We have helped many clients find solutions to difficult debt problems. Contact us to learn more about:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Sometimes described as a debt liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 bankruptcy completely discharges most forms of debt, including credit card bills, medical bills and other consumer debts. It is a fast and extremely effective remedy that enables you to discharge all or a significant portion of your debts.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you repay a portion of your debts in an amount a court determines that you are able to pay. Your debt repayment or reorganization plan lasts for three or five years. After the successful completion of your plan, the court will discharge remaining unsecured debts, which could save you thousands of dollars or more. Chapter 13 is often used by people who are behind on their home mortgage payment who are seeking to avoid or stop home foreclosure.

Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy result in an automatic stay, which goes into effect the moment your case is filed with the bankruptcy court. The automatic stay temporarily halts most creditors from further collection efforts, including wage garnishment, auto repossession and home foreclosure.
