Most of what is publicly known about bankruptcy has been reduced down to the basics, and some of it is no more than misunderstood myth. If you are contemplating bankruptcy as a way to ease yourself out of the debt in which you have found yourself, Adams Law Group can be of assistance. As a debt relief agency that has been designated by the United States Congress, we have been successful in our attempts to solve thousands of debt problems for individuals who are struggling.
How we Can Help
At Adams Law Group, we focus on bankruptcy and all of the intricate details that go along with the process. Whether you are contemplating bankruptcy, or you're in the thick of the process already, our services can be accessed for assistance. We also make ourselves available to individuals who need post-bankruptcy assistance. Our areas of practice include:
Commonly referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, Chapter 7 allows debtors to eliminate almost all of their unsecured debts. Under most circumstances, people who file for Chapter 7 are still permitted to keep their property, and will still benefit from the relinquishment of their debts. In total, the process takes approximately four months.
This type of bankruptcy is also called reorganization bankruptcy because it allows debtors to reorganize their debts in a way that is manageable to pay over an extended period of time. Typically, individuals who file for Chapter 13 have up to 60 months to pay off a portion of the debts they owe. Through Chapter 13, many debtors have been able to keep their property and stop the lawsuits against them.
After Filing for Chapter 13
How you handle yourself and your finances after filing for Chapter 13 needs to be acted out carefully. You will be expected to make timely payments that reflect the terms and conditions of your reorganization. The questions you have about tax refunds, extended warranties, and insurance payments should be directed to an attorney at our firm as soon as possible.
Bankruptcy can be one of the most effective ways to avoid foreclosure on your home. When you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, an automatic stay will be placed on your debt, which means foreclosures and everything else related to your debt must be put on hold. Most individuals that file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy effectively avoid foreclosure on their homes altogether.
Not all indebted individuals will qualify for bankruptcy. For people who are facing debt but do not wish to declare themselves bankrupt, alternatives can be enacted instead. Debt negotiations and settlements are other effective ways to enable a debtor to pay smaller amounts of money over a longer period of time.
