Bankruptcy is financially stressful, but there’s an emotional component that is draining. If you are not careful, the tension surrounding a bankruptcy can also cause deleterious stress-related health effects. You have likely gotten endless harassing phone calls and endured stressful, sleepless nights. We know you want to pay your creditors and bills, but you cannot find the funds. Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy could be your relief, but the process is not without its many complexities and consequences. Bankruptcy is suitable for anyone who has faced hardship and is unable to pay their debts. While Chapter 13 offers consumers the opportunity to restructure their debts into a simplified monthly payment, Chapter 7 wipes away all eligible debts, such as credit card balances and medical bills. Chapter 13 is available for businesses that have more debts than assets and seemingly no means to reverse that trend. Our Lyndhurst bankruptcy lawyers are standing by to guide you through petition selection and help you file today. From there, we assist with:
Chapter 7, 11, and 13 bankruptcy filings
Pre-bankruptcy credit counseling
Preparing your application
Collecting all necessary documentation, including tax returns, W2s, credit card statements, and more
Filing your application and seeing the entire case through
