I thought that if I filed for bankruptcy, the bank wouldn't be able to come after me and garnish any earnings that I make in the future. If I don't file can they garnish any earnings from me in the future, or is it just l;ike I'm leaving and that's it. They just sell the house and get what they can.
Also when leaving my house. I've been told that I can just take what I want and leave the house. In other words I can leave whatever I want and just take what want and don't have to clean up or make any repairs.
My sheriff sale date is 8/15/13, that means that I will have to be out by 9/15/13. I thought that bankruptcy would give me more time in the house.
Thanks, 1 more thing.
If I take the pension now and roll it over to an IRA or some other retirement account. Can the bank take that from me. This really has me scared. My business is not good and will be going out of business. This money is the only thing that I have to fall back on and want to make sure that I have it in the future.
