Discharge debt quickly with Chapter 7 bankruptcy

When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the court immediately issues an automatic stay that prohibits your creditors from contacting you to try to collect. The harassing phone calls are over! Other benefits include:

  • Discharge of eligible debt — You cannot discharge every type of debt. Secured loans, student loans, most delinquent taxes, back child support and alimony, and debt taken on too recently are not dischargeable. But you can discharge credit card balances, utility bills, unsecured personal loans, and medical bills.
  • Holding onto exempt assets — Although Chapter 7 is called liquidation, it is very rare to have property taken. You can hold onto many types of real property, personal property, and financial assets up to certain limits.
  • Quick process — A typical Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be completed within a few short months.

However, Chapter 7 is not for everyone. Debtors who earn far more than the statewide median income for a household their size may not qualify.

Restructure your debt and get relief with Chapter 13 bankruptcy

If you don’t qualify for Chapter 7 or if you want to stop foreclosure on your home or repossession of a valuable motor vehicle, Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be a better option. With Chapter 13 you get the same automatic stay, so your creditors must stop all collection efforts. But instead of getting a quick discharge of your eligible debts, you present a payment plan to the court. This payment plan, which we work with you to prepare, is based on your income, living expenses, and debts. You make a payment to the bankruptcy trustee who distributes funds to your creditors. Depending on your situation, the payment plan can last from three to five years.

Chapter 13 is often the best choice for homeowners who’ve fallen behind on their mortgages but want to stop foreclosure and stay in their homes.
