Chapter 7 filing
If you decide that bankruptcy is the best option, it is likely you will choose Chapter 7 bankruptcy. While you must meet income and expense requirements to qualify, it will immediately stop those harassing creditor calls and any court filings against you. And, after about 3 months, you can start your new financial life with discharged debts.
If you are fighting medical debt that is yours or your family’s, Chapter 7 can eliminate this as well. And, you are not alone. It is the leading cause of debt in the United States.
Chapter 7 is not perfect
Unfortunately, Chapter 7 bankruptcy is not perfect. First, student loans are exceedingly hard to discharge until you are disabled. Recent income tax debts and child support also cannot be discharged. And, if you have a high income or a lot of assets, you may not qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Either way though, at the law firm of Jeffrey M. Rosenblum, P.C., it is our job is to find you a solution. We are here to help.
