Can I Pay for My Bankruptcy with a Credit Card?

You can pay for your bankruptcy with a debit card or with another person’s credit card, but not with YOUR credit card.  You shouldn’t use your credit cards for at least 90 days before you file for bankruptcy.  The credit card company can object to the discharge of debts incurred within 90 days of filing (longer, if luxury items).

 

Don’t run up your credit cards before filing for bankruptcy, either.  Same issue:  the creditor can object to the discharge of that debt and you’ll wind up having to pay it back.
