OlsenDaines is a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Banktuptcy Code.
When you file bankruptcy, you can choose the kind of bankruptcy that best meets your needs (provided you meet certain qualifications): Chapter 7 - A trustee is appointed to take over your property. Any property of value will be sold or turned into money to pay your creditors. You may be able to keep some personal items and possibly real estate depending on the law of the state where you live and applicable federal laws. Chapter 13 - You can usually keep your property, but you must earn wages or have some other source of regular income and you must agree to pay part of your income to your creditors. The court must approve your repayment plan and your budget. A trustee is appointed and will collect the payments from you, pay your creditors, and make sure you live up to the terms of your repayment plan. OlsenDaines can help you choose the path that will benefit your person situation to the fullest. And we will guide you through every step.
