I often get questions from Oregon consumers about medical bankruptcy but there is no such thing. I think the myth that is out there is that there is some sort of specialized bankruptcy that enables the filer to get rid of medical bills only while keeping the credit cards going.
The fact is that all unsecured debts need to be listed on your schedules; you don’t get to pick who gets listed. Purposefully leaving a creditor off your schedules might get you in trouble with the court as you are signing off under penalty of perjury that you have listed all of your unsecured creditors on your schedules.
If you do have any questions about bankruptcy feel free to give me a call or set an appointment at one of our Oregon Bankruptcy Law Offices in Portland or Salem. I will look forward to hearing from you.
