Bankruptcy attorney Figueroa takes the time to assess your financial situation to see if you qualify for:
Chapter 7. It is the quickest way to “wipe the slate clean” and discharge unsecured debts such as credit card debt, medical bills, payday loans, and collection accounts. Chapter 7 is known as a liquidation bankruptcy in which a trustee may sell non-exempt assets and distribute the proceeds to your creditors. Fortunately, most people do not lose property in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy if they take advantage of state and federal exemptions.
Chapter 13. This bankruptcy allows you to organize your debt and come up with a plan to repay your creditors over a 3-5 year period. You can use Chapter 13 to keep valuable non-exempt property, stop foreclosure of your home or repossession of your vehicles, makeup missed mortgage or vehicle payments and stop interest from accruing on your tax debt.
