Bankruptcy Lawyer in Richmond Heights MO
What benefits can i expect when i file for bankruptcy?
- The main benefit is the “fresh start / clean slate” you’ll receive upon filing your petition. This is the mechanism by which you’ll be able to rebuild your credit rating (in a very short period of time).
- And if you are currently trying to avoid all of your creditors (because they are calling you off the hook, and sending you a string of threatening letters), all of this will come to an end once your case is filed.
- But if you are also dealing with things like a wage garnishment, bank levy, or pending lawsuit, this will all stop too!!!
Are there certain debts that would be included in my bankruptcy?
- Credit cards and medical bills
- Payday loans, signature loans, and personal loans
- Old utility bills, overdrawn bank accounts, gym memberships
- Deficiencies from things like car repo’s, home foreclosures, and broken rental agreements
- Etc, etc, etc
- A Ch7 will last about five months (from start to finish); a Ch13 will run between three and five years in length
- A Ch7 is a simple discharge of unsecured debt; a Ch13 is a repayment plan
- In a Ch7, you could potentially lose an asset that has a lot of value; in a Ch13, you don’t have to worry about losing anything (but it could affect your monthly plan payment)
