Filing for Bankruptcy? Here’s What You Should Never Do

1. Only Pay Off Specific Creditors

When people in debt make it a point to pay off a specific creditor, this is considered a preferential transfer. Certain creditors cannot be preferred over others according to the law, and trustees can even sue if they feel a preferential transfer has taken place. It’s best to wait for the bankruptcy case to play out before you begin to pay outstanding debt.

2. Put More Money Into Your Bank Account

Gifts or money afforded by friends and relatives should not be deposited, as this can negatively impact the decision of the bankruptcy court. You should also keep business transactions separate from your personal account.

3. Rely on Credit Cards

Once bankruptcy proceedings begin, it’s best to stop all credit card activity immediately. While the use of debit cards is OK, using credit cards during bankruptcy could appear irresponsible, especially if unnecessary luxury purchases are made, such as TVs or clothing.
