Understanding Different Types of Bankruptcy 

Bankruptcy is a legal involving a person who is unable to repay their outstanding debts. The process begins with a petition filed by the debtor and results in a judicial determination of legal claims by the creditors. But not all bankruptcies are the same, and it's necessary to understand the differences: 

  • Chapter 7 (liquidation): Often referred to as 'straight' or 'liquidation' bankruptcy, Chapter 7 involves the sale of certain debtor assets to pay creditors. It can offer a fresh start for individuals who have no viable way to pay back their debts. 

  • Chapter 13 (debt repayment plan): This is designed for individuals who have a regular income, allowing them to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts over time, usually within three to five years.

Choosing the Right Chapter for Your Circumstances 

Our role includes helping you choose the type of bankruptcy that aligns with your financial situation. We'll analyze your total debt, determine your asset exemptions, verify your eligibility, and discuss the best strategy for moving forward. Whether it's wiping the slate clean with a Chapter 7 filing or making a plan to repay your debt with Chapter 13, we’ll guide you toward the most advantageous outcome.

Signs You Should Consider Filing for Bankruptcy 

Deciding whether or not to file for bankruptcy can often feel deeply personal and be a difficult choice to make. However, some signs can indicate that it might be time to consider this option, such as: 

  • Continual calls and letters from collections agencies 

  • Using loans or credit cards to pay for basic necessities 

  • Significant debt with no foreseeable repayment ability 

  • Facing foreclosure or repossession of property 

  • Garnished wages or bank accounts 

If these situations sound familiar, we suggest discussing your options with a qualified bankruptcy attorney. 

Benefits of Hiring a Bankruptcy Attorney 

Bankruptcy laws and procedures can be complex and intimidating. Hiring a bankruptcy attorney can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • Accuracy and Timeliness: Completing and filing bankruptcy forms can be confusing. We check for accuracy and adhere to tight deadlines. 

  • Creditor Communications: Once you hire a lawyer, creditors are generally required to direct any communications to your attorney, relieving some of the stress associated with constant collection efforts.
