Bankruptcy only if 500k in debt?

On January 17, 2012, in Bankruptcy, Debt settlement, by Robbie L. Vaughn, Esq.

Don’t file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy unless you have 500k in debt!

That’s pretty much what a radio show host recently said. We can’t see how this is good advice. There is no minimum amount of debt that one must have in order to file bankruptcy! Even more disturbing was the fact that the host appeared to be offering some sort of debt settlement guide or program they created.

First, Debt settlement can work, but you need money to settle! You have to be able to  make a lump sum or monthly payments.

Secondly, we have had clients with very little debt file bankruptcy. Many individuals file bankruptcy to prevent home foreclosure, head off an impending lawsuit, discharge a judgment obtained against them etc.

Finally, Bankruptcy is not for everyone. We suggest that you speak with an attorney about bankruptcy and debt settlement before making a final decision.
