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.
