In Brief: The Benefits Of Bankruptcy
Immediately upon filing bankruptcy, you receive an automatic stay, which prevents creditors from continuing to call and harass you. The automatic stay also protects from foreclosure, judgment liens, vehicle repossessions, wage garnishments and lawsuits. When the bankruptcy is complete, qualifying unsecured debts are discharged, meaning that you no longer have to pay them.
What To Consider When You're Considering Bankruptcy
The decision to file bankruptcy is complicated, and which chapter you should file depends on several factors. Your income and the types of assets that you hold will qualify you for either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 is commonly filed by individuals and businesses, while Chapter 13 can only be filed by individuals.
Other deciding factors are the nature of your debt and your intentions for the future. Are you filing to relieve personal debt, or debt incurred by a business that you manage? Are you looking for a fresh start, or are you hoping to save and continue operating your business? Do you need immediate relief for a specific problem, like foreclosure or eviction?
Ms. Langston will discuss your situation with you, make sure that you understand your legal options and prepare you for filing bankruptcy or for pursuing an alternative if advantageous to do so.
