Miscellaneous Virginia Bankruptcy Questions

What About ….?

What about my bank account?

Filing bankruptcy does not force you to close your bank account. (Many credit unions will fire you as a customer.) If your credit is already so bad you can’t open an account, try TD Bank, a new bank in Northern Virginia. Another option is Wood Forest Bank, in some of the larger Walmarts, including the one on Liberia Avenue in Manassas..

What about immigration status?

Filing for Bankruptcy will not hurt your immigration status. You can still get a green card– you can still become a citizen, exactly the same as before.

What about my tax refunds?

Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will not stop your tax refunds.

Will my employer know?

Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will not involve your employer.

Will I be garnished?

Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy does not mean you will be garnished– it makes it illegal for your credit cards and medical bills to garnish you.
