Bankruptcy Attorney

Our firm only handles financial cases and focuses exclusively on these individuals. Part of our learning process over the years is that a consumer based firm really can’t do more than one area of practice well. That is why we stopped practicing in other areas of law. We are laser focused on solving our client’s financial problems only. We don’t want anything distracting us from this goal, so we only accept financial cases. It’s tempting at times to handle other types of cases that routinely present themselves, but we know from the past this will only distract us from what we are already very good at which would be a disservice to our clients. We are very content being the leader in financial cases only!

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy OptionsChapter 7 Bankruptcy
If you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a trustee will collect all your non-exempt assets. They will sell them to pay your debtors and lawyers. The goal for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to get an “exemption” of debts by the bankruptcy courts. If granted, you will no longer be liable for these debts.  Consumer bankruptcy often consists of medical and credit card bill debt. Some consumer debts are dischargeable, which means they cannot be “wiped” by bankruptcy.

Non-Exempt Debt:

  • Any debt you did not include in your bankruptcy petition
  • Many types of taxes
  • Child support or alimony
  • Fines and penalties owed to government agencies
  • Student loans
  • Personal injury debts that come from a drunk driving accident
  • Liabilities arising out of tax-advantaged retirement plans
  • Condo and cooperative housing fee debts
  • Attorneys’ fees for child custody or support
  • Criminal restitution and other court fines and penalties

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also known as repayment bankruptcy, which contrasts Chapter 7. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is about using your assets to pay down debts. Whereas Chapter 7 bankruptcy, lets you liquidate all your debts and use collateral. You can choose to pay back the total amount you owe or pay a large sum of your debts over 3-5 years. During this time frame, you will have to make monthly payments to the trustee. They will distribute these payments to creditors according to their priority status.  

Priority debts include:

  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Certain taxes
  • Wages owed to employees 

Along with your priority payment plan, you must also address your secured debts. These are debts secured by collateral, like your mortgage or car loan. You must also commit to making regular back payments on any payments in arrears. If you have many mortgages on your house, there are tools you can use to make mortgage modifications. 

For instance: If your junior mortgage is no longer secured by the value of the house, choose to use “home lien stripping.” This will remove one or more junior mortgages. There are similar processes for car loans, as well. Any disposable income left over after paying priority debts will repay unsecured debts. Any secured debts you have will also help with repayments. Unsecured debts are not secured by collateral. They include credit cards and medical debt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bankruptcy is a legal proceeding involving a person or business that is unable to repay their outstanding debts. The bankruptcy process begins with a petition is filed by the debtor.

The two most common forms of consumer bankruptcy are a Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

For a Chapter 7, you must wait 8 years from the date of filing your prior Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For a Chapter 13, you should wait 2 years from the date of filing your prior Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

The short and quick answer is no, but with a quick explanation. Determining which bankruptcy filing your qualify for, how to protect your assets and preparing a proper petition do require a vast amount of skill and knowledge that is developed as a result of doing hundreds, preferably thousands, of bankruptcy filings to completion. If you are not aware of the landmines that exist in any given bankruptcy filing, you could end up losing assets you could otherwise protect and/or fail to receive a discharge of your debts.
