Is Bankruptcy Right for Me?

People are often hesitant to file for bankruptcy, given the stigma attached to it. However, filing for bankruptcy can give you the chance to hit the restart button your financial situation needs.

Here are some questions for you to consider:

  • Can you pay off your debts? For many, there are almost no other options available to resolve their debts. If you already tried negotiating with your creditors or sold off assets to get money and still cannot make a dent in your debts, bankruptcy may be your only choice.
  • Are you eligible? Depending on your finances, you may be eligible for a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Generally, low-income earners and those without any disposable income qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you earn a substantial amount of income, you may still qualify for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. You can discuss these details with a member of our team to learn which is best for you.
  • Are creditors harassing you? If you are receiving harassing phone calls and letters from creditors, they will likely try to sue you and take a money judgment against you. Once you begin the process of filing for bankruptcy, it will halt all actions against you.
  • Is your home going through foreclosure or your vehicle is being repossessed? If you fell behind on your house or car payments, filing for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can delay it and give you the chance to catch up on your payments.

Of course, the only way to know for sure if bankruptcy is right for your situation is to speak to one of our attorneys to learn more about your options and how you can get started on repairing your credit.
