This is a difficult discussion to have without knowing how the business was set up. As a result it will be important for you to meet with a local trustee to discuss the details of the business structure and how it relates to the types of the debts you have.

However, the debts you list (lease, promissory note etc.) will likely be cleared with the bankruptcy. But to be sure, bring a list of all the creditors of yourself and the business with you when you meet the trustee and they will verify for you how the debts will be treated.
