Why would I need a lawyer for Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

There’s a reason you need someone with experience in defending your bankruptcy case—it’s not easy to navigate bankruptcy correctly. First, there are tons of regulations on bankruptcy, and second, those regulations change often. So you need someone who has experience in representing bankruptcy clients, and someone who stay up to date on the latest changes. Even the first step of choosing your bankruptcy chapter affects the entire process, so your lawyer needs to know exactly what they’re doing. The vast majority of consumers choose between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy Westland because they were designed to help consumers. If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the following debts could be dismissed:

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


However, Chapter 7 can’t get every kind of debt dismissed. These are the debts you can’t get dismissed with Chapter 7 bankruptcy: certain taxes, cooperative housing fees, debts for personal injury from a DUI accident, debts for willful or malicious injuries, spousal support, alimony, child support, debts for the certain condominium fees, debts for most government-funded educational loans, victim restitution, or court-ordered fines.

When you file for Westland Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can’t be held individually responsible for your debts anymore due to the automatic stay. The automatic stay not only does that, but it will also stop creditors from trying any kind of collections from you while bankruptcy is active.
