Re: Chapter 7

Assuming you pass the means test (you are below the median income or, if above, your income less a combination of actual and presumed expenses are below a certain amount), and therefore qualify for chapter 7, you should be able to do what you are inquiring about. You should consult an experienced bankruptcy lawyer to go over your situation in detail.
