Have you been sued by your creditors?

When you file bankruptcy, you are protected by the automatic stay. The automatic stay is the federal law which requires your creditors to leave you alone and stop all collection efforts. This means that once your case is filed, your creditors can no longer call you, send collection letters or file a lawsuit to collect a debt. The automatic stay also stops lawsuits that have already been filed.

Can you afford to hire a bankruptcy lawyer?

Hiring a bankruptcy lawyer is not as expensive as you may think.  A chapter 13 bankruptcy (when you pay your debt back over time) can be filed in some case for no money down.  The attorney fee in a chapter 13 can be added to the plan payments and paid over time.  In a chapter 7 the attorney fees do have to be paid up front but we allow our clients to make payment plans that fit your budget.

Do You Need To Stop Garnishments?

Filing a bankruptcy will stop your garnishment.  The automatic stay stops all collection activities including garnishments.  In fact, when we help you stop a garnishment we can even get back money that was taken from you in many cases.  We will contact the court, your employer, and the creditor who is garnishing you to insure we can get the garnishment stopped as soon as possible.

Do You Need To Stop Foreclosures?

Filing a bankruptcy will stop a foreclosure.  A chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to protect your home from foreclosure while curing your mortgage arrears.  The automatic stay stops the foreclosure while the chapter 13 plan allows your to maintain house payments and cure your mortgage arrears over time.
