Bankruptcy is governed by Federal law, and applies to all States and debts regardless where the debt was incurred, so if she has debt in another State, that can be discharged in Court with no issue.

Does her Ira count in a bankruptcy case

WALLSTREETESQ :

an IRA is protected, so the bankruptcy court cannot get any money from it,

WALLSTREETESQ :

$1,000,000 in an IRA is exempt so as long as she has less than that amount it cannot be touched
