New York Penal Law 185.00: Fraud in insolvency

Fraud of insolvency is a crime that involves mishandling property to for you to defraud creditors in a case where there is an impending insolvency or bankruptcy. Under the New York Penal Law 185:00, you are more likely to face insolvency fraud prosecution if you had the intention to defraud a creditor with your knowledge that you are on a brink to become insolvent or file bankruptcy.

2. Conceal, remove, destroy, or transfer a property that is part of the estate of the debtor, or substantial interest in the estate of the debtor.
3. Misinterpreted property the property existence that is part of the estate of the debtor. Misinterpretation of the property location that is part of the debtor’s estate misinterpretation of any legal information for the proper administration insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings.
Example
Rachel becomes unable to pay her bills. In this case, she is in debt for more than $500,000 to several other creditors. She is extremely aware that it is only a matter of time before the bankruptcy statement is filled. Rachel sold some of her property to the relatives for a less market value before the property is directed to the subject by a bankruptcy administrator. She also gave away some of her property. Rachel could be charged with insolvency fraud because she had the knowledge that she was about to be declared bankrupt.
