Fighting to Help Our Clients Defeat Debt Through Bankruptcy

No one wants to be stuck in a cycle of overwhelming debt. Our team at Avery Law realizes it can be frightening, stressful, and embarrassing to deal with and attempt to address a personal debt crisis. That is why we focus on compassionate, individualized care that has helped thousands of our clients defeat their debts and find a fresh financial start. We are prepared to assist you in numerous types of financial crises, from dealing with creditor harassment to helping you manage student loan or credit card debt. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience to assist in finding a legal solution to your problem and get you on the road to financial freedom.

Our Coeur D’Alene bankruptcy lawyers can assist you with the following types of bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy – can liquidate assets to help discharge unsecured debts, ideal for low-income consumers . This type of bankruptcy can also shut down a business operation.
  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy – used by businesses and business owners to continue to operate through a financial organization
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy – can reorganize your debts into more manageable payments consistent with your current disposable income, ideal for high-income individuals

We also offer legal assistance in other areas of debt and financial relief. Our lawyers can help you with creditor harassment, credit disputes and errors, Fair Credit Reporting Act issues, foreclosure defense, pre-bankruptcy asset protection/wealth preservation, and tax debt relief. We strive to be able to assist you in all areas of debt and financial relief!

What Debt Can I Discharge?

You may have heard that going through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy as an individual entitles you to discharge debts. While this is true, so long as you keep to the terms of your bankruptcy – in Chapter 7, that means liquidating assets, while in Chapter 13 it means keeping to your court-approved payment plan – but, typically, only unsecured debts can be discharged. Unsecured debt refers to things like credit card bills, medical bills, and business debts.

However, there are some types of debts that cannot be discharged through bankruptcy, including:

  • Student loans
  • Most Tax debt
  • Unpaid child support and alimony
  • Penalties or fines incurred for breaking the law, including drunk driving
  • Most debts owed to County Indigent Services

If the majority of your debt falls into one of the above categories, filing for bankruptcy might not be the right choice for your situation. In such circumstances, we are still able to evaluate your situation and find possible solutions for relieving your debts.

How Will Bankruptcy Affect My Credit?
