Can I omit a creditor from my bankruptcy?
What if I owe my brother money but I don’t want him to know that I am going bankrupt.
My trustee has said that the money I have already paid him must be mentioned in my claim and a letter sent to him. I do not want to do this.
Can I go to a different trustee?
If you have already signed the documents then you are in bankruptcy and cannot go to a different trustee.
If you have not signed any documents then you can go to a different trustee.
I must caution you, that even if you go to a different trustee you still must declare the debt to your brother and the trustee must send him a notice.
If you do not declare the debt and are found out there are serious consequences to violating the bankruptcy laws.
