Are Immigrants Allowed to File for Bankruptcy?
There has always been a lot of confusion about whether people who legally live and work in this country, but are not United States citizens, are able to file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code. The other question that often comes along with whether they can file is if filing for bankruptcy will impact their immigration status.
If you are an immigrant who is having difficulty paying your bills, you should contact an experienced bankruptcy lawyer who understands the law and can help you find a solution that meets your needs. At the Price Law Firm, our entire practice is dedicated to helping people facing overwhelming debt to get back on the right financial path so they can make a new beginning.
Debt Relief Assistance Is Available for Immigrants
If you are a legal permanent resident of the United States, you are able to file for bankruptcy protection. Our attorneys have extensive experience in all types of consumer bankruptcy matters, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We also handle a wide variety of foreclosure and loan modification issues.
With regard to a bankruptcy impacting your immigration status, the answer is no. Bankruptcy is not a crime. It is a right given to United States residents who need help getting a fresh start. It will not impact the status of your green card or hinder any efforts you are making to obtain citizenship.
