Just met with a lawyer in Pennsylvania today. I've been sued by a credit card company for 14,000. Some but not all was for a failed business venture. Can I still file chapter 7? She was checking on it. Wasn't sure

hello

Expert:  WALLSTREETESQ replied 1 month ago.

Absent further information, you can file a chapter 7 bankruptcy for business debt, as long as your personal income is below the state median,

Expert:  WALLSTREETESQ replied 1 month ago.

if you were personally sued for the debt, it would be discharged through a personal bankruptcy.

Some on the credit card was personal use. That's the problem
Expert:  WALLSTREETESQ replied 1 month ago.

that is fine since you are filing a personal bankruptcy and the debt is in your name,

Expert:  WALLSTREETESQ replied 1 month ago.

In a personal chapter 7 you can have a mix of business and personal debt be discharged.
