Why would I need a Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer?

Honestly, bankruptcy is not an easy procedure. There is a range of options for those in debt, which are divided into two categories: business and consumer. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are the most common consumer bankruptcies.

The bulk of your debt is discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A debtor in Port Huron who files with our Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney can discharge unsecured obligations such as:

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

There are certain debts you cannot discharge under Chapter 7: spousal support or alimony, child support, certain taxes, court-ordered fines, victim restitution, debts for willful or malicious injuries, debts for most government-funded educational loans, debts for personal injury related to DUI accidents, and debts for the certain condominium or cooperative housing fees.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy protects debtors from financial obligations with an automatic stay, meaning the debtor will no longer be held individually responsible. This also means that creditors cannot try to collect those debts from you in the future.

How we can help:

We know it can be an overwhelming process to file but know that we will do everything we can to make finding the best solution as low-stress as possible for you. We can do the following with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

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