Despite What You Have Heard, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is Still an Option
In 2005, the U.S. bankruptcy laws were significantly revised. In spite of the substantial changes, Chapter 7 is still a viable option for most people. To qualify for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7, you must meet certain income and expense thresholds. In the vast majority of cases, individuals still qualify for a Chapter 7 filing. For those who do not qualify for Chapter 7, filing of a Chapter 13 is often an attractive option.
A Chance to Start Over Through a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Filing
At Yellin & Hyman, P.C., we want you to know that there are options. While your circumstances may seem dire now, you can start anew by seeking bankruptcy protection. Chapter 7, also known as "liquidation" bankruptcy, allows you to discharge most or all of your unsecured debt (such as credit cards, medical bills, past due utility charges) freeing you from the burden of debt collection and harassment.
Common misconceptions about the process cause many people to hesitate when considering a bankruptcy filing. It is important to us that we educate our clients, letting them know how the system really works. For example, avoiding a bankruptcy filing because you are worried about damage to your credit rating is most likely a false concern. If you have been late making payments or have debts that have gone to collection, your credit rating has already been damaged. Chapter 7 could actually result in a better credit score, since it wipes the slate clean.
