Q: Regarding Bankruptcy. I live in California.
I never have filed for bankruptcy and I'm thinking I need to. I need to know if this is the right thing to do. I also owe back rent and would like to know if that would be included?
A: Bank rent can be included in bankruptcy. About how much back rent do you owe and how much other debt do you owe? Do you have income? What assets do you have? These are some questions that have to be answered to determine if bankruptcy is a good option for you.
A: Try calling and speaking to bankruptcy attorneys. Most offer free consultations.
A: You should sit down with a local bankruptcy attorney who can go over your whole situation and give you the options available. With what you provided in your question there is not enough information to adequately answer in this forum.
A: There is much to consider regarding bankruptcy as an option for you. I suggest you contact an attorney for an initial discussion. Some of us offer a half hour no charge consultation which will provide information regarding your options.
