
information. If the deliberate act of
fraud can be shown to have affected the
decision to discharge the debt, the
creditor may legitimately seek a
revocation of the debt.
- If the debtor, through an act of
deliberate fraud, acquires property or
assets that are the property of the
estate and does not report or surrender
the asset to the bankruptcy trustee.
- When the petitioner refused to obey
an order of the court, relative to the
decision to discharge a particular debt.
Can a Debt Discharge Be Revoked?
Probably Not, if You Acted in Good Faith.
Fraud or deliberate
contempt of Bankruptcy Code laws is the
common factor in all three instances of a
possible revocation of a
discharge. In most cases, creditors will
not have sufficient grounds to pursue a
revocation if fraud cannot be proven, or if
the amount of discharge is not sufficient to
pursue a complaint.
