Bankruptcy Lawyer in Warson Woods MO
What kind of benefits will i receive when i file for bankruptcy?
- The most important benefit is the “fresh start / clean slate” you’ll get upon filing. It will give you a chance to greatly improve your credit score (over a relatively short period of time)!
- And all of the creditor activity that you’re currently dealing with (endless phone calls, threatening letters, demands for money) will come to end an immediate end
- Or if your creditors are currently garnishing your wages (or levying your bank accounts), that will stop as well
What kind of debts will be handled in my bankruptcy?
- Credit cards and medical bills
- Payday loans, personal loans, and signature loans
- Old utility bills (whether they be gas, electric, water, or cable), old cell phone bills (including early termination fees), old gym memberships, and overdrawn bank and/or credit union accounts
- Deficiencies that result from things like car repossessions, home foreclosures, and broken rental contracts
- And just about anything that resembles an unsecured debt
- A Ch7 is a discharge of unsecured debt (like credit cards and medical bills); a Ch13 is a repayment plan (which allows you to get caught up on certain debts, like overdue mortgage payments)
- A Ch7 will run about five (5) months in length from start to finish; a Ch13 will last between three (3) and five (5) years
- The Bankruptcy Trustee in a Ch7 is on the hunt for assets that have a lot of value (with the intention of selling those assets); the Trustee in a Ch13 doesn’t want to take anything from you (rather, he/she wants to try and make the monthly plan payment as high as possible)
