15 Questions Answered

Q. How can I find a copy of my brankruptcy filing dated Aug 10, 2010?
A: You can obtain a copy of your bankruptcy paperwork by either contacting your bankruptcy attorney or contacting the bankruptcy court where your petition was filed to obtain a copy. In both cases, there may be a fee associated with obtaining that information.
Q. Need a bankruptcy attorney but I’m on social security any low income help?
A: Hello. If you only have social security income and your assets are exempt under the new mexico state exemption laws you may not even need to file bankruptcy. Your social security income may not be garnished by creditor and if your assets are exempt those cannot be taken either. Your creditors may be able so sue you but they are not able to collect money or assets from you. To be sure about your situation, its always best to consult with a bankruptcy attorney and most bankruptcy attorneys do not charge for the initial consultation. I hope this helps you.
Q. My father is a cosigner on my car. If I file chapter 7 will it effect him? I want to keep the car. Payments are current.
A: If you plan to keep the car and continue making payments, then your father will not be affected by you filing bankruptcy. However, if you fail to make the payments and they eventually repossess the vehicle then that will negatively impact him since he is equally liable for the debt you have incurred.
