What if I entered a settlement agreement with a creditor, can I still file bankruptcy and discharge the debt?

Yes. However, in some rare occasions a settlement agreement may create a security interest in certain assets. The settlement agreement will need to be reviewed to determine if a security interest exists in any assets and the timing of that security interest.
