Will my family members be required to help me repay my debt?

I am in a huge amount of debt and I know that I need to file for a bankruptcy but I am afraid to file for one because I am afraid that once I am declared a bankrupt, my family members such as my spouse and my children would be required by court to help me in paying my debts. would my famiy members be required to help me repay my debts and if so how do I keep that from happening?

    You don't have to worry about your family being required to help you pay off your debts. Your family will only be liable for your debts if they are co-owners of the debt with you. For example: you took out a home mortgage in both you and your spouse's names. Family members who are guarantors for your loan can also be made bankrupt if they are unable to repay it.

    Face to face verification via live video call rather than visiting a branch

    FlexM / FlexM

    I think it is more seamless if we could have a face to face verification via live video call rather than having to travel all the way since the idea is convenience anyway. The direct bank to card transfer was good but they could consider including wallet to bank as well. It would also be nice if they include multiple currencies for multiple wallets with attractive packages for Malaysia especially since other wallets/banks don’t have Malaysia. I would also fancy if they ensure that the interface updates promptly especially for remaining balance and suspended cards and include any charges upfront before users make payments

    No refunding from wallet if there is an error in the process of toping up an amount

    NETSPay / Electronic Transfers Singapore

    This platform provides zero flexibility of refunding from wallet if there is an error in the process of toping up the amount. Been told by Customer service that the only way is to terminate the account and the refund will be credited after 2 weeks. The UI as well have to be clear at the home screen on which default payment mode are we on as I've been told that the payment mode might switch every time after updating the app

    Terrible customer service in Singapore.

    PayPal / PayPal

    This folks have a terrible customer service in Singapore. If you have a problem, then good luck trying to contact them. I requested for refund and stop any payment to a certain company because I did not receive the ordered items and there was no delivery schedule or whatsoever. The reply was really classic, "Thank you for reporting this case, after reviewing your case, we found that this transaction was not unauthorized and hence couldn't be covered under PayPal Purchase Protection" and just like that the case was closed.

    Mighty Pay / United Overseas Bank

    This app has been lagging badly for these past one week or thereabout. It got stuck a couple of times last week, while this week, it is just says "busy" while entering the app or after I click to transact. Not sure if it is my upgrade to Android 10 or something else. I wonder if it is my phone that is the problem

    Top up your Alipay account and use it both in China and Singapore

    AliPay / Alipay Singapore E-Commerce

    Technically, you can open an Alipay account in Singapore, but you need a Chinese mobile number and credit card in order to transfer funds to your Alipay mobile wallet. If you’re a Singaporean who lives in China, you’ll be able to top up your Alipay account and use it both in China and Singapore. The following merchants in Singapore accept payment using Alipay; ComfortDelGro, Prime Taxis, Universal Studios, Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore Zoo, Metro and Robinsons. Now you can ask your friends to transfer money via HitPay to you instead of getting them to part with physical money.

    The most common and easiest, method for person-to-person payments

    WeChat Pay / Tencent Holdings

    The most common, and easiest, method for WeChat payments is person-to-person. The person to whom you’re sending money must already be a WeChat friend of yours. You start by composing a message to them and then add a “transfer” to them. When you click on the “transfer” button, you’ll be asked how much money you want to send to them. Enter an amount in RMB. You’ll then be asked to enter your password. Do that, and you’ll see a reddish-orange “transfer” icon appears.The recipient will see this in their WeChat app, and will then have to accept the transfer. Once they do, they will receive it.
