- who have not complied with the obligation to provide a statement of assets,
- who have made a statement of assets and liabilities and the list of assets and liabilities shows that repayment of the debt is not possible in full,
- who, according to the contents of the list of assets, could repay the debts in full, but have not provided evidence of full repayment within one month,
- whose insolvency proceedings have been dismissed for lack of assets, or
- whose discharge of residual debt has been refused or revoked.
