Columbus Lawyers Helping With Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 is the most common type of bankruptcy filing, and for good reason. It is an extremely flexible and powerful way for indebted consumers and small-business owners to eliminate their most troublesome debts.
Because Chapter 7 involves liquidating assets as a means of resolving debtor claims, however, many people worry unnecessarily that they must surrender their most important assets to creditors.
Skilled Guidance For Debt Liquidation
In most cases, Chapter 7 bankruptcy clients of Guerrieri, Cox & Associates, LLC., in Columbus, Ohio, are able to keep most or all of their assets and property. In so doing, they are also able to permanently eliminate these and other debts within a few months of filing with the bankruptcy court:
- Credit card debts
- Medical debts
- Certain tax debts
- Student loans (in certain circumstances)
- Mortgage debts
- Car loans
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can also stop harassing creditor calls, halt collections lawsuits, end wage garnishments, prevent utility shut-offs, and postpone or prevent foreclosures and evictions.
Exploring Your Debt Relief Options
In order to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must meet certain income criteria. Also, certain assets are exempt from liquidation, but others are not. Meet with our experienced attorneys, and we can discuss these issues and help you determine whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy or another form of debt management is most appropriate for your situation.
Can I Really Keep My House?
Absolutely. Chapter 7 bankruptcy exemptions include cars and even houses (with no unprotected equity) as long as the debtor continues to maintain his or her current payments. The debtor may be required to sign a “reaffirmation agreement” affirming that these payments will be made on time in the future.
