Chapter 7 & Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
If you're facing a growing pile of debt, you’re not alone. Like many, you simply need some relief and a fresh start. The two main kinds of personal bankruptcy include Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves a liquidation process in which you sell any non-exempt assets and use the proceeds to repay your creditors. Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you eliminate debts associated with credit cards, medical bills, back rent, utility bills, and more.
Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to pay back debts through a repayment plan. Most repayment plans require monthly payments for anywhere from three to five years.
Life isn’t always smooth sailing, but the storms don’t have to last forever. I've been providing debtors with affordability, experience, and personal attention since 1995.
