Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is more common and the stigma regarding it has started to fade. Bankruptcies can be caused by major negative financial events such as: the loss of a job, large medical bills and divorce. Our attorneys listen and ask you to explain your specific situation. If bankruptcy is not the right option for you, we explain your bankruptcy alternatives. If bankruptcy is the proper process for you, we explain the entire process.

Here are some common questions our clients ask:

  • Is bankruptcy right for us?
  • Can you stop foreclosure on our home?
  • Should we file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy?
  • How long will a bankruptcy remain on my credit report?
  • What do we need to do to file bankruptcy?

Typically bankruptcy is the correct option when your debts greatly exceed your income and assets. It is important that you seek the advice of one of our bankruptcy attorneys to see if you qualify and if bankruptcy is right for you. We can be reached at 317-770-0000. Regardless of whether filing bankruptcy is the correct option for you, we answer all of your questions about the bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy options.

If you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will get rid of most, if not all, of your debts. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy gives you a reasonable payment plan with your creditors over three to five years. Regardless of whether you file a chapter 7 or a chapter 13 bankruptcy, this process looks at the total amount of debts and liabilities and provide a method where the debtor will be able to keep a portion of their assets while relieving them of some or all of their debt. Some types of debts cannot be discharged.
