I am a disabled vet with 60%, and I want to file bankruptcy
I am a disabled vet with 60%, and I want to file bankruptcy with my spouse. We accrued all debt while serving actively. My question is since I already pass the means test according to the SCRA, does my wife also automatically pass or does she have to use her income and take the means test. No Bankruptcy lawyer that I have spoke with could tell me a definitive answer.

I'm being sued by my old condo association. I declared bankruptcy last year and it was discharged. this debt occurred after my discharge. I am on SSD. I lost everything when I got sick. I tried to get the bank to take the property back no questions asked. No luck. My question is, if they win their trial, can they garnish my SSD? I share an account with a boyfriend and don't want to put him at risk.

My wife and I filed chapter 7 bankruptcy in may of 2015 and
my wife and I filed chapter 7 bankruptcy in may of 2015 and was discharged in aug 2015. we did have exemptions in the amount of $12734. I was waiting for back pay from a previous job in the amount of 31k which we disclosed to the trustee for the PA bankruptcy we filed. My question is the back pay was issued last month. the was 7300 paid in taxes from the check which left an amount of 23k. Now the trustee stated they were dispersing money to creditors that were involved in the case. according to the trustee i will not get my full exemption amount, I am only getting 5300 becauase the taxes that were orginally taken out had to be taken from my exemption amount and given to creditors. Can they do that. Arent i entitled to the full exemption amount. thank you fro your help.
I would need to file BK chapter 7.I am married but want to
Hello,So I would need to file BK chapter 7.I am married but want to file SINGLE Bankruptcy Chapter 7.I own a condominium property(primary residence),in Chicago Illinois.I hired an appraiser and they determined the value at $98000.My Mortgage balance is $66000.The Illinois homestead Exempt amount for a property is $15000.Would the trustee consider any other costs on top of the $15000 exemption,that would reduce my equity?(like real estate agent fees,title,etc )?So 98000(appraised value)-66000(mortgage balance)-15000(exemption)=17000 EQUITY so far...My mother would be giving me a gift (money) to pay for the "Equity" ,so that the trustee doesn't sell /foreclose on my home.Thank you!

I might have to file for Bankrupcy Chapter 7,in Illinois.I own a property/condominium.The Exempt Equity in IL is $15000.If I have any equity remaining(after deduction of $15000 Exempt Equity),can I just ask the trustee that I can borrow money from family and friends,and pay the Equity amount,so that I can keep my home?Will they give me priority in paying,or they would just foreclose and sell it?
