What is a Federal Bankruptcy Fraud Crime? 

Federal Bankruptcy Fraud is known as a white collar crime. Anyone who knowingly or intentionally obtains property or other assets from bankruptcy proceedings, states false oath or false proof of claim OR anyone who conceals, destroys, or falsifies documents relating to bankruptcy and withholding documents may be found guilty of a bankruptcy crime. 

Title 17 U.S.C  § 157 describes Bankruptcy fraud as a person having devised or intending to devise a scheme or artifice to defraud for the purpose of executing – or even attempting to execute – bankruptcy fraud; such as filing a petition including fraudulent involuntary petition, files a document in proceeding under title 11 or makes false representation, claim, or promise in relation to a proceeding under title 11 at any time shall be fined and/or face imprisonment. 

Basically – it’s illegal to represent yourself as bankrupt or to file for bankruptcy unless you are truly, actually facing bankruptcy. If you mislead people or forge documents to appear bankrupt when you’re not, it is a serious crime. 


Bankruptcy fraud is a very serious crime. 

If you’re found guilty of federal bankruptcy fraud you could be facing up to 5 years in prison and fines up to $250,000. 


Federal criminal cases are very serious and complex. 

It is important to have a knowledgeable and passionate attorney to represent your case and protect your future.

Federal Bankruptcy Fraud Defense Strategies 

Of course, our goal is to prove that you are not actually committing bankruptcy fraud. How do we do this, though? There are a couple of defense strategies that we use to prove this. 

We need to prove that you are not involved in a ‘bust-out scheme,’ meaning that you are racking up credit cards and other debt and then relying on bankruptcy law to get out of paying that debt. We also work to prove that you didn’t defraud or lie in any bankruptcy proceeding.

    In one of the most stressful times in my life, Rossen Law Firm was there for me. Leaving no stone unturned they provided patience and knowledge in every detail of my case. I’m very thankful and proud of this law firm family and especially of my lawyer, Scott Simmons for guiding, defending and helping me in every way possible. He and this law firm family come highly recommended from personal experience!!!

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
