Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Are you receiving harassing letters and phone calls from creditors and
debt collectors? If you are fed up with these notices and are unable to
meet the payments that you owe, you may want to consider
Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Bankruptcy does not have to be a scary process, and an experienced Orange
County bankruptcy lawyer can help the process go smoothly for you and
your family. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy is also known as "liquidation"
or "straight bankruptcy". The ability of the debtor to pass
the means test is a key factor in being able to qualify for a Chapter
7 bankruptcy. Are you ineligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy? Then you
may be able to file
Chapter 13, where your debt will be restructured and consolidated to give you manageable
monthly payments. Even though your debt is not cleared, your scheduled
payment agreement might only last 3-5 years.
Benefits of Filing Bankruptcy
The top five benefits for filing either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy are:
The Automatic Stay: The largest benefit by far because it stops almost all types of creditor
collection attempts. Constant harassment is one of the largest drawbacks
to owing people money. Creditors can only contact you through your Orange
County bankruptcy attorney when the automatic stay is active.
Starting the Rebuilding Credit Phase: One of the largest fears for a major bankruptcy is that your credit will
take a serious hit. It will usually for a short period of time, but credit
is normally bad at the time of filing in most cases. Though the bankruptcy
can damage your score for a short period, the filing also clears the slate
for you to build a better score in its place.
Renewing Your Financial Slate: Bankruptcy clears you of all bad ties your choices have caused. Getting
a clean financial slate and leaving the baggage behind is a very easy
way to get your life back on track.
Stopping the Loss of Income: Your money does you no good if you don’t do anything with it in the
debt process. Bankruptcy allows you to regain the flow of income.
Stop Foreclosures and Repossessions: An automatic stay is one of the only ways to allow you some more time
to come up with a plan and stop foreclosure proceedings during your bankruptcy process.
