Queens Bankruptcy Fraud Lawyers: Your Guide to the Legal Process

Going through bankruptcy can be a stressful time. And if you’re accused of bankruptcy fraud on top of that? It can feel totally overwhelming. But with the right Queens bankruptcy fraud lawyer on your side, you don’t have to go through this alone.

In this article, we’ll walk you through the basics of bankruptcy fraud so you understand what you’re up against. We’ll also share tips on finding the best Queens bankruptcy fraud lawyer for your unique situation. Let’s dig in!

What is Bankruptcy Fraud?

Bankruptcy fraud refers to illegally hiding assets or lying on your bankruptcy paperwork. Some examples include:

  • Not disclosing all your assets
  • Hiding money in secret accounts
  • Lying about your income
  • Transferring property to friends or relatives so it won’t be seized

Yeah, it’s not good. The penalties for bankruptcy fraud are steep. You could face up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 in fines if convicted. Yikes!

Why You Need a Lawyer ASAP

Once you learn you’re being investigated for bankruptcy fraud, your first call should be to a lawyer. Seriously. Don’t try to handle this yourself.

A good Queens bankruptcy fraud lawyer can help in so many ways, like:

  • Negotiating with the bankruptcy trustee and creditors on your behalf
  • Gathering evidence and documents to build your defense
  • Exploring plea bargain options if appropriate
  • Defending you in court if it goes to trial

Having an experienced lawyer in your corner evens the playing field and gives you the best shot at the best outcome. So don’t go it alone!

Possible Defenses in Bankruptcy Fraud Cases

There are a few defenses that a skilled lawyer may use to fight bankruptcy fraud charges on your behalf:

  • Lack of Criminal Intent: This means you did not willfully and knowingly commit fraud. Mistakes or inadvertent omissions would fall under this category.
  • Reliance on Attorney Advice: If you made certain financial transfers or asset decisions based on your lawyer’s counsel, this may provide a defense.
  • Statute of Limitations: There is a 5-year limit on how long after the alleged fraud that charges can be filed.
  • Constitutional Rights Violations: If your rights were violated during searches or the investigation process, evidence may be thrown out.

An experienced lawyer will analyze the details of your case to determine the best defense strategies to pursue.

Don’t Go Through This Alone

Being accused of bankruptcy fraud feels scary and overwhelming. But with an experienced Queens bankruptcy fraud lawyer guiding you through the process, you don’t have to face it alone. Arm yourself with knowledge about the legal process. Interview lawyers to find the best fit. And lean on your lawyer’s expertise every step of the way. You’ve got this!
