Elder clients can benefit from bankruptcy. Many of the elderly are saddled with medical debt if they are not eligible for Medicare. Unfortunately, your body starts to fail when it may be inconvenient for you. Bankruptcy can erase debts. Many elder clients are raising grandchildren and have not been able to register them for Medicaid, not knowing when the parents will re-appear. These medical bills can be disposed of under bankruptcy. Many of the elderly have co-signed for auto-loans for children who then defaulted on those loans. These debts that can be erased by bankruptcy. Many elderly clients may have co-signed on private student loans for children or grandchildren. The child defaults and the elder is left to pay the loan. Another means to use the bankruptcy code. In many instances elders with second mortgages on a home that is under water can strip that second mortgage from their home.
