Many people today face financial hardships due to high credit card debt and bank loans. The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t helped the situation, as it’s affected many companies and individuals who could not earn income. Don’t worry; there is hope and filing for bankruptcy can be the solution.

If you are facing financial difficulties, filing bankruptcy can help with situations such as the following:

  • To no longer have to repay debts.
  • To stop lawsuits.
  • To stop the garnishment of your wages.
  • To prevent harassment at work and home.
  • To repair your finances or credit.

Many people think they'll be ruined financially by declaring bankruptcy. However, declaring bankruptcy gives people a clean slate without negative marks on their credit reports. Furthermore, if you file for personal bankruptcy correctly, you may even become eligible for new loans.

After all, creditors don't know if you're paying off your debts; they can only see the balance. Weird enough, people filing for bankruptcy often receive credit card offers from creditors soon after filing.

An Experienced Bankruptcy Court Attorney In Encino, CA

An Understanding Bankruptcy Lawyer In Encino, CA

Bankruptcy laws were designed to help individuals and families facing financial hardship by giving them time to repay debts. Unfortunately, these laws aren't helping many of those who need them most. The number of American citizens filing for bankruptcy has increased steadily since the recession began in 2007.

Understanding the different kinds of bankruptcy is essential before deciding which one to file. As an experienced bankruptcy court attorney, I can help you determine what type of bankruptcy is best for your situation.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

In a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you'll likely have to sell some of your belongings and apply that money towards paying back your creditors. This kind of bankruptcy is usually fast and straightforward. But, if you do not have enough money to cover your bills, you may have to file for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy instead.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Chapter 11 bankruptcy is filed when an individual or business cannot repay debts owed to creditors. When companies file for Chapter 11 protection, they typically do so because they have exhausted every possible avenue to avoid paying back their debtors. People often file for Chapter 11 protection after having failed to negotiate a settlement with their creditors.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is necessary when you have substantial debts and cannot afford to make payments. Filing Chapter 13 also helps if you are being sued or harassed by a creditor and they are unwilling to accept any settlement you have offered. I will help by negotiating with your bank, credit card companies, collectors, and landlords.
