Benton, Illinois Bankruptcy Assistance

There is perhaps nothing more emotionally or financially stressful than realizing you don’t have the funds to pay your bills. When bills pile up for months, the amount of outstanding debt can feel overwhelming. However, there are solutions available to remedy overwhelming debt. In filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can:

  1. 1) End Creditor Harassment
  2. 2) Protect Your Possessions
  3. 3) Avoid Home Foreclosure
  4. 4) Save Your Retirement Savings
  5. 5) Stop Vehicle Repossession
  6. 6) Eliminate Credit Card Debt

If these benefits sound like something you could use, A Bankruptcy Law Firm, LLC is here to help. Our firm has helped hundreds of Benton residents recover from the regressive effects of mounting debt. Our specialization in consumer bankruptcies affords us the ability to file your bankruptcy case in a timely manner with exceptional results.

Why Call A Bankruptcy Law Firm?

In short, the best thing you can do when debt begins to pile is understand your options. Debtors without a full understanding of the courses of action they could take have historically resorted to:

  1. 1) Stressing close relationships by borrowing money from friends and family/li>
  2. 2) Taking out cash advances on credit cards
  3. 3) Unnecessarily liquidating retirement accounts to pay bills
  4. 4) Accidentally selling assets that are protected from creditors
  5. 5) Writing bad checks that could result in prosecution or high bank fees
  6. 6) Engaging in fraudulent/illegal activity or gambling to earn cash
  7. 7) Securing loans from payday loan companies at rates of up to 300%

The aforementioned courses of action above might eliminate debt short-term, but they can ultimately yield extremely harmful long-term effects. The last thing you you want to do is prevent your financial recovery for years or decades to come. When you call A Bankruptcy Law Firm, LLC, you’ll have an attorney, CPA, and investor reviewing your finances. Our team can help you identify solutions for crippling debt and zone in on the solution that makes the most sense for your specific set of circumstances.
