I Want to Keep This Credit Card When I File Bankruptcy

In most circumstances, no, you cannot keep a credit card. The Bankruptcy rules require that you list all of the debts that you owe in your petition, including all of the credit cards. So, if you have a balance on a credit card, it has to be listed in your bankruptcy petition. If you do not have a balance on your credit card, it does not have to be listed in your case. A word of caution, however; many credit card companies check your credit periodically and when they discover you have filed bankruptcy, they may close your account.
