Even if you have been extremely careful with money and expenditures, the prospect of filing for bankruptcy may still loom. This is because of circumstances that more often than not, are out of our control - loss of a job, illness or death, divorce, etc. Deciding whether or not to file for bankruptcy is a very serious decision, and before making that decision, you should consult an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
Jackson, Jackson & Kurtz offers a dedicated and understanding view of this difficult situation. We can outline not only the drawbacks of bankruptcy (and there are drawbacks), but also the benefits that can come from filing for bankruptcy. For example, filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop wage garnishments on bank accounts and wages, and possibly even recoup some of what was garnished. Filing for bankruptcy can stop home foreclosures (temporarily), pestering phone calls from creditors, and it can often eliminate most if not all debts.
If you are at the point where Chapter 7 bankruptcy seems like it may be your only option, please don’t hesitate to call us, so that we can give you the very best advice and help you make the right decisions.
