bankruptcygreenspun.com : LUSENET : Repossession : One Thread
I note a few discussions on these pages with people advising to declare yourself bankrupt, but can they force you to go bankrupt? if you don't want to declare yourself bankrupt?

Yes they can; they can make you bankrupt through the courts. They don't usually do this though - because it creates bad publicity if hardship follows for you and your family. It also closes the door on the debt - in most (non-fraud) cases, which is counter-productive for them. They want their money.
