Bankruptcy Help In Maryland Heights, MO

It’s incredibly stressful trying to weather the storm of financial hardship. When bills pile up, creditors start to call, and your home and method of transportation are on the line, it’s easy to feel like all hope is lost. Fortunately, legal help is available in the form of bankruptcy. 

If you’re considering filing bankruptcy with a Maryland Heights bankruptcy lawyer, it’s important to do your due diligence before making a decision. We’ve compiled information on both bankruptcy and our bankruptcy law firm below. 

The Basics Of Bankruptcy 

Bankruptcy is a legal process designed to give debtors overburdened with debt a fresh financial start. Bankruptcy is available to both consumers and businesses, but our firm specializes in consumer bankruptcies. There are two forms of consumer bankruptcy: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13

Chapter 7 bankruptcies are the most popular and well known types of bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcies are considered liquidation or complete bankruptcies because they allow debtors to discharge all unsecured debts (payday loans, medical bills, signature loans, utility bills, deficiency debt, credit card bills, etc.) if certain qualifications are met. 

On the other hand, Chapter 13 bankruptcies are considered debt modification or restructuring bankrutpcies, because your debt is restructured into a more affordable repayment plan. Repayment plans last anywhere from 36 to 60 months and will allow you to pay pennies on the dollar towards your outstanding debt. While most of your debt will be repaid, you can still discharge certain debts. 

Both types of bankruptcies have their benefits and the best form of bankruptcy will vary depending on your current financial situation. Regardless of the type of bankruptcy you file, there are many benefits to filing for bankruptcy. Benefits include:
