I have a house I owe $200K, worth 190K. I have 26k in credit debt, my husband is out of work but I have $126k in 401s. Can I still file and keep my 401? I am 57.
Yes, a 401k is an exempt asset in Illinois. You should consult with an attorney before taking any bankruptcy related steps because you may have more exemptions that can be used.See question
My sister is in a treatment program in McLean County but resides in DuPage County. Does she need to file in her home county?
The debtor files for bankruptcy in the County in which they have a permanent residence. In this case, if your sister has a permanent residence in DuPage County and has had that residence for at least 90 of the last 180 days, then that is where she can file. Please contact my office for a free consultation to discuss this and all other issues surrounding the bankruptcy.See question
