The burden of debt brought on by joblessness, medical issues, divorce or an income that simply cannot meet our rising cost of living can negatively impact a person’s entire life. It can affect self-esteem, relationships and one’s professional life.

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most (if not all) of your unsecured debt– medical bills, credit cards, unsecured loans, etc– is eliminated. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is ideal if you do not have a significant amount of assets and your debt exceeds more than you could ever reasonably repay. Upon filing, most of your creditors are prohibited from continuing collection activities, such as shutting off your utilities, garnishing your wages, or going after your bank account, car or other property.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to repay your creditors a reduced percentage of your debt under an affordable repayment plan. Common reasons to consider filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy include the threat of foreclosure, the repossession or threatened repossession of your vehicle and in some cases the suspension of your driver’s license. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can provide significant debt relief and protection from creditors.
