I have an autocare center but have had issues with Brain Cancer and so my Business Checking is presently overdrawn. is there a legal liability for me ? My business was established in 1964, I am 66 years old and hope to be selling out and retiring. What don't need is legl situations.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I am licensed in Ashby, Massaachusetts.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I am just beginning. This is an owner occupied business,. So when I sell I need alternative housing. Maybe senior housing? My wife is still living and in excellant health.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of. Thank you

You can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy here to discharge the debts.This would be the best way to get rid of the creditors hanging over you including the bank.

You can file this yourself pro se.

This would buy you more time in the house as well.

Forms

http://www.mab.uscourts.gov/mab/forms-0

Here’s a list of the forms most people need when they file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Some of these, however, may not apply to your case. For example, if you are not requested a filing fee waiver, you won’t need to fill out Form B 3BA Application for Waiver of Chapter 7 Filing Fee.

B 101 Voluntary Petition for Individuals Filing for Bankruptcy

B 101A Initial Statement About an Eviction Judgment Against You (only if you have eviction judgment against you)

B 101B Statement About Payment of an Eviction Judgment Against You (only if you have eviction judgment against you)
