A: Hello. If you only have social security income and your assets are exempt under the new mexico state exemption laws you may not even need to file bankruptcy. Your social security income may not be garnished by creditor and if your assets are exempt those cannot be taken either. Your creditors may be able so sue you but they are not able to collect money or assets from you. To be sure about your situation, its always best to consult with a bankruptcy attorney and most bankruptcy attorneys do not charge for the initial consultation. I hope this helps you.
