Chapter 7 & Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Services
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is one of the more common forms of bankruptcy and exists as a way to hit the reset button on your debts. When you are given Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all of your debts are settled through the liquidation of your assets. Those assets are then sold off to repay your debts. After the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process is completed, you will no longer be in debt and will have the opportunity to start over. Bankruptcy has been painted as a life ruiner when in many ways it can be a lifesaver. You just need the proper guidance. The kind of expert guidance that you can find at the Law Offices of Blake Goodman PC.
If you qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, then you can repay all your debts over an agreed-upon period of time. Your debt will be consolidated into a lump sum and you will then be able to continuously pay off that lump sum in monthly payments. Individual debtors who have a regular income (including those engaged in business) and who qualify via a financial means test can file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to restructure or reorganize debt. Many people who file Chapter 13 can save their homes and vehicles, and can sometimes even work in burdensome student loan payments into the plan.
While filing for bankruptcy might seem like a difficult venture, we are here to provide expert guidance. Our legal professionals at the Law Offices of Blake Goodman are more than just bankruptcy experts, we are also financial experts. We can help you understand the best way to approach making these lump-sum payments and give you reliable bankruptcy guidance throughout the entire process.
Debt Settlement Program
At our office, you have options. In addition to bankruptcy, we can explore alternative paths to securing financial freedom. Our Debt Reduction or Debt Settlement Program (as we call it) reduces your unsecured debt burden through direct negotiation with your creditors. With this program, your creditors are offered a settlement deal in order to satisfy the balance of your credit cards, signature loans, hospital bills, and other financial obligations.
Although bankruptcy is often your most workable option to eliminate back tax problems, it is not always the best choice. That is why we also offer other solutions, such as tax resolutions, to deal with the IRS and State so you can avoid filing for bankruptcy. Get in touch with our firm to begin taking your life back from creditors. There’s no need to suffer the unknown – tell us what’s troubling you financially, and we can work to fix it.
