How Can Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Help?

Chapter 7 offers the type of debt relief most people think of when they consider filing for bankruptcy. Under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, a debtor may petition the court to eliminate many types of consumer debts, including credit card debt, personal loans, medical bills and tax arrears. One of the most important benefits of filing for Chapter 7 is that most people are allowed to keep the house and car, by agreeing to pay their mortgage and car payments on time.

Not everyone qualifies for Chapter 7. There is a means test that will apply to your income and debt ratio. We can also show you the benefits of Chapter 13 bankruptcy to restructure your debt into an affordable payment plan.

Think Of Chapter 7 As An Investment In Your Family’s Financial Future

It is understandable that credit card companies and banks want people to feel bad about walking away from their debts. The truth is, when you use a credit card or take out a loan, the deck is heavily stacked in favor of the creditor making a substantial amount of money from high interest rates, late fees and penalties. Did you know that making minimum payments on just $1,000 credit card balance will take nearly 20 years to pay off? Even if you never used the card again.

End Creditor Harassment — NOW!

If you have been deep in debt for the past several months or more, you know how terrible it feels to hear a debt collector on the telephone or to find a threatening collections letter in your mailbox. When you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the courts put an automatic stay (stop) on any collections or legal actions your creditors may have in process. Credit card companies and loan officers will be required to make all further contacts directly with your attorney. How long has it been since you felt good about your financial future.

The day you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • You can tell the bill collectors to call your lawyer.
  • All wage garnishment actions against you will stop.
  • All liens against your personal property will be put on hold.
  • Any legal actions your creditor may be taking against you will stop.
  • You can start saving for your children’s future or your retirement.
