Understanding Your Options for Bankruptcy

We can discuss your options for declaring bankruptcy, fighting creditor harassment, and avoiding foreclosures and wage garnishment.
The main chapters of bankruptcy include:
Understanding the pros and cons of each is essential to building a plan to resolve your debts that works best with you and your finances. For example, if you have few significant assets and are looking for immediate debt relief for a fresh start, Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the liquidation of your assets in order to pay off any debt. However, if you own property that you don't want to risk losing, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can allow you to configure payment plans to allow you to pay off your debt over time while maintaining significant assets. An attorney at the Law Offices of James C. Shields can discuss each chapter in depth with you to determine the best option for your situation.
