Discover Lasting Debt Relief Today

When you’re in extreme debt, it can negatively impact your mental and emotional health, as well as your financial portfolio. From dealing with constant creditor harassment to worrying about foreclosure and other risks, debt invites a significant degree of stress and frustration into your life. Although many people mistakenly assume that bankruptcy is a “last resort,” up to 1 million Americans choose to file for individual bankruptcy each year, often because of rising healthcare costs and other unforeseeable burdens.

During your consultation, we can help you decide which form of bankruptcy is right for you:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: If you are eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be able to discharge most of your existing unsecured debts, which includes credit cards, personal loans, and other liens. Any assets and non-exempt property will be liquidated into cash in order to help cover these debts, but the rest will be effectively dismissed.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: If you don’t meet the eligibility requirements for Chapter 7, you may be able to file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead. Also called “reorganization bankruptcy,” this will allow you to keep your assets while following a court-ordered debt repayment plan over a period of time.

Compassionate Advocacy in Bankruptcy Matters

Regardless of whether you qualify for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, our compassionate legal team at The Halks Firm will strive to make your bankruptcy process as smooth as possible. As seasoned trial lawyers, we can effectively negotiate on your behalf, and fight for the debt-free future that you deserve.
