Chapter 7

As the most common type of bankruptcy filed in the U.S., Chapter 7 can be used to eliminate debts for individuals, married couples, and business owners. It is known as a “liquidation bankruptcy” but that does not mean someone who files will have to give up all of their personal possessions. Flores Law PLLC will work to make sure you do not lose your protected assets and equity by taking advantage of available exemption laws.

When filing for Chapter 7, harassment from creditors will stop and any garnishment being taken from your wages or your bank account will end. When you have unpaid debts, creditors can sell those debts to collection agencies and list them on your credit report. This can lower your credit score and prevent you from leasing an apartment, financing a vehicle, or buying a home. Creditors and collection agencies send you endless notices in the mail and harass you relentlessly over the phone. After filing for bankruptcy, you can open your mail and answer the phone without fear.

Chapter 13

Known as the “wage earner’s bankruptcy,” Chapter 13 is for those with a steady income that is still not enough to get out of debt. It can save certain non-exempt assets that would be sold in Chapter 7 while restructuring your debt into a plan to be paid off in 3-5 years. After the payment plan is completed, the rest of your unsecured debt may be discharged. Like in Chapter 7, a Chapter 13 filing puts an automatic stay on all collection attempts, protecting you from annoying phone calls, lawsuits, and other collection attempts. Chapter 13 can also help put a stop to foreclosure and repossession, allowing you to keep your home and your vehicle.

Debt can be accrued in a number of ways, the most common of which is credit card debt from exorbitant interest fees and getting behind on payments, which can take years to pay off, and medical expenses when your insurance company doesn’t protect you like it should. Unpaid medical bills can go to collections and negatively affect your credit for years. Sometimes, a payday loan is your only option. The predatory interest, however, can land you in a worse position than before.
