Bankruptcy Relief Is Your Right Under the Law
Many people are hesitant to contact a bankruptcy attorney because they often feel as though they have done something wrong. Hardworking people across the country are finding themselves in financial distress due to no fault of their own. Job loss, divorce, unexpected medical bills and other causes can put otherwise financially stable people into a position where they are unable to meet their financial obligations.
When you hire our firm, we will take the time to help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of filing for bankruptcy. We will conduct a thorough review of your financial situation and give you our best recommendation regarding a sound debt relief strategy. The majority of our bankruptcy clients file petitions under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Chapter 7 can be a good option for people who have large amounts of unsecured debt such as credit card or medical bills. Those who qualify for Chapter 7 are able to discharge their debts without any further obligation to creditors. The entire process can be completed in as little as six months.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy: Also referred to as a "wage-earner" plan, Chapter 13 allows you to repay your debts according to a court-approved repayment plan over a three- to five-year period. Under Chapter 13, you would make one payment to your trustee who would be responsible for distributing the funds to your creditors.
