Does it make more sense to go with Chapter 7?
Are you still there?
I had two questions. Can you please answer my second one?
Hello? Are you there?
I assume that you don't know the answer to the question. Can you reply either way?
I can't wait any longer at this time. I really need to go. Sorry. I would accept if you will answer the questions.
I apologize -- I was off-line.
Yes, based upon the information in your post, it makes more sense for you to file a chapter 7. A chapter 7 would result in a discharge of the medical bills and secured credit card debt. Whereas chapter 13 would result in a payment plan over a five-year period
J.A. policy requires that you start a new thread for a new question. Please accept the answer and then you may start your new question in a new thread
