We help clients file:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Chapter 7 discharges all of your unsecured debt, including credit cards, medical bills, signature loans, etc. On average clients who choose Chapter 7 are debt free and enjoying financial freedom in just three to four months.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a debt reorganization plan. When you file Chapter 13, you are able to preserve many of your assets, and may stop the foreclosure process on your home. Under the plan, your debts will be consolidated and you will pay a manageable sum to your creditors for three to five years. After you complete the plan, any remaining unpaid debt will be discharged.
