Chapters of Bankruptcy
It is essential to resolving debt that you understand your legal options. We understand that overcoming debt is not easy, and want to provide you with the tools to know the best way to move forward. Declaring bankruptcy can allow you to form plans for debt relief according to your unique situation.
Contact our lawyers to discuss the following chapters of bankruptcy:
- Chapter 7
- Chapter 13
If you declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your assets may be liquidated and the money made from the sale will be given to your creditors. This is an ideal option for individuals with little or no significant assets seeking immediate debt resolution. However, if you have a home or other property that you don't want to risk losing, you might be better served declaring Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Through this method, you can work with your creditors to formulate a payment plan to pay off your debt over a longer period of time, which will lessen the pressure on you and allow you to maintain your assets.
We at the Law Offices of James C. Shields hold your unique needs as our number one priority. We will evaluate your case and discuss your options with you to ensure you have the best shot at a debt-free future. You don't have to drown in your debts; let us help you find your way out.
