What Are the Advantages of Filing for Bankruptcy?
The U.S. government created the bankruptcy system to give individuals and business owners the opportunity to find a fresh start. Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows individuals to gather their debts and, at the end of the process, see them partly or totally dismissed or made more manageable with a repayment plan. While bankruptcy laws are ultimately meant to help, the process itself can be complex. Each type of bankruptcy has its own requirements and rules and a failure to follow these rules can lead to additional financial consequences.
If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, we strongly encourage you to reach out to our firm. Attorney Maurice "Mac" VerStandig has years of experience handling complex bankruptcy cases and has deep roots in the local courts. He understands economic growth pockets, where there are opportunities for consumers, and the nuances of Federal Court. As a preeminent local bankruptcy attorney, you can trust The Belmont Firm to handle your case with the professionalism, care, and compassion you deserve.
Our Bankruptcy & Debt Relief Services
- Chapter 7: This form of bankruptcy liquidates assets to pay off creditors. Those seeking Chapter 7 must be eligible via a means test.
- Chapter 13: This helps those who have a regular income create a repayment plan to pay back some or all of their debts over a period of 3 to 5 years.
- Chapter 11: This is a “reorganization” bankruptcy for business owners. Like Chapter 13, Chapter 11 proposes a plan to pay back their debts over time, while keeping their business alive.
- Debt relief for individuals and students: We can explore various strategies to consolidate, negotiate, manage, reduce, eliminate, and settle your debts and student loans.
