My bankruptcy case was filed in 2015. I went to overseas before the bankruptcy case and have never return to Malaysia since then. My passport is valid until 2019. My husband is a foreigner. We registered our marriage in Malaysia. My husband makes all income. I'm not working and have 2 children, both holding Malaysian passport. Me or my children never apply for permanent residency or citizenship in another country.

This bankruptcy case was due to my father's company which I have my name in it but I did not work there. I am mentioning this in hope of getting correct answers for my questions below.
There are lots of details I have to fill in the form before the first interview (BORANG TEMUKENAL). I have to fill in all my personal information, my husband and children information, also in the form it mention if I have a valid passport and I have to surrender it to Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia (JIM).

1. I've read from online news that the Bankruptcy Act has changed. Should I go back to meet with JIM for the first interview? And apply to work overseas at the same time? So I could get a new passport with 5 years validity? Will I have problem with my application to work overseas based on my current situation? How long will the process take?

2. Let said if I go back to Malaysia now by land and report to Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia without telling them I have a valid passport but instead tell them my passport was lost if they ask, will they find out I just returned from overseas? Can I exit Malaysia by land route using Malaysian IC at the Malaysia-Thailand border and after I enter Thailand, then I use my passport, is that possible? I am worried if I am unable to exit Malaysia again because both my children are now living overseas.

There are some forms to fill in before the first interview and it mentions if I have valid passport I have to surrender it to Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia.

3. I have checked my passport status here: for the past 2 years until now and the results are always TIADA HALANGAN. Why? I already seen the notice in the newspapers and received the bankruptcy file number.

4. An automatic discharge of the bankruptcy after three years from submitting his statement of affairs and subject to achieving the target contribution set by the Director General of Insolvency (DGI) and having rendered an account of monies and property to the DGI. Will I be discharged 100% of the bankruptcy?

Up to you to believe or not. I have answered all of the above:

Answers to the above:
1. Permission from Jabatan Insolvensi Malaysia to be given before they issue you a new 5 years passport with restricted travel. As for overseas work application, I have spoken.

2. Under bankruptcy laws you can be jailed for telling lies. You can be banned without passport for at least 10 years. With your children overseas you can take this risk if you want to. Travel with Malaysian IC at Changlun is not for you. Trust me. If you play play with bankruptcy laws and international travel laws, a possible jail term can await you. Owing monies or being a bankrupt, no jail term.

3. I know the possible answer but not for me to speculate.

4. Pass.. let some kind soul who can assure you of a 100% chances of successful application of bankruptcy discharge.

Can some kind soul please help her. She is tired of hearing from one person only.
