old checks and new credit cards
February 5th, 2008 by Questions
hello, i have two questions to ask. first a little about me, i am unemployed at this time and my babiesfather is supporting me and his children. (we are not married). i was wondering how i should apply his income to my bankruptcy case? he buys everything we need like food and toiletries. do i list no income and tell the trustee that he pays for all or should it be listed as `other income`, even though he never hands any cash directly to me? also i have a bounced check from three years ago. i tried at the time to make a payment to them but they denied payment, should i pay them off first and then file bankruptcy? i also got two new credit cards in the last two months, and after a job fell through on me i relied onmy childrens father to pay the bill. both cards are only 500 dollars, i want to know if he can pay them off in full for me before i file or should i file and reaffirm these cards as i do want to keep them and do intend on paying them? or would this be `prefernecing?` i really need help on what to do as i am lost?
i want to do everything right so its important to know before i file.
