We don’t consider bankruptcy to be a failure; it is a legal opportunity to get a fresh financial start. At our office, we place a premium on communication and personal service, making certain that you always understand the law and the process, as well as your options, so that you can make informed decisions.
Our Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Practice
In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, you are allowed to permanently discharge certain debts in exchange for the sale/liquidation of non-exempt assets. Under the recent revisions to the bankruptcy laws, you must qualify to discharge debts under Chapter 7 under the “means test.”
We will walk you through the means test to determine if you are eligible for protection under Chapter 7. If so, we will prepare and file all the necessary documents to complete the process, and will act as your advocate with creditors, the bankruptcy trustee and the Court. We will make certain that you understand which debts can and cannot be discharged before you file. We will also advise you as to what property you can keep after filing for bankruptcy. Many times, someone filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 can keep their house and car.
