Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Chapter 7 is a powerful tool, used to wipe out your debt, both Business and Personal.  It will stop all collection actions against you, stop all lawsuits and harassing phone calls and even get you out of a lease on your business property. When your case is filed, the Federal Bankruptcy Judge, immediately issues a Court Order, barring all actions against you, including any action to collect on any debts.  This is why Foreclosures, Wage Garnishments, Lawsuits and Collections are all stopped, when you file for bankruptcy.  
This process is immediate, and therefore a Bankruptcy filed at 9:00 a.m. will stop a trustees sale set for 10:00 am, that same day. The Court lets you keep most, if not all of your property, when you file for Bankruptcy.  The reason is,  the Court does not want you to have to go right back into debt, after you file, so they will let you keep your car, all your household possessions, your home and your retirement accounts. Our office files your case "electronically".  That is when the Bankruptcy Protection starts.  It is immediate.
About 6 weeks later, you will need to go to the Court and meet with a Bankruptcy Trustee.  They will have reviewed your paperwork and will ask for documents proving your identity, ie drivers license and social security card.  They will then ask you to verify that you listed all of your debts and all of your assets. They will then ask if any creditors are present with any questions. You are then free to go.  The whole process takes only a few minutes, when done properly.  Our office has been specializing in Bankruptcy Law since 1981, and we know how to get the job done and done properly.  The Court will issue a discharge of your debts and your case will be concluded.  We have found that most of our clients have a 100 point increase in their FICO credit score within about a year after filing.  Contrary to what you may hear, a Bankruptcy will usually improve your credit, not have a negative effect on you.  It will not ruin your credit for the rest of your life.  In fact, very quickly , most people can obtain a car loan, a home loan and even new credit cards if they want them.

Chapter 13:
We can stop a foreclosure, pay back missed house payments at 0%, and "strip" off 2nd or 3rd Mortgages on your home, by filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. 
Chapter 13 is a repayment plan, where you pay what you have left over from your income each month, after expenses, to a trustee, who then pays your creditors. Plans last from 3 to 5 years.  You do not have to pay 100% of your debt, in fact many plans only pay 2% or 3% of the debt, but at the end, if you have made all Chapter 13 payments, all of your debt is forgiven. 100% forgiven.  You can pay back any missed payments you may have on your home mortgage, at 0% interest.  If your home is worth less than what you owe on your 1st mortgage, you can "strip" off any 2nd mortgages, and pay them with the rest of your unsecured debt.  That means, at the end of your plan, you will have paid off both your credit cards as well as your 2nd mortgage, and probably for only pennies on the dollar. As long as you are making your payments, the Court will provide protection, preventing foreclosure, wage garnishment and any collection attempts against you.  Chapter 13 is a powerful tool, and should be given serious consideration by anyone in financial trouble.  You can keep your assets while in the Chapter 13, and you are protected by the Court. 

Call us today to find out how Chapter 13, a Chapter 7 or Student Loan negotiation can improve your financial health.  Bankruptcy wipes the slate clean, giving you a fresh start and peace of mind, about how you will pay your bills.
