When is not appropriate to file for bankruptcy?

If your debts were acquired under dishonest circumstances—you borrowed money by not giving honest information to the creditor, or you received a loan by dishonest means—then the court will deny you bankruptcy.

It also may not be appropriate to file for bankruptcy depending on your unique financial circumstances. Before making the decision to file, you should speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to determine whether bankruptcy or an alternative is right for you.
