Considering Filing for Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a process that gives you a financial fresh start, freeing you from overwhelming debt burdens. Chapter 7, also called “liquidation” or “straight bankruptcy,” is what many people connect with a bankruptcy case. As a debtor, your assets are sold, creditors receive payment, and you are freed from your debts.

There are several types of bankruptcy, and Chapter 7 is generally the simplest and quickest form. It’s available to individuals, married couples, corporations and partnerships. Know what to expect if you file a Chapter 7 case, and how you can have a fresh start within a few months.

You must be eligible to file for bankruptcy, and the rules vary depending on the type of case you want to file. Contact us now for a free consultation.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is intended for individuals with a regular income who can repay their debts in three to five years. Your business debts are eligible for Chapter 13 relief if the business is organized as a side proprietorship, which means you are self-employed. Corporations and partnerships are not eligible for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and must file under Chapter 11 to recognize debts.
