Legal Answers
Q. Should a joint credit card still be reporting to Experian after a discharged Chapter 7 if only 1 person filed?
A: A discharged credit card will be reported as discharged by bankruptcy. The joint person who did not file will continue to show the credit report as before.
Q. If a person declares bankruptcy will they lose their house?
A: Need much more information. Most important - is the mortgage current? If so, then you may be able to file Ch 7 (the simple short bankruptcy). If not current you would need to either get current before you file a case or file Ch 13 bankruptcy and get caught up over either 3 or 5 years.
Q. If I have equity in my house will I still be able to file chapt 7 bankruptcy?
A: Depends on a lot of question too numerous to list. Just a few:

Property valuation.

Which exemptions you can use.

Your age.

Your family size.

Your sources of income and amounts.

Your expenses.

Anticipated changes in income and expenses.
