Filing For Bankruptcy in Country Club Hills MO
There are only really three main routes you can go when faced with overwhelming debt (credit cards, medical bills, payday loans, old utility bills, etc.): 1) pay off the debt; 2) work out some sort of settlement on your debts, then pay that portion off; 3) or file for bankruptcy.
ONLY $300 UPFRONT FEES FOR A COUNTRY CLUB HILLS MO CHAPTER 13
A St Louis bankruptcy comes in two forms: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. A St Louis Chapter 7 is a discharge of unsecured debts. This means that all of your pesky creditors will stop bothering you immediately upon filing (no more phone calls, no more threats of lawsuits, no more nasty letters, and no more harassing collection agencies).
A St Louis Chapter 13 is a repayment plan over the course of three to five years. During this period of time, certain debts will be paid back. This would include car loans (but with a much lower interest rate than most folks are currently dealing with), past due mortgage payments (this is especially helpful if you are at risk of a foreclosure), recent tax debt, back child support, and sometimes a portion of your unsecured debts. All of this is consolidated into a manageable monthly payment that you make to the Bankruptcy Trustee (who then disperses these funds to the various creditors listed in the plan).
