Planning BK7. I'm buried!
I have an unsecured line of credit with Waterhouse where my IRA account and regular stock trading account are also held. The Roth IRA has shrunk from 12K to 4K and there is only $13,000 in the other account. I owe $15,000 on the line of credit. My plan was to cash out the $17,000 and put it all toward federal IRS taxes that I owe. That part is ok, isn't it? Then, file ch. 7 to clear the $15,000 line of credit and about $70,000 in debt on credit cards. Once complete, is there any chance that I could expect my IRA and trading account to still exist so that I can start investing again with my fresh start? If not, would another brokerage firm take me on?
Thanks so much for advice!
