Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can result in your debt being immediately negated with no need to ever pay it off. In other words, you will get a fresh start. While a Chapter 7 will eliminate most of your debt, there are certain types of debt which cannot be eliminated by filing bankruptcy. We will discuss these details further during your initial consultation.
Some people are afraid that a bankruptcy will ruin their credit history. While it is true that filing a bankruptcy will typically have a negative impact your credit rating, for many people, declaring bankruptcy can actually raise the credit rating because the negative value of a bankruptcy is less than that of the high debt. In addition, there are many creditors that specifically offer credit to individuals who recently filed for bankruptcy, since recent filers have a “clean slate” and are therefore better able to pay future debts.
Bankruptcy may or may not be the best option for you. If you are being harassed by creditors, threatened with foreclosure, or just need help with your financial situation, please contact The Chivis Law Firm. We can help you navigate through your options and create a timely and effective solution tailored to your particular situation.
