Myth: I Can Keep My Credit Card Account That Is Paid And Current.

Unfortunately, the bankruptcy code requires you to disclose and include all your debts and obligations, and accordingly, all credit accounts will be listed on your schedules and give notice of your bankruptcy case filing. As a result, all open credit accounts will be closed at the time of filing.

The bankruptcy code was drafted with the intent to prohibit or dissuade clients from paying one debt over another preferentially. To many of our Northwest Georgia clients’ surprise, this rule extends beyond just credit or signature accounts to include loans from family members. Accordingly, if you owe money to family members, you should disclose them on your schedules like any other creditor and discharge them as a part of your case. You are prohibited from paying back family members outside of the bankruptcy, no matter what the circumstances are.

The good news is that you can keep your bank account and your debit card. You are also permitted to open a new or additional bank account if you prefer. Bankruptcy protection keeps your bank account safe from creditors taking any direct payments or monies from your account while you are under bankruptcy protection.

Many of our clients in Rome, Dalton, and Cartersville are account executives or salespeople whose jobs required them to have a credit card to cover travel or job related expenses. If your job requires it, we can petition the court for permission to use a business credit card with you as the authorized user.

Talk to an attorney at Bournakis & Mitchell, PC today, to discuss how these rules affect your case. Find out if a bankruptcy can help you protect your bank account and discharge your debts, so that you can receive the fresh start that you deserve.
