Business and Personal Bankruptcy

December 29th, 2008 by Questions

I have a small business which both my wife and I draw from. She is not an owner. We flow our vehicles through the business as well. Our house (w 3 children) is in my wife`s name. We are experiencing working capital problems with the business and I have amassed a personal debt on the business which is becoming seriously cumbersome. It has now affected my personal credit.

It feels like we`re going to lose EVERYTHING if I don`t change things. What are my options here? Is bankrupting me personally the answer, to help the business and our family survive???

This is a question you will have to discuss personally with a local trustee. When you are looking at two potentially separate legal entities (i.e. you and potentially the business depending on how it is set up) there are simply so many things to consider this venue doesn’t allow for sufficient detail. The trustee will have to look at both yours and your business’s cash flow, assets, and liabilities to start, so it would be helpful for you to bring as much of that information with you when you do sit down with the trustee.
