We offer representation in the following bankruptcy-related matters:
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a type of bankruptcy case that allows a debtor to eliminate unwanted and harmful types of debt such as credit card balances, personal loans, and unpaid medical bills and other unsecured dischargeable debts. Most people who are facing financial hardship use a Chapter 7 bankruptcy to get their fresh start.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a type of bankruptcy where the Debtor will propose a repayment plan (called a “Chapter 13 plan”) that will allow certain creditors to be repaid at least a portion of the amounts owed over a period of time (generally three and not longer than five years). This is in contrast to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in which one’s debts are generally eliminated without any repayment. For certain individuals, it is much more advantageous to file for Chapter 13 as opposed to Chapter 7. Please feel free to contact us to allow us the opportunity to review your financial situation in detail to determine whether a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for you.
Chapter 11 is one chapter of the US Bankruptcy Code which, allows financial restructuring and reorganization as opposed to liquidation of a company’s assets. Certain individuals who are not eligible for a fresh start under Chapter 13 may also consider a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
