Bankruptcy allows people struggling with debt to get a fresh start. The most common form of Bankruptcy is Chapter 7, while some people may only qualify for Chapter 13. We offer a Financial Review Session to determine whether filing bankruptcy is the right option for you.

Chapter 7 is the most common form of bankruptcy. Filing Chapter 7 allows a person to eliminate debts that are considered dischargeable. To qualify for Chapter 7, you must meet certain income requirements.
Chapter 13 is known as a “wage earners” bankruptcy, and allows a person to pay back some or all of his or her debts over a 36-60 month period. To be eligible for Chapter 13, you must have a steady income.
In most cases, a Chapter 13 can stop a foreclosure and help homeowners keep their home. Homeowners who file a Chapter 13 may also have the option of stripping a lien. This involves filing a lawsuit as a separate action in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
If your license is suspended, Chapter 13 may be your only option. Once a Chapter 13 petition is filed, your license must automatically be reinstated. As long as you complete your plan, your license will remain unsuspended.
