I previously had a lease with two roommates, about four years ago. I filed bankruptcy in October 2009. We owe approximately $2000 in damages at the apartment we shared, but I wrote these charges off in my bankruptcy. I was contacted by one of the former roommates, saying that she is being harrassed by a collections agency. What should I do? I know that by filing, I have no legal obligation to this matter. I live paycheck to paycheck now, but have no debt. Is it morally correct for me to help her with this debt? I can't tell her about my bankruptcy, she is not the type of person I can trust to be discreet, or civil.




Well, you don't have legal obligation in this matter since you have filed bankruptcy. If you can and want to help your friend, then you may go ahead. It will not be morally wrong to help her with this debt.

If you want to maintain your friendship, I would work out a plan to help her. Even though not liable legally, in my opinion you are morally and ethically responsible. and she wouldn't know about the bankruptcy.
