If you're gearing up to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you're probably worried about how much property you're going to lose. In fact, you likely have visions in your mind that involve men in moving trucks coming to empty out your house, and later having your home taken away from you, too.
When people drive drunk, they place others on the road at risk. In order to reduce the number of intoxicated or impaired drivers on the road, Minnesota has enacted laws prohibiting impaired driving. Driving while impaired (DWI) is a criminal offense. Depending on the circumstances, a DWI offense could result in a misdemeanor or felony charge. The state of Minnesota looks at several factors, including your blood alcohol content (BAC), the number of previous offenses on your record and whether there were any special circumstances, like children in the vehicle.
Bankruptcy is sometimes looked at as a bad word, but the truth is that it can be an immense help to those who need it. Filing for bankruptcy doesn't mean you've failed. It means that you're taking charge of your financial situation and making a change.
