Stop Debt Collectors, Foreclosure & Repossessions
As bankruptcy attorneys, we are often able to temporarily or permanently
stop foreclosure actions. The
automatic stay associated with Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy will freeze foreclosures,
auto repossessions, and all other types of debt collections from creditors
until it is lifted. The time this allows can be invaluable as you attempt
to get your affairs in order.
At Owenby Law, P.A., we understand how intimidating and stressful bankruptcy
can be for our clients. Should you decide to retain our services, however,
we will be with you through every step of the bankruptcy process.
When you work with our firm, we can answer all of your questions, including:
- Is filing for bankruptcy the right choice for me?
- Which type of bankruptcy is right for me?
- Will I lose my house or car if I file for bankruptcy?
- How long does the bankruptcy process take?
- Will I be left with any debt when it’s over?
What is the Difference Between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13?
If you are interested in filing for bankruptcy as an individual, then you
have the option to file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code. While both provide similar outcomes, they are vastly different processes.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy requires you to liquidate certain non-exempt assets,
sell them, and then use the proceeds to repay your creditors. The benefit
is that your debts will be discharged in just a few short months.
On the other hand, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a lengthier process that can
take anywhere from three to five years. During Chapter 13, you will have
the chance to restructure your debts, create a monthly payment plan, and
repay your creditors in order of priority over the next couple of years.
At the end of this process, any remaining debts will be discharged. One
benefit is that it may be able to help you halt or prevent foreclosure.
