I am being sued for $30,000. I do not have means to bear this. Should I file a bankruptcy? If yes then what to do now?

You can go for a chapter 7 bankruptcy.

The following are not considered under the discharged list of debts under bankruptcy

* Child support
* alimony
* Debts for personal injury or death caused by you ( Drunk conditions)
* Student Loans.
* Income tax debt.

Can you please tell me what the issue is? Of course, you don't have to. Depending on what the issue is ( why you oew the money), I know in SOME states, the Bankrupcy has to ALREADY be filed, NOT to owe this debt ( depending on what it is). But, Laura is right....those things that she said Child Support, etc. cannot be discharged.

Sorry I was not clear, on this issue. I meant ( for example)..if you filed for Bankruptcy, and THEN you recieved papers ,that somone/company wanted to sue you, you can't go bankrupt, on whatever the person/company is sueing you for, because THAT certain person/company you did not file bankruptcy for. Does that make sense now, Laura?/ Sorry, again, if I wasn't clear.

If you've filed a chap. 7, then I don't think it matters if a creditor is listed, or not. The debt is still discharged..."nature of a debt does not determine its dischargeability" ...or something like that.

If a chap. 13, IDK.

I get what you're saying. That DOES make sense. Which one is it that you can 'pick' which debts you want to pay off? Which one is it that ALL of your debt is 'discharged'?

I think you're thinking of a chap. 13--which is essentially a repayment plan, where it may be possible to re-affirm a debt. A chap. 7 wipes your slate "clean."

Ok..yeah..I just din't know which one was which. Thanks. I know SOO people that have filed for Bankruptcy. That REALLY was the 'only' choice they had. A friend, of my parents, filed YEARS ago ( I would say about 15 years ago. The Bankruptcy is STILL on their credit. I understand..this 'approach' is the best thing for some people. But, doesn't bring your credit score WAY down???

Yes it does, but like all things, it passes. As far as your friend's parents go, they should dispute the BK entries. (7 years for a Chap 13, 10 years for a Chap 7).

WOW!! Bankruptcy can be on your CR longer than any deliquent debt?!...seems that way, anyway. That's amazing!! I say that because people usually file for Bankruptcy to 'start over'.but, I guess it depends on the situation. OHHHH....Wanna let everyone know something. i said, in an earlier post, I was concerned about Cash Call being on my CR. Well.............I was trying to look up the phone number, on the Web and guess what I found?! I know people are saying it's NOT a PDL, but,..all I could find Cash Call under is 'Cash Call Payday Loan'. When I first got a loan through them ( November of last year), they were NOT listed that way,on the Web. It was just listed as 'CashCall'. Also.....I was looking on my CR's..........ALL 3 CR's have 3 DIFFERENT phone numbers on them!! If Cash Call is listed as 'CashCall Payday Loan', then is it NOT a PDL???
