Comprehensive Bankruptcy Services 

Working with a bankruptcy attorney can be highly beneficial when considering filing for bankruptcy or managing overwhelming debt. The legal team at Avery Law possesses extensive knowledge of bankruptcy laws and can help you understand your rights and options. They are ready to guide you through the complex legal process, helping to ensure all necessary documentation is correctly filed and deadlines are met. 

Moreover, working with a bankruptcy attorney like ours can help protect you against potential pitfalls and provide you with a comprehensive plan to regain control of your financial situation. Their experience can make the difference between a fresh start and a continued struggle with insurmountable debt.

Our services include:

  • Chapter 7 BankruptcyThis type of bankruptcy is also known as "liquidation" bankruptcy and can help you eliminate most of your unsecured debts, such as credit card debts and personal loans.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: This type of bankruptcy allows you to restructure your debts and create a repayment plan that fits your budget and financial situation.
  • Debt Relief Options: We can help you explore alternative debt relief options, such as debt consolidation and debt settlement.
  • Foreclosure Defense: If you're facing foreclosure, we can help you explore legal options to stop or delay the process and protect your home.

Understanding the Bankruptcy Process 

The bankruptcy process may seem complicated, but understanding it can alleviate some of your fear and uncertainty. It begins with you, the debtor, filing a petition with the bankruptcy court. This petition includes detailed information about your debts, income, assets, and a list of all your creditors. Upon filing, an automatic stay goes into effect, which temporarily prevents creditors from pursuing collection activities.

Next, a bankruptcy trustee is appointed to oversee your case. They will review your paperwork, potentially sell any non-exempt assets to pay off creditors, and hold a meeting of creditors (also called a 341 meeting). You must attend this meeting, where creditors may ask you questions about your financial situation and bankruptcy papers.

If you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and there are no objections, your dischargeable debts will be wiped out. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you'll submit a repayment plan for court approval, outlining how you plan to pay off your debts over a 3- to 5-year period.

Filing for bankruptcy may offer several critical protections:

  • Potential Asset Protection: Depending on your circumstances, when you file for bankruptcy, many of your assets may be protected by bankruptcy exemptions. These can include your home, vehicle, retirement accounts, household goods, and personal effects. 
  • Stay on Creditor Harassment: The automatic stay also puts an immediate halt to most forms of creditor harassment. This includes phone calls, letters, lawsuits, wage garnishments, and other debt collection attempts.
  • Prevention of Utility Disconnections: If you're behind on utility bills and facing disconnection, filing for bankruptcy will generally prevent the utility company from discontinuing service for at least 20 days.
  • Foreclosure Proceedings: If your home is in foreclosure, the automatic stay can temporarily stop the process, giving you time to catch up on missed payments or potentially modify your loan.
  • Eviction Delays: While bankruptcy will not ultimately stop an eviction, it can delay the process. However, this is a complex area of law, and you should consult with an attorney to understand your rights.
