The best person to explain any bankruptcy and what you can keep is a bankruptcy attorney.  Look for one that offers a free initial consultation then listen to what you are told.  Some debts cannot be discharged.  Just be aware that a bankruptcy will ruin your credit for ten years.  Please take the time to read the articles on this site so you can understand credit and work on building a good score. You might also consider looking for Dave Ramsey's site and learn effective ways to repay debts, which might help avoid bankruptcy. .
