Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Q&A

October 19, 2009

Often filing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is seen as the final step in a personal financial crisis. While this thought is understandable, it’s more realistic to view a Chapter 7 bankruptcy as the beginning of financial freedom.

Benefits of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy

• Liens on your paycheck or bank account
• Foreclosure of your home
• Repossession of your vehicle

Attorney fees involved in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy

When considering the fees associated with attorney fees, the big picture must be taken into account. Mistakes on a Chapter 7 bankruptcy application can end up costing you money in the long run. Furthermore, representation by a skilled bankruptcy attorney can help you deal with unethical action from overzealous creditors who may harass you or refuse to remove liens on your paycheck or other assets.

Many bankruptcy attorneys are willing to work out a reasonable payment plan so you can file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy as soon as possible to avoid a lien on your paycheck or repossession of your vehicle.
