Bankruptcy Chapter 7 and 13 Help

Find out if Bankruptcy is the right solution to eliminate your debt!

Consumers are eligible to file for bankruptcy help under chapters 7 (liquidation) and 13 (wage earner’s) of the United States Bankruptcy Code. Bankruptcy will eliminate all of your unsecured debt, including all credit cards, medical bills, personal loans and payday loans, most debts from civil lawsuits and even some taxes. And you’ll likely be able to keep your home and car.

Debt is a hard fiscal opponent to battle, and the war will not likely be won without enlisting professional allies. Our accomplished team of bankruptcy Attorneys for Consumers can not only help formulate a plan of action, but can provide a shield from oncoming creditor attacks.

Plan of Action

A practiced bankruptcy attorney will begin with a financial evaluation determining what type of bankruptcy will best fit each financial situation. Once bankruptcy is filed, an immediate safeguard will be provided to the debtor by the bankruptcy code, and our firm will see to that all creditors abide by this strict code. Attorneys for Consumers will then navigate through the court system to ultimately reach full relief from harrowing debt.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

This is the bankruptcy chapter most commonly filed, and is for those deemed incapable of repaying their debts. Otherwise known as a liquidation, Chapter 7 debtors will undergo a careful review of assets to determine if any can be sold to repay creditors. Understanding that many hold their belongings close, our lawyers will work to shield our client’s valued assets under the exemptions to which they are entitled through bankruptcy law.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a repayment plan is set up under the protection of the bankruptcy code for those with enough disposable income to repay some of their debt. With an experienced hand, our bankruptcy attorney will draft an affordable repayment plan and provide representation to get the plan confirmed by the court. Chapter 13 debtors will continually receive personal attention throughout the term of the repayment plan and until their debt is discharged by the bankruptcy court.

Meeting of Creditors

Regardless of the chapter filed, all debtors are required to meet the trustee of their bankruptcy estate at a Meeting of Creditors. A bankruptcy attorney can prepare debtors for questions that a bankruptcy trustee will ask, and will even stand by their side at the meeting. While creditors are not required to attend this meeting, they are likely to in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In this event, our capable bankruptcy attorneys will be ready to respond on behalf of the debtor’s best interest.

Every warrior needs an experienced voice guiding them through the war-field of debt. With years of experience and a devotion to clients, our bankruptcy attorneys will see each debtor through to victory over debt.

Thanks, jennifer

    • A debt collector with a right to garnish (for example, arising from a judgment) can seize any non-exempt funds from your bank, and garnish up to 25% of your disposable income from your paycheck. However, the story you tell does not pass the “smell test” as either you didn’t get a fair chance to respond to the lawsuit or there was a likely improper service to begin with. You likely have experienced some sort of Fair Debt violation(s), and even if not, it sounds like you would benefit from re-prioritizing your debts through debt settlement, and the Debt Help Lawyers at this site can provide you a free, no obligation Fair Debt consultation.

  2. Filed bankruptcy in 2014but decided to leave auto off due to bank refinancing us in 2009 when we needed it…but had to voluntary repo it after wife lost her job unexpectedly…got verification of all payments from bank where it shows we have paid more interest than principle but are still wanting us to payout loan including interest ofover 13000. Plus interest. Total between principle interest and auction sale is more than what was owed when we drove off lot how can I fight this collection im only oneworking in home and bank refusing to accept that…

  3. My husband and i filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy a couple of years ago. We agreed with the approval of our trustee to voluntarily return one of our vehicles at the time was almost new. In the meantime the loan on our car was sold to a collection agency. We found this out on our own because our bankruptcy attorney, according to him has been unable to contact the collection agency who purchased the car loan.

    Here is the problem, we still have the car now for over a year since all of this happened. The original car loan people have no record of the loan now. The people who supposedly purchased the loan cannot be contacted as we have tried several times to make sure that they knew the car was here at our house 24/7 as we did not even license the vehicle after voluntarily turning the car back. No one knows what to do next, our attorney is useless, and our trustee tells us to contact our attorney. So we are in this endless loop. The cars original last payment is 12/2017 and after reading on line this company is famous for filing a law suit after that for collection of the debt unless the statue of limitations is up it sounds as though we could owe for this car even though we did everything correctly.

    We have both requested copies of our credit report. Neither the original loan nor the collection agency show on our credit reports.

    We are confused as to what to do next. Our attorney pushes it on us. Meanwhile there is a practically new car sitting in our driveway depreciating everyday. IF we are going to be held accountable for any balance after auction is it fair that at the time the loan should be paid the car would be 6 years old going to auction. It is fair yo say that it makes more since for a car to go to auction sooner than later and we are going to be sued then for a larger balance owing.

    Please can someone help!!! We are just trying to do the right thing here and return the car in its like new condition with only 18,000 miles!! The car is part of the original bankruptcy filed.

    Also, this attorney is the second attorney we have had. Our original attorney accepted a job somewhere else and is no longer practicing law. We paid him $3500. We had to hire another attorney to see us through to the end of our bankruptcy which cost us another $3500. We were filing bankruptcy because we had no money. $7000 later and we are still trying to find out answers on our own as directed by our most recent attorney. Why ???

  4. I’M IN BANKRUPCY SINCE MARCH 2015, AND I WAS INFORMED ABOUT THIS Charge will be in this bankruptcy included, please review this item and let me know about it,

    thanks so much

  5. Mom and I both names are on our Sba loan for fixing home from tsunami damage. I had quit job to care for mother with leukemia. She recently passed on March 2015 and I am now stuck with this loan. Should I file for bankruptcy for I am still looking for work, unsuccessful. In the meantime interest is building and I have no idea what I should do.

  6. I have a corporate credit card. I acquired debt, but I dispute the amount on the letter I received. (1) The name of the name of the original creditor is different from the name of the current creditor. In my response to the law firm, they did not address this issue within the 30-days I was allowed to respond – which I did. (2) The attorney sent copies of some of the charges I made, which they deem verification of notices – which I responded and disputed the total amount of the debt. The law firm has not responded back to me. (3) I have read over the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (federal law), along with the Arkansas Fair Debt Practices, and have found that the attorneys have represented themselves as having a judgment. I requested a copy of such judgment, but the attorneys have yet to produce one – more than 30-days. I will check with the local civil court for a copy – if it exist. This would not be practicing fair debt collections. (4) This credit card is a corporate card, and it was for my non-profit organization. I was not trying to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, if I could work out a payment plan with the law firm. I do not think the law firm is acting in good faith, nor the original creditor. I have all of my documentation from the original creditor, and the telephone # and address location. (5) I am already in a Ch. 13 for my personal credit. (6) Do I have any protection, or shall I continue to try to work out a payment plan with the law firm, if they come clean about what they really have in? It’s the language they used in their letter – claiming to have a judgment. I have NEVER received a copy. It is against the FDCPA laws to claim you have filed a legal document when you have not – false or misleading representatives. Mary C. Wiggins, B.A., B.A.
