4 comments to Banks May Freeze Your Accounts After Bankruptcy Filing: Move It or Lose It

  • Amanda

    When you file bankruptcy, remove funds and close account with a bank you owe money to, is it possible to ever go back to that bank? I miss the bank I was with, but I’m paranoid about them being able to somehow come back at me, freeze my account or something of that sort.

    Can a bank freeze your account or take your assets after after you are discharged from a bankruptcy?

    • If the debts were discharged in bankruptcy, a creditor cannot take any collection action against the debtor. Such action is a violation of the Bankruptcy Code and potentially federal and state fair debt collection practices statutes. However, there are certain debts that are not generally dischargeable in bankruptcy, such as student loans and some taxes. If the debt is a non dischargeable debt, the creditor can collect after discharge. You should immediately seek the advice of an attorney.
