I am considering bankruptcy because of a divorce of three years ago and a ton of bad joint debt.....with child support and all I could no longer keep up....the only reason I do not file for bankruptcy is tha my new fiance has a joint credit line with me and I am scared if I file bankruptcy they will hurt her credit and take away the credit, she is the primary. And the main thing I am asking is if it was to go as far as siezing property which scares the hell out of me, do they just take everything? and how do they prove that it belongs to me? Everything in the house is not mine.
