A Few Facts About Bankruptcy Law
Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to eliminate only your consumer debt, but allows you to keep your mortgage and car.
Chapter 13 debt relief allows you to consolidate ALL of your debt, including student loans and taxes into a structured debt repayment plan.
Approximately ninety-five percent of American workers still qualify for bankruptcy under the Chapter 7 laws.
Most people who file for bankruptcy are hardworking, honest people who have repaid their original amount borrowed, but can't get ahead of the interest.
