PHOENIX BANKRUPTCY LAWYERS
HELPING CLIENTS ACHIEVE FINANCIAL RECOVERY WITH DIGNITY
Contemplating bankruptcy can be scary, especially when you aren’t sure what to expect. It can seem as if the bankruptcy process is shrouded in mystery. Most people do hear much about bankruptcy aside from the occasional news report covering the bankruptcy filing of a large corporation or a celebrity filling for legal protection to reorganize their debt. So, what does it all mean, and how do you know if you’re headed for a similar fate? If your income is no longer keeping pace with your debts, bankruptcy may be an option you should consider. Large debts, like surprise medical expenses or missed mortgage payments, can send your financial health into a downward spiral.
In many instances, bankruptcy:
Provides consumers with reduced or total debt elimination
Offers protections to allow debtors to stay in their homes
Creates an avenue for paying creditors on better payment terms
If those benefits sound amazing, you should be aware they come with some very painful consequences. Bankruptcy will stay on your record for seven to ten years, depending on how you file. A bankruptcy on your record can mean fewer job options, difficulties seeking new credit, and other financial hardships. It’s important to review your options and meet with our Phoenix bankruptcy lawyers to ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed choice.
WHAT IS BANKRUPTCY?
Before choosing bankruptcy, it’s important to know what it entails. Bankruptcy is a process established by federal laws and provisions. When businesses and individuals have debts that they’re incapable of raising funds to cover, bankruptcy is used to provide debt relief and organization. Bankruptcy cases can be filed in any of the 94 federal judicial districts, and it’s important to remember that these cases cannot start in state court because federal courts have jurisdiction over bankruptcy cases.
Bankruptcy protections are available for individual consumers and business entities. The laws for both individuals and businesses can be found in chapters 7, 11, and 13 of the federal bankruptcy code. Bankruptcy law is written to provide debtors with a financial “do-over” by reorganizing, reducing, or relieving debt payments. The outcome of a bankruptcy filing will depend on how the case is filed. While some instances allow consumers to reorganize their debts, others may require payment via asset liquidation.
CONSUMER BANKRUPTCY: CHAPTER 7 & CHAPTER 13
Chapter 7 consumer bankruptcy protection allows debtors to discharge certain debts after asset liquidation managed by a court-appointed trustee. The court trustee will advise the liquidation of most nonexempt property. To qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a consumer must not have assets or income exceeding the regulated limit.
