Although filing for bankruptcy is a major step, it doesn’t have to be stigmatizing. The truth is, bankruptcy information reveals that the U.S. Bankruptcy Code has been in place for well over 100 years, and is designed to help Americans gain a fresh start. In 1934, the Supreme Court wrote about the purpose of the bankruptcy law and of declaring bankruptcy: “It gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor…a new opportunity in life and a clear field for future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.”
There are two ways of declaring bankruptcy, and one common way that debt collectors violate the law. What bankruptcy information would you like?
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy – Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidates all of your non-exempt assets, discharges your non-exempt debts, and gives you a fresh start.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy – Chapter 13 is designed to give you the breathing room you need to reorganize your debt and pay it off over time.
Bankruptcy Stay Violations – Once you’ve filed for bankruptcy, debt collection efforts must stop. If a debt collection agency calls, writes, or takes legal action against you, it may constitute a stay violation.
