How Can The Lawyers At Robert J. Adams & Associates Help You Understand The Bankruptcy Laws?

There are various types of Bankruptcy available to you:

You are best served when you get advice on Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13.

Chapter 7

You file Chapter 7 to get a discharge of debts and save the property you want to keep. You can reaffirm your car loan and/or mortgage.

Chapter 7 has limits. Some debts can’t be discharged. One may have assets over and above exemptions. You may be behind on a car not or a mortgage. For some “high earners” there is the Means Test. Or, you may have had a Chapter 7 within the last 8 years. Sometimes Chapter 13 is a better option.

The lawyers at Robert J. Adams & Associates will give you answers you need and offer the best option available for you.

Chapter 13

Chapter 13 is a repayment plan. It can effectively deal with your debts when Chapter 7 is not possible or is not you in your best interest.

When is Chapter 13 the better option?

  1. You can’t catch up a car payment. And, you need your car;
  2. You are behind on your mortgage. And, you want to keep your house. Chapter 13 is available even if there is a foreclosure.
  3. Parking tickets, red light tickets and tollway debts can’t be wiped in Chapter 7. They can be discharged in Chapter 13.
  4. You owe Real Tax taxes. The taxes can be paid over time. This is true even if the taxes have been sold and the date of Redemption is coming up;
  5. Some but not all IRS debts can be wiped out in Chapter 7. Chapter 13 lets you pay the IRS over time;
  6. Some individuals have income far excess of the Means Test threshold. We have helped clients still pay a small dividend in Chapter 13;
  7. The timing of a prior Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 doesn’t allow Chapter 7 now. Chapter 13 is still available and usually with very small payments; and,
  8. There are other times when a Chapter 13 is a better fit for you.

Most of our clients pay a small dividend to unsecured debts. We work hard so our clients pay a Chapter 13 payment that fits their budget. We are on your side: not the creditors.
