43. Can I choose which debts and assets to include in my bankruptcy petition?

No. You must disclose all of your property and all of your debts to the bankruptcy court. This includes debt owed to family or friends, debts you intend to keep paying, and property you hope to keep. You will be certifying under penalty of perjury that all of your assets and liabilities are listed when you sign your petition and when you appear at the Meeting of Creditors.
