Filing bankruptcy could be beneficial to your father as it would rid him of these debts and make life easier for him as a result of getting out from under the debt.
If he were able to file bankruptcy, he generally can keep exempt property and get rid of the debts. Here's a good link you can read about the exemptions: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/michigan-bankruptcy-exemptions.html
