What is bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal proceeding that offers those who cannot pay off their debts a fresh financial start. The right to file for bankruptcy is provided by Federal law and most bankruptcy cases are handled in Federal Court. Filing for bankruptcy will put a freeze on creditors' right to collect debts from you, lasting until your debt is sorted out according to law.

Please note that bankruptcy is not the cure to every financial problem. Nor is it the right step for every individual. Bankruptcy may appear on your credit report for seven to ten years, and may affect your ability to obtain credit in the future. However, if you're already behind on your bills, your current credit situation may not be able to get much worse.

Rocket Man, blast your debts away

Chapter 7

If your debts consist mostly of credit cards, medical bills, auto loan deficiencies, or other unsecured debts, a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing may be the appropriate road for you to set out on. At Greg Dunn, Bankruptcy and Debt Relief Attorney, our experienced bankruptcy lawyer will guide you each step of the way. Such debts can be wiped out entirely in most cases, in order to offer you a new beginning and a fresh start. This is called "discharge" in bankruptcy language.

A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy takes about four to six months from start (when you hire us) to finish ("discharge"). It does not wipe out most tax debts, student loans, child or spousal support obligations, or court fines and traffic tickets.

Chapter 13

Opting for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy filing is the route of reorganization. This may be appropriate for you if you are experiencing any of the following circumstances:

  • You wish to stop a foreclosure on your home and bring your mortgage payment current; or
  • You wish to reorganize your debts instead of seeking a complete discharge under Chapter 7; or
  • You have non-exempt assets which you would be required to surrender under Chapter 7; or
  • You have already filed a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy within the last eight years.
  • Student loans which are generally non-dischargeable in a Chapter 7.
