Dear Ken,

I would think it would be just another unsecured creditor in your pool of debt if you owe them money. Your bankruptcy attorney will look at your specific situation and give you specific advice but I think it will be fine.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.

Sincerly,
