Firm Overview

Atlantic City Attorney For Chapter 7, Chapter 11 And Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Getting out of debt can be easier and cheaper than you think. If you have significant debts and do not expect to be able to repay them, bankruptcy may be right for you. Our law office assists consumer and business clients to eliminate debts using the following bankruptcy options:

Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Also known as liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 eliminates most filers' debts within a few months, but requires them to give up assets and property to creditors as payment. It also temporarily lowers the filer's credit rating.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
While many small-businesses owners are best served by Chapter 13, larger businesses and corporations may require a Chapter 11 bankruptcy to reorganize their finances. Chapter 11 bankruptcies are highly complicated; however, our experienced Chapter 11 bankruptcy attorney can ensure that all paperwork is completed and deadlines are met.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Often called "reorganization" bankruptcy, Chapter 13 involves creating a financial reorganization plan by which the filer is expected to pay off debts in monthly increments over a three- to five-year period. Chapter 13 typically takes longer to complete and entails more requirements than Chapter 7; however, it is better if you have specific assets you wish to retain, such as a home or assets related to a small business. If your loans are "under water," the cramdown provisions of Chapter 13 can also eliminate a second mortgage or restructure your remaining car payments.
You Can Keep Your Property

Federal and state laws exempt certain property from bankruptcy liquidation. These exemptions allow filers to keep certain items, including homes, vehicles, household goods and work tools, among others. Many exemptions are limited by dollar value, however. Our experienced bankruptcy attorney can review your assets and debts, and determine which items you will be able to keep if you decide a bankruptcy filing is right for you.
