Sound Advice About Bankruptcy Filing Decisions

Even for people who stand to benefit from Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, right now might not be the best time for filing. Filing for bankruptcy is a personal decision but many factors need to b e examined before deciding to file.

Because you only can get one Chapter 7 discharge every eight years, you need to think carefully about filing for bankruptcy. Our attorneys can review your bills and sources of greatest financial pressure, and consider your options with you. These might include:

  • Credit counseling, especially if your debt pressures aren’t expected to continue for a long time
  • Debt consolidation, which is seldom a good idea for anyone
  • Negotiated settlement with creditors
  • Short sale or mortgage modification if you’re threatened with foreclosure
  • Reverse mortgage for older people who still have equity in their homes
  • Troubled loan workouts for business debts or guaranties
  • Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy

Another alternative to consider is a reverse contingency debt negotiation. We can work with each of your major creditors to see if we can’t work out lower payments on reduced principal. Instead of paying us a flat fee or by the hour, we charge a percentage of the amount you save by compromising your debts.

If job loss, garnishment, asset seizures, tax collections, mortgage foreclosure or lawsuits represent a serious threat to your ability to maintain your household, bankruptcy might be your best option.

Filing for bankruptcy puts an immediate stop to most debt collection and gives you a chance to walk away from substantial indebtedness. To learn whether bankruptcy might be the right move for you right now, contact Wantland Law in Shepherdsville for a free consultation.
