Filing For Bankruptcy in Rock Hill MO


Have your debts been turned over to a collect agency?  If so, have they been calling your phone off the hook?  Or sending you endless letters demanding money you don’t have?  Perhaps you are being sued for breach of contract on a debt that you owe?  Or has a judgment already been rendered in favor of the creditor, and now they are garnishing your wages (or levying your bank accounts)?


If this is the type of situation you are currently dealing with, then it is a good time to start thinking about a St Louis bankruptcy!!  There are two main chapters one may file:  Chapter 7, and Chapter 13.

There are a lot of similarities between the two chapters, but as with everything in life, it is the differences that matter most.

For example, a St Louis Chapter 13 is a repayment plan (over the course of three to five years) during which certain debts are paid back.  These debts would include:  overdue mortgage payments (so as to prevent a foreclosure);  car loans (but using a much lower rate of interest than most people are currently under);  recent tax debt (because there is a chance we might be able to get older tax obligations discharged);  and back child support (so that the local prosecutor does not bring charges against you for non-support).

This is to be contrasted with a Ch7, which is described as a discharge of your unsecured debts (such as credit cards, medical bills, payday loans, etc.).  And if you have assets (such as motor vehicles and real estate), you may keep these items, so long as there is not a great deal of equity.
