What a Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Do For You:
In addition to understanding all options for successful debt relief, an experienced and committed bankruptcy lawyer can address and solve all types of debt problems under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Bankruptcy law was created for your protection from overwhelming debt through a comprehensive set of laws that were specifically enacted to assure individuals and small businesses a financial fresh start.
An experienced bankruptcy lawyer can help with all forms of debt, including unsecured debt and secured debt. Unsecured debt, as listed below, can be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and discharged or modified under Chapter 13. Secured debt cannot be completely eliminated, but it can often be modified or reduced, depending on the type and value of the secured assets. All types of tax debts can be eliminated or modified.
The proper use of bankruptcy to discharge your unsecured debt allows you and your family the income necessary to repay other more important bills, like your mortgage, rent and car payment. It also allows you to reallocate limited financial resources to rebuild your financial future with the stability necessary for long-term financial security.
Unsecured, or dischargeable debt, is any of the following:
- Credit Card debt
- Divorce debt (properly utilized, Chapter 13 can sometimes be used to alter unpayable divorce decrees)
- Foreclosure deficiencies
- Tax debt (if old enough under several factors)
- Medical debt
- Personal guarantees
- Co-signed and joint debts
- Repossession deficiencies
- Pay day loan debt
- Personal loans
- Business debt
- Gambling debt
With the assistance and knowledge of our debt relief lawyers at The Law Offices of Neil Crane, LLC, you can benefit from the opportunities available under the law to discharge your burdensome debt load with a well-planned, well-informed strategy that is the best possible resolution in your particular situation. Discharging debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy will allow you to completely eliminate these debts and gain a financial fresh start.
