About this template
This legal template is a proposed order granting a motion objecting to the discharge of an individual Chapter 7 debtor under Sections 727(a)(8) and (9) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code is a liquidation bankruptcy, where a debtor's non-exempt assets are sold to repay creditors. However, not all debts can be discharged or eliminated through bankruptcy. Sections 727(a)(8) and (9) of the Bankruptcy Code cover specific grounds for objection to the discharge of a debtor.

Section 727(a)(8) pertains to the debtor's failure to explain the loss of assets, including destruction, concealment, fraudulent transfers, or perjury, which hinder the administration of the bankruptcy case. If it is evident that the debtor intentionally attempted to hide assets, transfer them fraudulently, or deceive the court, the trustee or creditor may object to the debtor's discharge.

Section 727(a)(9) addresses instances where a debtor has failed to provide, at the trustee's request, sufficient records pertaining to the debtor's financial situation. The court may deny discharge if the debtor fails to cooperate fully or neglects to provide proper documentation and information required during the bankruptcy process.

This proposed order aims to grant the motion objecting to the debtor's discharge based on these specific violations as outlined in Sections 727(a)(8) and (9) of the Bankruptcy Code. The document will outline the reasons for objection, provide supporting evidence, and request the court to deny the discharge.

Ultimately, this legal template serves as a framework for an order that allows the party submitting the motion to assert their objections to the Chapter 7 debtor's discharge based on the grounds set forth in Sections 727(a)(8) and (9) of the Bankruptcy Code.
