Senior citizens have contacted me to discuss the possibility of bankruptcy for them. Most of them have no assets that their creditors could get; they could "exempt" from creditors all of their assets. What do I say to them? First, I explain that although a creditor could sue them and get a court judgment, the creditor wouldn't be able to collect anything from them on that judgment. They are what is often called "judgment proof" but is more accurately "collection proof". Is that the end of the conversation? Not really. There may be other considerations regarding their situation that aren't obvious at first glance.
