I own a business and due to construction, I am unable to pay

Customer Question

I own a business and due to construction, I am unable to pay for the inventory I have purchased. In addition, I need money to buy new inventory if I am going to continue on in my business. No one will give me a loan. I believe my business is going to prosper, but not without financial assistance. My only choice now is to file bankruptcy. I live in Minnesota. I need to know what items they can take from me. If they take everything in my store, that will be fine. However, I need to know what they will take from my family. Can they take my home and car, furniture, TV, computer, etc.? Thank you. Sue

Thanks for your question!

I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet. The response rate on JustAnswer is usually over 95%, but sometimes questions go un-answered when:

1. the question may be unclear
2. the question seems to require an answer for something that cannot be explained online adequately
3. the Experts that are online simply don't have the resources to answer your question fully
4. the question price you selected is too low for the complexity of the question

Please feel free to re-word your question or increase the price if you feel that may be the reason. Of course you are not required to increase the price. :)

If you would still like to receive an answer from an Expert, just let me know, and I will do my best to assist you by finding an Expert to help you.

Definately not going to send more money. If you can't answer this question, you obviously should not be in the business you are. Here are my questions.

1. Can a business run as an LLC file bankruptcy without it affecting my personal credit?

2. If the answer is no, what items from my home are they allowed to take?

3. Specifically, can they take my home that still has a mortgage?

4. Can they take my car which is paid in full?

5. Can they take my husband's car which is paid in full?

6. Can they take the TV?

7. Can they take the computer?

Thank you. I hope that is more direct.
