Bankruptcy Lawyer

Are you overwhelmed with debt? Are your wages being garnished? Is your home about to be foreclosed? Is your car about to be repossessed? Are you drowning in student loan debt? 

Do you want to get rid of your debts and keep everything you own? Do you need additional time to catch up on your mortgage payments or your car payments? We can make this happen by filing either a chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. 

We can make your debts disappear. We can stop your wages from being garnished. We can stop the foreclosure of your home. We can make sure your car will not be repossessed. 

If a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is done correctly, you will be able to wipe out all your debts and keep all of your property. If a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is done correctly, you will get the additional time you need to catch up on your house and car payments and get your debts under control. 

The first thing we will have to do is to decide which type of bankruptcy will best suit your needs. Chapter 7 is best for people with a lot of consumer debt like credit card bills or doctors bills. Chapter 13 is best for people who are trying to hang on to an asset like a house or a car.

The next thing we need to do is to decide which type of bankruptcy you are qualified to file. Not everyone can file a Chapter 7 because there are income limitations and various government tests you have to satisfy before you can file a Chapter 7. Similarly, Chapter 7 would not be appropriate for someone who has a lot of equity in their home or other assets. If you have a lot of equity in your home and you want to keep it, a Chapter 13 would work best for you. 

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy will take about three months from the date we file. A Chapter 13 is a longer term process involving making payments based in either a three or a five year plan.
