Her retirment should be exempt, or considered income if she is receiving it in monthly installments. If she took the funds in a lump sum, more details would be needed to make a final determination. As for the landlord action, you would simply need to move prior to the filing and list the landlord as a creditor in your bankruptcy case.

If you're struggling to pay off your delinquent debts and getting hounded by collection agencies, then it's time to address your financial problems. And filing for personal bankruptcy may be the ideal solution. Whether you're an individual or married couple considering Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or a business considering a Chapter 11 reorganization, or a farmer considering Chapter 12, you need the advice and guidance of an experienced bankruptcy attorney. Your lawyer can help determine which form of bankruptcy is right for you, prepare and file all of the paperwork, and advise you throughout the bankruptcy process.
