The Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure require you or your attorney to certify that your petition is not filed “for any improper purpose, such as to harass or to cause unnecessary delay.” Bankruptcy is intended as a tool for dealing with debts that cannot otherwise be paid. You should not file a bankruptcy petition for the sole reason of delaying a creditor’s actions.
