Chapter 7 Vs. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
During your first visit, we walk you through all your debt relief options so you can choose what is best for your situation. The two most common forms of consumer bankruptcy are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy essentially eliminates many of your debts, and is the most common form of bankruptcy. However, you must fall below a certain income threshold to qualify, and without an experienced attorney you may lose some of your assets.
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy consolidates your debts into a repayment plan with terms you can actually afford, and you could have debt discharged if there is anything remaining at the end of the plan. Chapter 13 allows you to make more manageable payments on your debt, and allows you to keep all of your assets through the repayment program.

Put A Stop To Creditor Harassment
There are laws in place, in Missouri and across the country, to end the harassing tactics of creditors once you file for bankruptcy. Endless phone calls, wage garnishment, foreclosures – once you begin the bankruptcy process, an automatic stay goes into effect which requires creditors to stop any and all of these actions. This is the first major step to reducing your stress load and starting your new chapter.
