What is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a legal process that provides relief to individuals in serious financial trouble. In general, it allows a debtor to discharge some, if not all, of their debt, while retaining certain real and personal property.

We offer our clients assistance with the following forms of bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Also known as debt liquidation, Chapter 7 uses the proceeds from a sale of the debtor's nonexempt property (asset liquidation) to pay off creditors. Consumers are able to retain most of their essential property, including their home, furnishings and automobile.

Bankruptcy once carried a stigma, but is being increasingly viewed as providing an individual with a fresh financial start in the wake of unexpected and extreme financial troubles, including:

  • Job loss
  • Divorce
  • Illness
  • Death in the family

While bankruptcy may not be the best answer for everyone, it provides many with a desperately needed reprieve in these tough financial times. At Paul, Elkind, Branz & Kelton, Attorneys at Law we will guide you through the entire process beginning with the eligibility requirements for Chapter 7. We will make certain you fully understand the bankruptcy process and are aware of the effect that filing for bankruptcy will have on your home, car or businesses.
