Hi, I’m Robert Geller. I am a consumer bankruptcy attorney in the Tampa Bay area.
One of the greatest benefits of filing for bankruptcy is eliminating medical bills. Medical bills are one of the primary reasons people file for bankruptcy. Unfortunately, many people don’t know that a bankruptcy can get rid of medical bills.
Medical bills aren’t the only type of debt that’s discharged in bankruptcy. A bankruptcy can potentially get rid of income tax or certain types of income tax. There are some limitations on what income tax a bankruptcy will get rid of, but if you have unpaid taxes, it might help to speak to a bankruptcy attorney.
Bankruptcy can also help you get your driver’s license back. If you were involved in an automobile accident and didn’t have insurance, and lost your license as a result, bankruptcy can potentially help you start driving again.
Bankruptcy can also potentially get rid of student loans.
The benefits of filing for bankruptcy, for many people, outweigh any of the downside. It truly helps them get back on track. But the most common reasons people choose to file for bankruptcy is to deal with medical bills and some types of income tax.
I’m attorney Robert Geller and I want to help you build a bridge to a brighter future. Thank you.
