Many Americans wrongly view bankruptcy as a financial scar that will mark them as a failure for the rest of their life. Despite the stigma of being in debt, bankruptcy is a vital fallback in an unforgiving economy. In fact, our founding attorney, Jonathan P. Shultz, has filed bankruptcy himself and knows firsthand how life-changing and beneficial it can be if you can no longer afford to keep up with your debt.
There are several chapters under the Bankruptcy Code, but the two most common types of bankruptcy cases are Chapters 7 and 13. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often referred to as “straight bankruptcy” or “liquidation.” It primarily involves discharging or eliminating your unsecured debts. Chapter 13 bankruptcy involves restructuring your debts to consolidate them into a monthly payment plan for three to five years. After the repayment plan is completed, all remaining debts will be discharged.
We can help you make an informed decision about whether bankruptcy is the right option for you and which chapter you should file for. Call (303) 625-7995 today to speak to our legal team.
If you file for either Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the federal court will issue an order, called an automatic stay, which informs all of your creditors that they cannot continue repossessing your property and funds. Debt incurred from medical expenses also typically qualifies as unsecured debt and is dischargeable through bankruptcy.
Even if you don’t file bankruptcy, you still have rights if you are being sued by credit card companies or debt collectors. We proudly represent clients across Denver and Arapahoe County and will gladly help you explore all of your options.
If you fail to keep up with your debts, then creditors and government agencies can garnish your wages and force your employer to deduct funds from your paycheck until the entire debt is paid off. Past-due debt from credit card debt, medical bill debt, lease defaults, tax debt, and student loan debt can result in wage garnishment.
A mortgage company can seize your property if you are behind on your payments. The mortgage company can then hold onto your house until the lienholders eventually sell it off to pay the rest of the mortgage.
One of the most advantageous methods of stopping wage garnishment and foreclosure is filing for bankruptcy. All collection actions and foreclosure on your home must cease once the automatic stay is issued after filing for bankruptcy.
There are two main categories of student loans: Federal and private. Federal student loans are backed by the federal government and are highly regulated, while private student loans are issued by well-known banks, like Citigroup or Chase Bank. Private student loans usually have higher interest rates than federally backed loans.
If you are unsure of what type of loans you have, contact The Law Offices of Jonathan P. Shultz so we can assess your situation and determine if you are eligible to negotiate your debt with lenders.
