Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Also known as “straight bankruptcy” or “liquidation”, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common form of bankruptcy. Filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy immediately stops creditor calls and collection attempts. It can also put a hold on foreclosure and repossession, giving you time to make other arrangements for yourself and your family. You can wipe out most, if not all, of your debts through the Chapter 7 discharge. Most Chapter 7 cases are finished in just a few months, allowing you to start rebuilding your credit as quickly as possible. We’d like to learn more about your situation which is why you can schedule a complimentary consultation with us. (Click here to begin)

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a great option if you are behind on your house or car payments and want time to “catch up,” so you can keep the property. Chapter 13 may also be the best option if you do not qualify for a Chapter 7 case, or if you have a large amount of unprotected equity in your home that you may lose in a Chapter 7 case. Chapter 13 involves repayment of debt (some or all) through a court-approved payment plan for 3 to 5 years. A Chapter 13 repayment plan can lower your monthly debt payments and give you some much-needed breathing room. Chapter 13 allows you to discharge (wipe out) debt, while you keep the property you want to keep. I’m the right bankruptcy lawyer who can help, call me.

Chapter 11

Individuals may file a Chapter 11 case when they want the benefits of a Chapter 13 repayment plan, but their debt is too high for a Chapter 13 case. There are also other benefits to individuals filing a Chapter 11 case over a Chapter 13 case:

  • Prepetition mortgage arrears too high to pay in five years
  • Pay the value of a car (if less than the amount you owe) that was recently financed
  • You recently received a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 discharge
  • More time to pay non-dischargeable debts, like payroll taxes

    Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13: Key Differences in These Bankruptcy Chapters

    If the debt keeps mounting and you have found yourself drowning in bills and calls from debt collector calls, it might be time to seriously consider the option of bankruptcy. Two common programs used to eliminate debt are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Introduction to Bankruptcy There are various reasons why you would qualify for and choose one chapter over another, but one of the key factors considered is income. Chapter 7 Chapter 7, sometimes called liquidation bankruptcy, entails selling off most of your property to pay off debt. This form of bankruptcy is generally reserved for individuals with limited income who can't pay back their debt.  Chapter 13 Chapter 13, also known as reorganization bankruptcy or the working man’s bankruptcy, is the more common option for individuals who have income sufficient enough to qualify for and finish a repayment plan mandated by the court. As a result of this, you might get to keep some of your property, too. The repayment plan allows you to pay back a portion of the debt you owe over a designated time period. After that, any remaining unsecured debts might be “discharged.” A few examples of unsecured debts include medical bills and credit cards. And in this case, discharged means you aren't required to pay them back. Will Filing Eliminate Credit Card Debt? There are certain debts that bankruptcy won't erase – such as mortgages, student loans and car loans. These are all secured debts.  However, with Chapter 13, you might be able to [...]

    Bankruptcy Chapter 7: What Is It?

    If you’re considering bankruptcy, it is important to understand the different types and how they will impact you. Here, we’re going to take a look at Chapter 7 – also referred to as liquidation or straight bankruptcy. And this is probably the chapter people are most commonly familiar with. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is typically the best option for individuals who are far behind on debt payments and do not have the means to afford their monthly payments and living expenses.  However, filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy does mean you might have to give up some of your belongings and your credit will be impacted. But as a last resort, this could be the way to hit the restart button on your finances. Do I Qualify for Chapter 7? There are a few requirements to determine your eligibility before you can actually file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Your bankruptcy lawyer will review these with you:  Complete a credit counseling course. Pass the means test. You can’t have filed for Chapter 7 in the last eight years or Chapter 13 in the last six years. If you did file and your case was dismissed, there is at least a 181-day waiting period before trying again. Keep in mind, even though you might be eligible to file, a court could still dismiss your case if it is found that you are attempting to defraud creditors. What Debts Can Be Discharged? Generally, unsecured debts – such as credit cards and medical bills – are discharged under Chapter [...]

    Financial Stress? There’s A Solution for That.

    People can face financial distress at any point in their life. And sometimes it can seem as if it just shows up out of nowhere to completely wreak havoc on your life as you know it.

Or that unexpected medical bills arose and you didn’t have a backup plan. Whatever the circumstance is, recognizing financial distress is one of the first steps in addressing it:   How to Recognize Financial Distress Having to live in a paycheck-to-paycheck type manner for a few weeks might not necessarily indicate a larger problem. So, how do you know when you are just having a hard two weeks versus when there is really a problem? You are using credit cards to pay bills. Credit cards can be dangerous. And if you are having to rely on your credit card to pay things such as utilities or rent, you know that something is wrong. While it might keep you going for a little bit, it is ultimately snowballing into a larger problem for later. You can only make the minimum monthly payments. When you factor in interest rates, paying merely the minimum monthly payment on credit cards will have you paying far more interest over time. And depending on your balance, this could have you paying on this particular debt for years and years. Additionally, it is a surefire [...]
