One Response to “bankruptcy”

, A licensed trustee said:

Unfortunately, I can’t simply tel you whether or not you should file for bankruptcy. Given the facts as you have set them out, it is certainly an option, but there are a couple of others you may want to consider.

I suggest you contact a trustee in your area and make arrangments to go and speak to them. Ask them about being “creditor proof” – it may be that the trustee will advise you to do nothing at all, or after speaking to them, you may decide to file for bankruptcy after all.

Good luck sorting this out.
