What is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is a solution available to individuals going through hard financial situations. Individuals and couples who file for Chapter 7 can legally wipe away all or some of their debt.
Most people choose Chapter 7 Bankruptcy when they want to completely discharge (eliminate) their debt. But it’s not right for everyone.
Depending on your circumstances, it may be more appropriate and beneficial to you to file a repayment plan (which is part of the Chapter 13 Bankruptcy process).

There are also many myths about bankruptcy that we’ll help to dispel – that you are not able to keep your car, your home or personal belongings. The bankruptcy process is actually quite the opposite. In most situations you are able to keep certain property and your personal belongings if handled and filed properly by a trained and licensed attorney. However it requires proper planning, and careful execution by the attorney and trustee who will both be involved in the process of filing your case.
There’s also an unfortunate myth perpetuated that filing for bankruptcy protection will prevent you from being able to qualify for a home or car loan for 7-10 years. This is simply false. Most of our clients are able to qualify for home and car loans inside of two years.

Speaking to an attorney is free, and takes only 15-30 minutes. That means you are only 30 minutes away from finding out how you can rid your life of the stress caused by financial hardship.
