Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
- Do you feel overwhelmed by your monthly debts?
- Do you cringe every time you sit down to pay bills because of the enormity of what you owe?
- Do you feel defeated because you know that even if you keep up with the monthly minimum payments, you will never be able to pay off the debts in your lifetime?
- Have you stopped opening your mail or answering the phone all together?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. This form of bankruptcy will permit you to discharge most, if not all of your unsecured debts.
When you file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, your home may not be affected if you have $25,000 or less in equity, though every situation is unique. It is important to note that IRS debt, student loans, alimony, and child support are not dischargeable.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
- Are behind on your mortgage
- Have significant tax debt
- Have higher than average income
Then you may be eligible to file for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy affords debtors with steady income to develop a plan to repay part or all of their debts. During this time period, collection efforts on the part of creditors is prohibited.
