Bankruptcy exists because Congress realized there must be a way for people to free themselves of burdensome and crippling debt. Without a way for people to legally discharge debt, people tend to lose hope and become unproductive. That is why you have the right, under Federal Law, to get a fresh start and eliminate most debts by filing a bankruptcy. The filing of a bankruptcy immediately stops creditors from collecting and protects you and your assets. No more collection calls, no more lawsuits, no repossessions and no foreclosures. Generally, there are two types of bankruptcy available to most individuals - Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
Chapter 7 & Chapter 13
Chapter 7Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common form of bankruptcy. In Chapter 7, the Debtor lists all of their assets and liabilities. In addition, the Debtor fills out a budget and fills out a form called the Statement of Financial Affairs. The entire process, from filing the petition to case closure, takes approximately 90 days in most cases. There is one hearing you must attend. In a Chapter 7, you are allowed to protect your assets and discharge most, if not all of your debt. Contact Levin and Levine LLP for a free confidential consultation to get the facts on what assets are protected and what assets are not protected. A consultation will also help you determine if any of your debt will survive the bankruptcy. Each person's bankruptcy is specific to his/her particular situation. Therefore, consult an attorney to fully understand whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy is right for you.
