Bankruptcy Lawyer in St. Ann MO
What kind of benefits can i expect from a bankruptcy?
- Without a doubt, the greatest benefit you derive from a bankruptcy filing is the “fresh start / clean slate” that you will receive! This will allow you to turn your life around, and get back on your financial feet!!
- And once your case is filed, you will never again have to deal with all those nasty creditors (no more phone calls, no more letters, no more aggressive tactics to pull money out of you)
- But if one of your creditors has received a judgment against you, and is currently executing on that court order, this activity will come to an end as well (no more wage garnishments, no more bank levies)
What are some typical debts that would be included in my bankruptcy?
- Credit cards and medical bills
- Payday loans, personal loans, and signature loans
- Old utility bills (water, electric, gas, or cable)
- Old gym memberships, old book clubs, overdrawn bank accounts
- Deficiencies that result from a car repossession, home foreclosure, or broken rental contract
- And really anything that could be thought of as an unsecured debt
- A Chapter 7 will last about five months in length; a Chapter 13 is going to run between three and five years
- A Ch7 is a simple discharge of unsecured debts (like credit cards and medical bills); a Ch13 is a repayment plan during which certain debts are paid back (like overdue mortgage payments so that you can avoid a foreclosure)
- The Bankruptcy Trustee in a Ch7 is looking for any assets that might have a lot of value; in a Ch13, the Trustee is trying to make you monthly payment as high as possible
