Upfront and Honest, a Trusted Bankruptcy Lawyer
When you come in to our office for your initial consultation, we will sit down with you and begin going over your finances. We will look at your assets, liabilities, income and expenses. If bankruptcy isn’t right for you, we will tell you. If it is, we will advise you on which chapter best fits your needs — Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can get rid of most unsecured debt, including credit cards, medical bills and car payments. Any of your property that is not exempt, however, can be taken by a trustee to distribute as money to creditors. In most cases, you would be able to protect your home and your car.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
A typical person seeking Chapter 13 bankruptcy has had a financial problem in the past leading to a debt that they just cannot keep up with. Chapter 13 filers make manageable payments to a trustee over a 3 to 5 year period. If you are behind on your mortgage, the mortgage arrearages can be made up through the Chapter 13 plan.
