Legal Answers
38 Questions Answered

Q. I owned a consignment store. Do I have to file bankruptcy on each consigner I owe money to? I am in the process.
A: You must include all debts to any debtors. Any debts that are dischargeable will most likely be discharged if your bankruptcy is successful.
Q. I was injured in a car accident a couple years ago and suffered a brain injury that makes it impossible for me to work
A: Getting your student loans discharged is more difficult than a straight bankruptcy, so only someone who’s really familiar with it can offer counsel and represent you in court. You can find reputable attorneys by asking for a referral from someone you trust. Or, you can look at online reviews of attorneys in your area.
Q. If I file for bankruptcy, do I choose which chapter to file myself?
A: When you file for bankruptcy you need to evaluate your situation carefully, weigh the alternatives, and determine with the help of a lawyer the Chapter that best suits your case.
Q. I faked a judge's autograph and sent a subpoena, is that a crime?
A: Yes, that is the crime of forgery. According to Colorado state law, as part of a protection order due to domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault, physical harm/threats or abuse of the elderly, the judge can order that the abuser not have or buy any firearms or ammunition for the duration of the order.
Q. Do child support obligations disappear if you file for bankruptcy? I really can't afford them.
A: Child support payments usually cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. This means that if you owe child support, you cannot escape this duty by filing for bankruptcy.
Q. In 2012 I filed for a BK chapter 7. Included was a piece of land in Ashville NC. The mortgage stopped sending me bills.
A: Your Bankruptcy Chapter 7 discharge wipes out the obligation to pay back the loan; however, it doesn’t eliminate the mortgage lien. The tax laws are far too complicated for borrowers to understand and it's essential to get expert tax advice to sort through the confusing complications.
Q. What can you do if your employer deducts from your paycheck for garnishment before the date they stated it will begin.
A: You can protest a wage garnishment by filing papers with the court to get a hearing date where you can present evidence that you need more of your paycheck to pay your expenses or that you qualify for an exemption. The judge can terminate the garnishment or leave it in place.
Q. Can my car be repossessed if I file for bankruptcy? It's my only source of income, so I don't want to dig myself in
A: The bankruptcy will most likely help you keep your car, but how you keep it may depend on which chapter you file. If you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can pay off defaulted payments on the loan within 3 to 5 years. If you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will need to negotiate payment arrangements with the creditor.
Q. Is there a simple way for me to check to see if I qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or do I have to speak to an
A: If your income is less than the median income for a household of your size in your state, you can file for Chapter 7. If not, things get complicated. You can try filling out the means test forms that are available online on the U.S. Bankruptcy Court’s website - http://www.uscourts.gov/forms/means-test-forms/chapter-7-means-test-calculation
