Denial or Revocation of Discharge

Defending an adversary proceeding by the Chapter 7 trustee or the U.S. Trustee to deny the debtor a discharge as to all of his debts.

A Debtor can be denied the discharge of all of his debts if he files schedules that deliberately misstates the Debtor’s income or property or debts. This is a very difficult Adversary Proceeding for the Trustee to win.

The denial of the discharge of all debts is known as the “death penalty of bankruptcy”. Even deliberate errors and omissions are not enough unless they are extensive and major. It takes a skilled lawyer to present this law to the Bankruptcy Court.
