My mother has no assets,nor receives S.S, She is a retired Illinois teacher and receives pension monthly. She has Dementia from Brain radiation and needs for time care in Asst.living for Dementia. Do I file for a Bankruptcy to free up her monthly pension of 3800.00 to be able to pay for care?
A person files for bankruptcy when they cannot repay their debts. Is there a garnishment on your mother's pension that is diverting money to pay off her debts? If this is the case, your mother can file for bankruptcy to discharge the debts and stop the garnishment.
