Why would I need a Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer?

Bankruptcy is no simple process. With all of the ever-changing rules and regulations that govern bankruptcy, it’s not wise to go through the process on your own. Having a lawyer with great expertise, like the ones at Detroit Bankruptcy Law, will ensure that you get the outcome you’re hoping for. Most consumers pick between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy depending on their unique situation, as those two give consumers the best results.

Choosing Chapter 7 bankruptcy Southfield will often get most of your debts dismissed. These are the debts that can be dismissed:

  • Credit card debt
  • Past-due utility bills
  • Auto repossession
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans

However, Chapter 7 bankruptcy doesn’t wipe out all kinds of debts. These are the debts that won’t be dismissed: debts for certain condominium or cooperative housing fees, child support, debts from willful or malicious injuries, debts for most government-funded educational loans, debts for personal injury related to a DUI accident, spousal support, alimony, victim restitution, certain taxes, or court-ordered fines.

The moment you’ve filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy Southfield, no one can hold you alone responsible for your debt any longer. This also puts the automatic stay into place, and that means that creditors cannot contact you in any way during your bankruptcy period. That includes collection attempts.
