Why would I need a Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer?

Bankruptcy can be a confusing process. There are plenty of options available, and they are split into two groups, consumer and business. For consumers, the most common chapters of bankruptcy are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most of your debt will be discharged. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney Bay City, debts like these will be discharged:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loan forgiveness
  • Debt from credit cards
  • Car repossession
  • Past-due utility expenses

You cannot discharge these debts with Chapter 7 bankruptcy: certain taxes, court-ordered fines, spousal support or alimony, child support, debts for personal injury related to DUI accidents, and debts for a certain condominium or cooperative housing fees, debts for most government-funded educational loans, victim restitution, or debts for willful or malicious injuries. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you are no longer individually responsible for your debts. You are protected by the automatic stay that starts once you file for bankruptcy. This means that creditors cannot try to collect from you.

How we can help:

We understand that filing might be worrisome but know that we will work with you to find the best solution. We can do the following with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • Calls, letters, and all kinds of communication with creditors must be stopped.
  • Prevent your home from being foreclosed on.
  • Put an end to any repossessions.
  • Put an end to wage garnishment.
  • Put an end to creditor harassment.
  • Put an end to any pending litigation against you.
