What are some benefits of filing a breckenridge hills mo bankruptcy?

What are some typical debts that a bankruptcy would take care of?
- The most common types of debts would be credit cards, medical bills, and payday loans
- But also things like signature loans and personal loans
- Old utility bills, old tax debt, old cell phone bills, and overdrawn bank accounts
- Deficiencies from repossessed vehicles, foreclosed homes, and rental property
- And any other debt that could be classified as unsecured
- The biggest difference would be the amount of time each chapter takes: a Chapter 13 lasts between three and five years; a Ch7 lasts about four or five months
- A Ch13 is described as a repayment plan during which certain debts are paid back (spread out over several years), such as car notes overdue mortgage payments, recent tax debt, and back child support; a Ch7 is simply a discharge of unsecured debt
- In a Chapter 13, any student loan debt would be rolled up into the repayment plan; in a Ch7, the student loan companies can continue to collect from you like they always have in the past
