Finding The Right Debt Relief Solution For You
When used in the right situations, filing for bankruptcy can be a beneficial tool for people in serious debt. Our experienced bankruptcy lawyers will review your case and explain the benefits and potential drawbacks in filing for bankruptcy.
Our experienced attorneys can guide you on what filing is right for you, including:
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy
- Chapter 11 bankruptcy
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is best for people overwhelmed with unsecured debt, such as medical bills, personal loans and credit card debt. Chapter 7 gives them a fresh start by protecting them from collection efforts and wage garnishment. Typically, personal debts are discharged within three months of filing. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, often referred to as reorganization bankruptcy, helps couples or individuals who have overwhelming debt but make too much money to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 11 bankruptcy, known as reorganization, is mainly for mid to large businesses to reorganize their debts to become viable and remain in operation.
If bankruptcy is not the right choice for you, we can help you develop other options to move past your debt. We can also help small businesses facing financial difficulties with Chapter 11 reorganization and other relief options.
