We have both the legal expertise and the resources to help you get a fresh financial start.
What Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 7 bankruptcy has quite a few benefits. It allows you to:
- Discharge most of your debt
- Stop creditor harassment
- Achieve debt relief faster than other types of bankruptcy
In order to qualify for Chapter 7, you must pass the means test. This test takes your disposable income, and compares it to the average amount of disposable income people have in your state.
Your Bonita Springs FL bankruptcy attorney can help you determine whether you are eligible for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and whether this is a good option for your circumstances.
What Is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to reorganize your debts and repay them in a payment plan over a span of three to five years. Benefits to filing Chapter 13 include the following:
- Foreclosure defense and automatic stay protection
- Protection from creditor harassment
- Reasonable repayment plan
- Discharge of debt once the plan schedule expires
- Ability to cram down debt values for repayment
If you are considering filing bankruptcy, but aren’t certain whether Chapter 13 bankruptcy is right for you, speak to a Bonita Springs FL bankruptcy attorney at Ryan J. Really, Attorney at Law, PLLC. We can advise you of the benefits of filing Chapter 13, eligibility requirements, and the filing process.
Is Debt Negotiation a Viable Option?
With debt negotiation, you might be able to speak with your creditors to negotiate the amount owed, and then come up with a new repayment strategy. But there’s a catch.
Most debt negotiation services do not have your best interests in mind. Moreover, many of them won’t necessarily use smart, aggressive strategies to negotiate with creditors. Things to be aware of include the following:
- Some services are not legitimate. In 2006, the Federal Trade Commission charged five different fraudulent operations that actually led people into further debt
- Some organizations will guarantee a creditor’s agreement to negotiate. In reality, there is no way to guarantee that a creditor will accept the negotiation.
Because of this, it’s important to speak to an experienced Bonita Springs FL bankruptcy. We can advise you of your options and help you decide whether debt negotiation makes sense for your circumstances.
