Suspension of Bankruptcy Discharge

February 26th 2020

A widow came to see us, when the administration of her late husband’s estate could not proceed, because her husband was an undischarged bankrupt at the time of his death. The husband had been made bankrupt many years ago and the known creditors and the costs of the bankruptcy had been paid from the proceeds of sale of a property by the trustee in bankruptcy.

Despite payment of the bankruptcy debts and costs, no-one had dealt with the fact that the husband’s discharge from bankruptcy had been suspended indefinitely at the time when the property had been sold. We were successful in obtaining an order discharging the husband from bankruptcy in a quick and efficient manner; without the need for any court hearings.
