Why File Bankruptcy?

One of the many advantages of filing for bankruptcy includes an “automatic stay.” This ” automatic stay” stops all creditors from collecting a debt or taking legal action against you. Filing bankruptcy may:

  • Eliminate most unsecured debt, like credit cards;
  • Stop a foreclosure;
  • Stop lawsuits;
  • Stop wage garnishments;
  • Stop harassing phone calls; and,
  • Stop even repossessions.

How Do I Choose?  Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

There are two main consumer bankruptcies:  Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.  These Chapters allow the debtor to either enter a repayment plan or liquidate the debtor’s assets to pay debts.  Repayment plans let the debtor reorganize their debts, reduce their monthly payments, and to stretch the debts over a period of three to five years.  Liquidation is the process of selling the debtor’s assets and using those proceeds to pay the debts.  Choosing the “Chapter” most applicable to your situation is absolutely critical.  We are here to help you make this critical decision. We represent our clients by:

  • Working with you step-by-step through the bankruptcy process;

  • Answering any questions and/or concerns in a timely manner; and,
