Which Bankruptcy is Right for me?
Sorting through the complexities of bankruptcy can be difficult without the assistance of a lawyer. I am devoted to providing comprehensive information vital to understanding how Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings may help you. During your consultation, we will discuss the advantages and requirements of both forms of bankruptcy and which may better fit your needs.
Chapter 7: Also known as liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 allows individuals to eliminate debt while still keeping some assets. After the Chapter 7 process is complete, your dischargeable debts will be eliminated, offering you a fresh financial outlook and the chance to rebuild your credit over time. During our consultation, we will discuss which types of debt are dischargeable, what debts you may wish to affirm and which of your assets we can exempt from liquidation. Visit my page on Chapter 7 bankruptcy to learn more.
Chapter 13: A Chapter 13 restructuring or repayment plan allows for negotiation with creditors to reduce or principle balances or interest rates, and reorganize payment plans. Chapter 13 generates a payment arrangement that allows your debts to be resolved over a three to five year period. Visit my page on Chapter 13 bankruptcy to learn more.
Both of these processes invoke the automatic stay, which stops calls from creditors and collection agencies immediately upon your initial filing. Filing also halts foreclosure proceedings, allowing you to maintain possession of your home while the bankruptcy is resolved. Credit counseling is a required step in a successful bankruptcy plan and can help you in your path to rebuilding your credit.
