Most people suffering from serious financial problems are facing the possibility of bankruptcy for the first time. They may have heard there are options, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, but they don’t understand the differences or how to decide what to do.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: “Liquidation”

Are you living paycheck to paycheck? Do you think it will be impossible for you to ever get caught up with your debts?

If your income is below the median annual income for Michigan ($68,000 for a family of four), Chapter 7 may be your best option. Sometimes referred to as “liquidation” or “consumer” bankruptcy, Chapter 7 typically takes three to six months to complete. The main advantage of Chapter 7 is that it enables people to “liquidate” or erase their debts..

Once you retain our office, you will be able to refer your creditors to us. The creditor harassment will stop immediately. Under some circumstances, this creditor harassment may be in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and you may have cause for further action.

Stop Garnishments

Are you currently experiencing garnishment of your wages? Have you been notified that garnishment may soon begin on your wages? A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one of the most effective ways to stop garnishments.

If you own property, it may be taken and sold by the bankruptcy court to pay down your debts. Some people see losing their homes as a major disadvantage of Chapter 7. Reviewing your goals and assets is a big part of the process so that we can assist you in taking the right path for you. However, for those who can no longer afford their mortgages, this may be the best option available.
