O is for Objection to Discharge

Just because you file you bankruptcy doesn’t mean you will get your discharge. For various reasons, the court can sustain an objection to your discharge.

Some denials are automatic, such as filing another bankruptcy too soon or not getting your credit counseling before filing.

Some denials are based on a debtor’s bad actions, such as incurring a lot of unsecured debt just before filing, incurring debts because of intoxication, or hiding assets or income from the trustee. These objections generally require a hearing before the judge where he/she will decide if the debtor’s actions merit a denial of discharge.

So, to avoid these problems with your case, make sure to talk to your attorney before making any major financial decisions before or during your bankruptcy.
