Federal bankruptcy laws and the state of Missouri offers very forgiving bankruptcy laws which allows debtors to discharge most unsecured debts. Under Federal and Missouri law, individuals can be forgiven for medical expenses, credit card debt, civil lawsuit judgements, deficiency debt related to home foreclosures and car repossessions, payday loan debt, and more.

Filing A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy In St. Louis

Chapter 7 bankruptcies allow debtors to eliminate most unsecured debt with a few exceptions. Debts such as medical bills, credit card debt, and payday loans can all be discharged with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In many ways, filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy is filing for a fresh start free from debt.

Of course, not everyone is eligible to file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Debtors must pass the means test to be eligible to file for a Chapter 7 in St. Louis. If a debtor doesn’t pass the means test, they can still file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The experienced Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys at A Bankruptcy Law Firm, LLC can help you determine if you qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and if it’s the best route for your financial situation. We offer free consultations to provide you with valuable legal and financial insights at no cost.

Filing A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy In St. Louis

Chapter 13 bankruptcies differ from Chapter 7 bankruptcies in that they are more of a debt restructuring as opposed to debt elimination. Some debt can still be discharged, but a large portion of the outstanding debt is worked into an affordable monthly repayment plan. Debtors usually end up paying pennies on the dollar for outstanding secured unsecured debt and receive various benefits for secured debts.

If you’re considering filing for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy in St. Louis, the Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorneys at A Bankruptcy Law Firm, LLC can help you determine if a Chapter 13 bankruptcy makes sense for your financial situation.
