I have listed some of the mistakes people make right before they file bankruptcy. People do these things because of mistaken information they got from someone else. Talk with your bankruptcy lawyer and ask questions. Your lawyer can protect you and your property as long as you tell them everything up front. Disclose all financial information to your attorney and prevent future surprises. You don’t want to end up losing the things you were trying to protect and save. If you have questions about the reasons why we don’t want you to do these things right before you file bankruptcy, call us. Once you hear the explanation, everything will make sense . Some of these thing you can do, you just need to wait for the right time.
