The 3 Steps of Bankruptcy
Every bankruptcy is different and specific to your individual circumstances. There are several universal elements to a bankruptcy filing.
First, you must formally file for bankruptcy with the appropriate local court. Our team can identify what type of bankruptcy you qualify for, what documents you will need, and where you should file them. As soon as you file, you will benefit from the automatic stay, a court order that prevents all collection actions. This means that bankruptcy can be used to stop collection lawsuits, repossession, foreclosure, and creditor harassment.
Second, you will complete the bankruptcy process with the proper advice from your attorney. The specifics of the process depend on the type of bankruptcy you file for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves discharging unsecured debt, while Chapter 11 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy focus on reorganization. Our lawyers will work with and advocate for you at each step of the way.
Third and finally, you will have the opportunity to discharge unsecured debts. This means you will generally be able to discharge credit card debt, medical bills, personal loans, and more. We will help strategize on how best to leverage dischargement and position yourself to address any obligations that cannot be generally discharged.
