Consumer Bankruptcy

From credit card debt to mounting medical bills, people face financial difficulties for many reasons. You can put an end to creditor harassment and get the debt relief you need by filing for bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Even though there has been recent law changes, it is still possible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and receive a complete forgiveness of your debt. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop a foreclosure process, wage garnishment and the disconnection of utilities.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: By entering the debt consolidation and repayment plan offered by Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can stop foreclosure and pay back what you can afford.

In regard to our bankruptcy practice, we can also assist clients from Monroe County, Michigan.
