lawyer-In-new-jerseyIf you are struggling with high debt and thinking about bankruptcy, it is important that you maintain all of your financial records. Under 11 U.S.C. § 727, a debtor can be denied a bankruptcy discharge if they do not have sufficient records to allow creditors to make a complete investigation of their financial status. Examples of the documents that you will be requested to produce are your last six months of pay stubs and your recent tax returns.
