How Do I File For Bankruptcy?

We Can Help You Plan for a Personal Bankruptcy Today

Personal bankruptcy is a legal process designed to discharge or eliminate debt through Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or a reorganization of debt through Chapter 13. Though both are tools provided by the federal government to assist people struggling with financial challenges, the two processes are quite different.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as liquidation. This is a process by which most unsecured debts are eliminated and the debtor is no longer responsible for them. Many Chapter 7 bankruptcy debtors have no significant assets to be liquidated so the unsecured debts are simply discharged.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy was developed to help people reorganize their secured debts (such as car loans or mortgages) so they can get back on the way to financial stability. The debtor is placed on a reasonable repayment plan that usually lasts from three to five years. If the debtor pays according to the plan, unsecured debts are usually discharged at the end of the plan.

When you contact us for a consultation, we will listen to the details of your case and we may be able to determine which process you should pursue in a very short amount of time. As we gather information about your situation, we will use a formula to determine which bankruptcy filing you qualify for or suggest alternatives.

Personal bankruptcy is intended to help debtors in the following ways:

  • Eliminates or reduces debt
  • Gives debtors time to work on a solution
  • Stops creditor harassment
  • Stops foreclosure or repossession

The benefits of filing are almost immediate. For instance, once you file for protection, creditors must cease contacting you for repayment.
