Objection to Dischargeability ( Bankruptcy) Law and Legal Definition

Under Bankruptcy laws an objection to dischargeability refers to an objection that is raised by a creditor or trustee to a dischargeable debt. Objection is against the discharge of a debtor from his/her personal liability towards a debt. Under bankruptcy laws a debtor gets discharged from certain debts upon the filing of bankruptcy petition. In some cases, a creditor or a trustee objects to such discharge and argue that the debt should not be discharged. Such objection is called an objection to dischargeability. The objection must be supported by a valid reason. Valid reasons include allegations such as debtor’s fraud and false pretence by a debtor to obtain the debt.
