Why should you choose our Hinesville attorneys?

Chapter 7 or 13?

Not many people who have not been through bankruptcy before know that it is not just a blanket term for getting out of debt. Rather, there are multiple distinct forms of bankruptcy that can be used to eliminate or otherwise mitigate debt into something more manageable. For the average American who has fallen into bankruptcy as an individual, there are two types of bankruptcy to consider. As filing for bankruptcy incorrectly could worsen your situation, it is highly advised your only proceed with one bankruptcy filing or another with the assistance of a Hinesville bankruptcy attorney.

The two main categories of bankruptcy include:

  • Chapter 7: A total liquidation of all your debt at the cost of your nonexempt personal property. Chapter 7 may provide the most immediate debt relief but also requires an individual to pass a means test beforehand to see if they even qualify.
  • Chapter 13: Reduces the total sum of your debt and creates a staggered payment plan over the course of three to five years. May not cost the debtor any personal property due to willingness to repay some or most of their debt to creditors.

Bankruptcy Benefits for You

Bankruptcy is often depicted as a major and frightful life decision with nothing but negative consequences. While it is a critical process for your finances, it does not need to be intimidating and it is, more often than not, positive for the debtor in many ways. Most notably, filing for bankruptcy creates an automatic stay on your debts, which stops creditors from contacting you in any way about the money you owe them. For many people in a monetary crisis, an automatic stay affords them some time to breathe.
