October 21st, 2008 by Questions

i have a co-signer on my credit card, when i declare bankruptcy will that person become liable for the amount on my creditcard, or will the creditcard be taken care of without involving that person?

If you have a co-signer on a credit card if you declare bankruptcy that co-signer will be fully resonsible for the outstanding balance on the card. That is the responsibility a co-signer takes on, they have verified that the debt will be paid in full irrespective of what happens to the other party.
