Understanding Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is not a process to be ashamed of going through. It’s your right as an American citizen to exercise the protections afforded to you by both the federal and state government. Bankruptcy is designed to protect debtors from the shackles of overwhelming debt. Bankruptcy is offered to both businesses and consumers, but our law firm exclusively focuses on filing bankruptcy for consumers. There are two types of consumer bankruptcy: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as a complete liquidation bankruptcy, because it wipes out all unsecured debts. Unsecured debts include credit card debt, payday loans, signature loans, medical bills, utility bills, and more. You must meet certain qualifications to be able to file for a Chapter 7.
