Kirkwood Bankruptcy Lawyer

On its face, tackling mounting debt can seem like an insurmountable task. However, federal and state law recognizes how difficult it can be to eliminate debt and regain financial stability. That is precisely why legal protections have been put in place to protect debtors in the face of overwhelming debt. Interested in learning more about what a Kirkwood bankruptcy lawyer could do for you? We’ve compiled information on both bankruptcy and our firm below. 

About Bankruptcy 

As you likely already know, bankruptcy is a legal process that gives debtors (individuals or entities that owe debt) the ability to earn a fresh start. Both businesses and individuals can file for bankruptcy, but our law firm exclusively handles consumer bankruptcies. There are two types of consumer bankruptcies: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13

With a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all of your unsecured debt will be discharged. This means that you will no longer owe this debt. Unsecured debt is any debt that isn’t backed by some form of collateral. Types of unsecured debt include payday loans, medical bills, credit card debt, utility bills, and more. 

On the other hand, Chapter 13 bankruptcies focus less on eliminating debt and more on restructuring it. You may still be able to discharge certain forms of debt, but you’ll end up repaying most of it. The benefit to a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that your debt will be rolled up into a monthly payment plan where you’ll pay pennies on the dollar for what you owe. 

Regardless of which type of bankruptcy you file, there are a number of benefits both types of bankruptcies will yield. Benefits to filing for bankruptcy include: 

Legal Help Is Available

While you could file for bankruptcy on your own, it’s never advised. If you make an error while filing, the outcome could be disastrous with adverse consequences lasting for several years.
