Debts and Bankruptcy
When you file for bankruptcy, creditors must halt all efforts to collect money from you, at least temporarily. That means no more threatening letters, no more calls, no more lawsuits once you have filed. Bankruptcy can stop foreclosure on your home, repossession of property, and garnishment of your wages.
- Student loans

Different chapters of bankruptcy allow discharge of debts in different ways. We will help you determine what is right for your situation.
Chapter 7: A court-appointed Trustee identifies potential assets that may be sold to pay unsecured debts. In most cases, however, a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy allows a debtor to keep all of their property and belongings while eliminating debts.
Chapter 13: Our team develops a repayment plan approved by the court to reduce and restructure some debts based on the debtor's ability to pay. At least a portion of the amount owed to Creditors will be paid through the Trustee. A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is especially helpful if you want to keep your car and/or home and are behind on payments.
