If you are struggling to keep up with your monthly payments and are accumulating an overwhelming amount of debt, bankruptcy may be able to provide the relief you need to get a clean slate and move forward. Filing for bankruptcy temporarily stops collection actions, meaning it can be used to save your home, prevent wage garnishments, and avoid other damaging consequences of debt. Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you if you have little to no disposable income, while Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you create a plan to pay off your debt over time. Both of these types of bankruptcy allow filers to eliminate credit card debt, medical debt, and other unsecured debts at the end of each process. After reviewing your financial circumstances, we can determine whether bankruptcy is right for you, help you prepare your petition, and represent you every step of the way. Our goal is to fervently protect your interests and help you make the most of your filing.
