Bankruptcy Can Provide a Fresh Start

Filing for bankruptcy before you get married can relieve you of your worries and your stress as you embark on this new part of your life. When you hire our firm, we can help you understand your debt relief options and work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs. We handle all aspects of personal bankruptcy, including:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy : This form of bankruptcy can help you discharge your credit card debts, medical bills and other unsecured loans. It can allow you to surrender a car or house if you can no longer afford the payments. We can work with you to determine if you qualify for Chapter 7 and advise you about what debts can be discharged.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy : This form of bankruptcy allows you to develop payment plan to get your finances under control and manageable into the future.
  • Dealing with your creditors : When you file for bankruptcy, your creditors can no longer call, e-mail or otherwise harass you. We can deal with your creditors and help you file for bankruptcy.
  • Rebuilding your credit: Bankruptcy can help you get your payments under control again. With each payment made on time, as well as stable residence and employment, your credit will begin rebuilding.

If you are already married and considering filing for divorce, we can help you understand your joint debt and bankruptcy options. The timing or your bankruptcy and your marital settlement agreement, also known as a divorce decree, can play a vital role in your debt relief. We will work to develop a debt relief strategy that meets your needs.
