Bankruptcy Myths that might surprise you:

In the current economic climate, many individuals are seeking debt relief by declaring bankruptcy. Any person considering filing for bankruptcy should inform himself or herself about the facts of bankruptcy. The bankruptcy attorneys at Bailey & Gunderson have found that there is much erroneous information that circulates on the subject of bankruptcy, and some of the myths may include the following:

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Allows the Discharge of All Debts

Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the discharge of certain personal debts like credit cards, lines of credit, personal loans and promissory notes. However, certain debts are not dischargeable such as child & spousal support, some income taxes, student loans, damages following an automobile accident where alcohol was involved, and unpaid court fines.

Everything Will be Lost in Bankruptcy

There are bankruptcy exemptions that will allow you to keep certain assets. The exemptions will protect your assets from creditors. Certain life insurance policies, retirement plans, certain wages, certain real estate, certain automobiles, tools you may use for work, and household items & furniture are examples of assets you may retain under the bankruptcy exemptions.

I Make Too Much Money to File Bankruptcy

Your income is a consideration in a bankruptcy. Income over a certain level may prevent you from filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, however, you may be able to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to effectively deal with your debt problems. The bankruptcy attorneys at Bailey & Gunderson can advise you which bankruptcy you are eligible to file and why.
