We can help you find debt relief solutions for your specific circumstances. In many cases, personal bankruptcy is a good solution.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy protects you from your creditors while you develop and carry out a repayment plan. If you are eligible, Chapter 13 will allow you to drastically reduce or eliminate your debt within three to five years.

Perhaps most importantly, Chapter 13 stops harassment from your creditors. As soon as you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, creditors are prohibited from taking collection actions against you. Generally, Chapter 13 is for people who have some regular income, but not enough to keep up with their debts.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the fastest and most effective method of eliminating debt. Where Chapter 13 takes up to five years, Chapter 7 typically takes just a few months.

There are many common misconceptions about bankruptcy, and Chapter 7 bankruptcy in particular. While this type of bankruptcy does require you to liquidate some of your assets to pay off your creditors, federal and state laws provide many exemptions for personal property. We can help you understand how the process will apply to your unique circumstances.
