Will Debt Settlement or Mortgage Modification Work in Your Case?
We may advise you that your situation does not warrant filing bankruptcy. For example, if you are struggling with one or two large debts, a better solution may be a negotiated debt settlement plan with the creditor. If you are struggling with threatened foreclosure, we may be able to work with you in obtaining a mortgage modification instead.
Bankruptcy, more than any other instrument, can provide an end to:
- Creditor harassment
- Wage garnishment
- Bank account levies
Consumer Rights · Debt Relief · Bankruptcy Law
GSJones Law Group, P.S., can help you fight illegal collection tactics by creditors. We also guide clients through all phases and processes of the types of bankruptcy that are right for them:
Chapter 7: Also known as “debt discharge” bankruptcy, using Chapter 7 may result in the elimination of all your consumer debts, including credit card debts and medical bills. You may choose to reaffirm your mortgage and car loan and keep your house and car. Most people who file Chapter 7 do not lose much or any of their personal property when it falls within the listed Chapter 7 exemptions.
Chapter 13: Also known as “debt reorganization” bankruptcy, Chapter 13 consolidates debt for repayment in one affordable monthly sum for three to five years. At the end of the repayment period, remaining debt will be discharged and the Chapter 13 bankruptcy will be completed.
Chapter 11: Businesses use this form of bankruptcy. However, small businesses may be able to resolve debt through Chapter 7. Talk to a lawyer about your situation.
Chapter 12: Farmers and fishermen heading for bankruptcy may use Chapter 12.
Many people hesitate for fear of ruining their credit records. In fact, your credit is most likely already at risk or soon will be if your debts overwhelm your ability to repay them. Through bankruptcy, thousands of debtors have successfully found a fresh start and re-established credit in a year or less.
