The particular impact that bankruptcy will have on you now and into the future will vary depending on your unique financial situation. That is why we strongly recommend discussing your specific case with our firm. We can address whatever concerns you may have and can offer you much needed help with excessive debt through bankruptcy or other forms of debt relief that are available to you.

Types of Bankruptcy:

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy are the most common forms of bankruptcy. Depending on the type of debt you are dealing with, your income versus expenses and whether you have valuable assets that need protection, one of these two options may be best for you. Filing for bankruptcy can effectively stop foreclosure and end all debt collection efforts and lawsuits against you, finally giving you some breathing room and enabling you to work toward a brighter financial future. We can also explain the benefits of divorce & bankruptcy, and how you might want to think about filing before you commence divorce proceedings.
