Best Answer

That type of allegaton might be subject to a criminal investigation. However, the BK court has no jurisdiction over such a matter.

If the partner was allegeding that a debt was owed him due to the embezzlement, the Bankruptcy Court would certainly have jurisdiction to hold the debt is non-dischargeable as arising from fraud. Fraudulently obtained debt is not dischargeable in Bankruptcy.

NO. The Bankruptcy court would not "buy the accusation at face value." He would hear your argument and the ex-partner's and would rule on the side of the person who prevailed by a preponderence of the evidence. The burden to prove fraud would be on the ex-partner. So if it was 50-50, you should win.

What are the types of bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a court proceeding under a federal statute called the "Bankruptcy Code". The Bankruptcy Code allows persons or other entities in financial distress relief from some or all of that person's debt. Bankruptcies are administered through a separate federal court called the United States Bankruptcy Court. There are several types of bankruptcies. For individuals, the two main types of bankruptcy filings are cases under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. Chapter 7 cases are also referred to as "liquidation" cases. Chapter 13 cases are commonly referred to as "debt adjustment" or "wage earner" cases. Individuals can also be eligible for Chapter 11 reorganization, but Chapter 11 is normally used by debtors in business or debtors with extremely high amounts of debt. Farmers can also file a separate type of bankruptcy available only to farmers under Chapter 12 of the Bankruptcy Code. The word "Chapter" is simply a reference to a chapter number in the Bankruptcy Code. Bankruptcy is a court proceeding under a federal statute called the "Bankruptcy Code".

A bankruptcy can not be wiped off your credit report until after 10 years but if the accounts on your credit report which were discharged in the bankruptcy can these be taken off?

The debts which were wiped out in bankruptcy still stay on your credit report, but they should be listed as "Discharged in bankruptcy." They will still stay on your credit for 7 years (they don't get extended to 10 years like the Chapter 7 just because they were discharged in bankruptcy).
