Bankruptcy Lawyer in Rock Hill MO
Can you identify some specific advantages to filing for bankruptcy?
- The first thing that you’ll notice after filing for bankruptcy is that all of the creditor activity that you’ve been putting up with (like endless phone calls and harassing letters) will come to an immediate end!!
- Or if you have already been sued, and the creditor is garnishing your wages or levying your bank accounts, that will stop as well!
- But by far, the most significant value in a bankruptcy is that it will allow you the perfect opportunity to rebuild your credit score (in a relatively short period of time)!
Are there some typical debts that would be included in my bankruptcy?
- Credit cards and medical bills
- Payday loans, signature loans, and personal loans
- Old utility bills (such as electric, gas, water, and cable); overdrawn bank accounts; old gym memberships; old cell phone bills; etc
- Any deficiencies that might arise from a past car repossession, home foreclosure, or broken rental contract
- And just about anything else that takes on an unsecured nature
- A Chapter 7 will 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 a simple discharge of your unsecured debts (like credit cards and medical bills); a Chapter 13 is described as a repayment plan (during which certain debts are paid back)
- In a Ch7 you could potentially lose an asset with a lot of value; in a Ch13 you don’t have to worry about losing anything, but assets with a lot of value could have an impact on how high your monthly payment will end up being
