Debts Owed to Relatives

Can I repay debts owed to relatives before filing for bankruptcy?

Yes, you can, although, it’s not recommended. If you do repay a relative, the trustee will more than likely sue the relative in order to receive that money that you paid that relative. He will do that in order to apply that all your creditors evenly. Our advice is to not repay relatives prior to filing for bankruptcy without consulting an attorney first.
