Bankruptcy is often an effective tool for eliminating or restructuring debts in order to provide a fresh start to individuals, families, and businesses. Many people who file bankruptcy retain their homes, automobiles, retirement accounts, and household items, and they still obtain the benefit of a discharge of some or all of their debts. A bankruptcy filing usually stops collection activities including foreclosures, repossessions, lawsuits, garnishments and harrassing letters and phone calls. For married couples we will examine whether both spouses should file a case and, where appropriate, we may recommend the filing by only one spouse.
Some types of debt cannot always be discharged, such as student loans and certain taxes. However, even those debts are often more easily managed with the help of Chapter 13 payment plans. Contrary to popular myth, bankruptcy relief is available to people with homes, cars, businesses and substantial incomes. A thorough, free consultation with a bankruptcy lawyer is a quick, confidential way to learn which options are available and to understand more fully the bankruptcy process.
