How Can Filing for Bankruptcy Help Me?

Secured debts, student loans, and child support are just a few debts which cannot be forgiven through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, the list of debts which can be forgiven through bankruptcy is much longer. Clients choose bankruptcy in order to find freedom from debts. Sometimes, bankruptcy is able to help you keep a home which is being foreclosed or allow you to keep other personal property.

We may recommend or you may be required to continue payments on certain debts, such as:

  • Current rent or utilities
  • Taxes
  • HOA fees
  • Secured property debts
  • Mortgage
  • Car loan
  • Spousal and child support
  • Student loans
  • Court fines
