My mother died and there are 7 of us kids. One sister filed bankruptcy. Can bankruptcy court force us to sell to pay of this sisters debts?
1 Answer from Attorneys
A bankruptcy court doesn't force anyone to pay debts. If you have joint debt with your sister and she discharges her liability for the debt, you can be held responsible for the whole debt. If you don't have any joint debts with your sister, her bankruptcy won't affect you.
