  • How Much Debt Do I Need to File Bankruptcy?Episode 419:How Much Debt Do I Need to File Bankruptcy?

    This is a question I get quite often - "How much debt do I need to have in order to file bankruptcy?"

    The answer might surprise you - it depends!

    Are you self-employed?

    Have you had a drop in income?

    What type of debt do you have? Business debt? Medical? IRS?

    Typically, our answer is that you need to have more debt than you can repay over a reasonable period of time.  So someone with $30,000 in debt who makes $50,000 per year may be a good candidate for bankruptcy. Whereas someone with $100,000 in debt who makes $1 million per year may be a bad candidate for bankruptcy.

    Today's discussion stems from a conversation George had with a potential client. This person bought a new car for $25,000, with payments of $725 per month on a 5-year loan at 20% interest!

    If you want to become debt free within a reasonable period of time, and you have some disposable income at the end of the month, please review the Money Max system: https://www.moneymaxaccount.com/yesner
