I am about to be garnished for my full check for 2 and a half months.
I am wondering if I can apply for a loan to survive. If I get the loan I am okay. If I don't get the loan, will having applied for it prevent me from filing for bankruptcy?

What problems will this cause my relative if I file.
answered on Feb 3, 2020
As long as the relative is making the payments it won't have any affect on them. You will no longer be obligated on the vehicle and they will just have to make sure and stay current on the payments.

If you are not using a homestead exemption (because you rent your residence) then you likely have plenty to cover $12K of equity in a car. You can use the 4K... Read more »
