The decision on whether or not to file bankruptcy is a personal one and not to be taken lightly. There are many factors that go into the decision, including (but not limited to):
- Amount of debt in question.
- Type of debt, whether secured, priority, dischargeable, etc.
- Value and nature of the debtor's assets.
- How assets are titled and whether there are any co-owners.
- Whether a spouse is involved, such as a co-debtor, or co-owner of assets.
- Disposable income as a function of gross income and the debtor's unique expenses.
- Timing of any pending collection action against the debtor or collateral.
