Consumer Bankruptcy in Georgia

Experienced Athens consumer bankruptcy attorneys serving Gainesville, Douglasville, Dallas, Loganville, Duluth, Decatur, Buford and the Atlanta metropolitan area

Many people assume only individuals can file for consumer bankruptcy in Georgia. However, even businesses facing debt issues can turn to consumer bankruptcy filings as long as they include their business income and deductions as part of their personal federal income taxes.

Whether you are an individual facing financial concerns after losing a job or paying for a family emergency, or if you are self-employed and unable to meet the expenses of your business, an experienced Athens consumer bankruptcy attorney from Jeff Field & Associates can help determine if bankruptcy provides your best option for debt relief.

Determining when consumer bankruptcy is the right choice

No one should take the decision to file for bankruptcy lightly. It can carry certain long-term consequences that some individuals may want to avoid, such as loss of personal property and a significant credit rating reduction. This is why the experienced consumer bankruptcy attorneys at Jeff Field & Associates work closely with clients to examine their financial details — and their personal needs and goals — to determine if consumer bankruptcy represents the only option available.

The United States Courts provide extensive information on a number of different bankruptcy options. However, individuals most commonly choose Chapter 7 if they qualify to fully discharge their debt through liquidation, or Chapter 13 if they have the financial means to repay their debt through loan modification, even to help prevent foreclosures.

However, filing bankruptcy is a detailed and stressful process that may not address all issues, such as when student loans or unpaid taxes represent the majority of your outstanding debt. As a full-service debt relief agency, Jeff Field & Associates analyzes your situation to determine if you qualify for bankruptcy or if another debt relief option makes more sense to achieve the results you need.
