Frequently Asked Questions About Bankruptcy

Q:

I know the law changed. Can I still file for bankruptcy?

A:

The Bankruptcy Code was revised greatly in 2005. However, it is still possible for many people to file for bankruptcy. It is important to consult with a bankruptcy attorney to fully assess whether your income, assets and types of debts make you a good candidate for bankruptcy.

Q:

Do I have to give up my house, car and retirement savings to file for bankruptcy?

A:

No. Each situation is unique, but the main goal in filing for bankruptcy is to protect your assets that might not otherwise be safe from your creditors outside of bankruptcy. The Bankruptcy Code allows you to keep certain assets. In order to be sure that bankruptcy will let you protect your property and get a fresh start, it is important to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.

Q:

If I file for bankruptcy, will my credit be ruined forever?
