Bankruptcy Lawyer in Hillsdale MO
What sort of advantages will i gain from filing for bankruptcy?
- Your credit score will improve dramatically as a result of filing! Within one year after the bankruptcy petition is filed, most people can expect to see their score rise by about 100 points.
- If you have been dealing with the ridiculous tactics of creditors (endless phone calls, tons of letters, and threats of legal action), that will all come to an end!
- This same idea would apply to things like wage garnishments and bank levies (which would also stop once your case is filed)
Can you give me an idea of the types of debts that will be taken care of?
- Credit cards and medical bills
- Payday loans (that are attached to your checking account), personal loans (from friends or family), and signature loans (especially the ones that originate online)
- Deficiencies from things like automobile repo’s, home foreclosures, and apartment rental contracts
- And little things like overdrawn bank accounts, old utility bills, old cell phone bills, old gym memberships, etc.
- A Chapter 7 is going to last about five (5) months in length (from start to finish); a Chapter 13 will run between three (3) and five (5) years
- A Ch7 is going to discharge all of your unsecured debt (like credit cards and medical bills); a Ch13 allows you a chance to get caught up on certain debts (like overdue mortgage payments and recent tax debt) in a repayment plan
- Assets with a great deal of equity might be taken in a Ch7; in Ch13, you don’t have to worry about losing anything
