Quickly discharge your debt with Chapter 7 bankruptcy

When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the court issues an immediate automatic stay that prevents creditors from contacting you to collect. So, no more harassing phone calls! Other benefits include:

  • Discharge of eligible debt — You cannot discharge certain debts, such as student loans, secured loans, most back taxes, unpaid child support and alimony, and debt taken on too recently. Your dischargeable debt includes credit card balances, utility bills, unsecured personal loans, and medical bills.
  • Keeping your exempt assets — Although Chapter 7 is called liquidation, it is very rare to be required to hand over assets for sale.
  • Quick process — For most consumers, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is completed within a few short months.

But, not everyone qualifies for Chapter 7. If you earn far more than the statewide median income for a household of the same size, you probably won’t qualify.

Get relief by restructuring your debt with Chapter 13 bankruptcy

If you make too much money to qualify for Chapter 7, or you want to stop foreclosure on your home or repossession of your car, Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be the better option. You still get the immediate automatic stay, so your creditors must stop their collection efforts. But instead of a quick discharge of your eligible debt, you must participate in a court-approved payment plan. Your payment plan, which we help you prepare, is based on your monthly disposable income. You make one payment per month, which the bankruptcy trustee distributes to your creditors. Depending on your annual earnings, your plan can last from three to five years, after which the bankruptcy judge discharges your remaining eligible debt.

“I was nervous going into the bankruptcy process. Matt was absolutely fantastic and put me at ease from the time of filing to discharge. He and Laura answered every one of my emails
Within the same day. I would highly recommend this law firm.”
-Doug R. ★★★★★

“After speaking with other attorneys who wouldn’t listen to me or give me their full attention, I contacted Field & Associates. I was VERY impressed with the professionalism and concern for my situation. I was listened to, and felt I was in good hands. Price and payment options were negotiated to suit my needs. My attorney kept me informed very timely with updates, and treated me like I was a personal friend. This was the smoothest legal proceeding I’ve dealt with because of Field & Associates. Thank you Mr. Nash!”
-M.K. ★★★★★

“While bankruptcy is not something you want, this is the firm you want working for you. Having consulted with three other firms and gotten conflicting info, I was hesitant and nervous when I met Matt. He actually took the time to listen to the background story of why and he explained my options so that I felt completely at ease …knowing I made the right choice. Did not feel like I was part of a bankruptcy filing mill. When issues arose, he and Laura answered the questions and guided me thru the process. Even during the court hearing with the trustee, I saw Matt’s professionalism compared to the other lawyers present with their clients. I actually felt sorry for some of the people there. I can not say enough about Fields Law and how they helped a painful time of life to become a step in a new beginning.”
-Brett S. ★★★★★
