In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, we assist individuals in financial distress to start over with a clean slate. People without considerable assets, but who are buried in debt may find liquidation bankruptcy, or Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the best solution to their financial problems. Individuals with considerable assets to lose, or those who are behind on their mortgage or property taxes or whose homes are in foreclosure, may find a debt repayment plan as devised in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy more appropriate. A Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows a business (and an individual, in some cases) to remain in possession of their assets and to restructure and continue their operations, repaying their creditors over time. Whatever the situation, we take a personal approach with our clients, listen to their financial troubles and explore all angles options to arrive at the best solution. Each individual’s situation is unique, and sometimes we discover that filing bankruptcy is not the most viable answer. At times a non-bankruptcy alternative may be more suitable for some people.
