FAQ

When should you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Many people avoid filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy immediately and attempt to repay creditors and stay current despite their financial challenges. When this is not possible, it is best to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy early to avoid adding to the debt. If you are experiencing difficulties in meeting payments on debt, contact our bankruptcy attorneys.

When to file bankruptcy Chapter 7?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be a way to discharge many types of debts, but it does not discharge all debts, including student loans, child support, or tax arrears. In general, if you cannot arrange a repayment plan with the creditors, talking to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible is recommended. Delaying the process only adds to the debt over time.

How can I file for bankruptcy?

There are specific requirements that must be met in order to file for bankruptcy. This can be a complicated formula based on income, assets, and debt, so we recommend working with one of our Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys to determine what type of bankruptcy to consider.
