Line of Credit

November 19th, 2007 by Questions

Approximately 6 years ago my father co-signed for a $30,000 line of credit from my bank that I was to use for university and residence fees because they wanted me to have the `full experience`. All of the money was gone in a year and a half. We are struggling to make payments on it, and have since bought a home in the area (my name, my father`s name, and my mother`s names all on the deed/mortgage) to try and temper living costs. With my graduation near I find that it will be completely impossible to make enough money with what education I have to pay for the line of credit (which will have interest + principal due when I`m no longer a student) plus my utilities and upkeep, nevermind trying to start a life independent of my financially drowning parents. Would declaring bankruptcy simply stick my father with my line of credit debt?

You are correct, if you have any debt that is jointly signed by your father and file a bankruptcy, this would effectively clear you from the debt but your father would still be responsible.
