Can I file for bankruptcy as a new business owner? 3 Answers as of August 27, 2010

My salary has substantially decreased over the past few years. However, I also recently started a company with several partners. Will the fact that I just started a company prevent me from filing for bankruptcy?

might. No way I can answer a question like this without knowing all the facts and figures. What is your current salary with the new company? Is this company a corporation? Do you have an ownership interest in it? If so, what is the value of your interest? etc. etc. These all factor into the analysis. You need to have a comprehensive consultation with a bankruptcy attorney to assess your options.
