I have been a stay at home mom for the last five years but have still accumulated almost $10,000 in debt. My fiancée can no longer afford the payments on my credit cards as we had to use them quite a bit when he lost his job. I want to file bankruptcy but I have to keep my car as it is our family car.
Yes you can. I would make sure that you have health insurance so you don't incur any after bankruptcy debts. Remember, you can only file a ch 7 bankruptcy ince every 8 years.
Very possibly. You need to speak to a bankruptcy attorney practicing in your area to make sure your car is within exemptions.
