When our clients call us, they are often distraught and have considered bankruptcy only as a last resort. By the time the process is completed, many wonder why they did not seek help sooner.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a type of bankruptcy that eliminates most debts and allows an individual to make a fresh financial start. While Chapter 7 is considered to be a liquidation of debts, the vast majority of our clients are able to keep and maintain payments on their home and vehicles.

Not everyone qualifies for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and there are a number of factors considered in making that determination. During your free consultation with our office, we will take a detailed look at the entirety of your particular situation and determine what solutions are best for you. If Chapter 7 bankruptcy is not appropriate to meet your goals, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often a viable alternative.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a type of bankruptcy that reorganizes your debt. A manageable repayment plan is established by the court that typically spans from three to five years.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often a good option for people who have steady, monthly income, but have fallen behind on assets that they wish to keep. This type of bankruptcy ends the threats of foreclosure and repossession, and gives people an opportunity to save their homes and vehicles.
