Information About Filing for Bankruptcy
There is a lot of misinformation on the internet about the recent changes to bankruptcy laws. Many people mistakenly believe that they are no longer eligible for debt relief under the new bankruptcy laws. Others believe that they can no longer discharge their credit card debt. In reality, people with serious debt problems can still file for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. There are tighter restrictions concerning who is eligible to file for
Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but that does not mean that bankruptcy and debt relief are no longer viable options! Those whose incomes are less than the average Florida income are still able to file for Chapter 7 without additional difficulty; those whose incomes are higher must pass a means test or file for Chapter 13. A
Chapter 13 bankruptcy was created to give people the option of repaying their debts over an extended period of time. If you file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are allowed to keep you property and you are protected from creditors while your repayment is developed and carried out. If you need to stop foreclosure on your home or if you do not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, this may be the solution for you. The legal team at our firm is proud to be able to assist clients reach a brighter and healthier financial future, whether that is through Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or another form of debt relief.
