FAQ #10: Do I have to include all my bills when I file bankruptcy?
Yes. Every debt you owe must be completely and accurately disclosed in the documents filed to commence your bankruptcy case. Bankruptcy is not a "pick and choose" proceeding. You cannot not put some debts in and leave other debts out. Intentionally omitting debts from your bankruptcy case may result in the nondischargability of those debts, the dismissal of your bankruptcy case, fines, or imprisonment for bankruptcy fraud.
