You Have Options
When we help people with their debt or financial problems, we may do so in ways other than filing bankruptcy. For example, an older person past retirement who is drawing disability may get a letter threatening a lawsuit over medical bills. They may have avoided the problem and be anxious about it. Filing for bankruptcy can make the bills go away, but many times we can get a release from the client to call the hospital accounting department or talk to the attorney handling the case. We acknowledge the lack of response, but emphasize a lack of assets and the inability to pay. And creditors cannot take from disability payments.
Unfortunately, people sometimes avoid talking to their creditors. Or they simply tell a creditor's employee they cannot afford to pay, and that person is not interested in investing any more time into the matter. Very often, when we call the creditor to explain the situation and give them all the information, the creditor stops collection proceedings to save themselves time and money. They might ask for more information, verify it, and then agree to dismiss this case. So bankruptcy is not always the best route to take.
We find solutions to debt problems. Sometimes this comes down to educating creditors and talking with them or their counsel, or talking to student loan collection departments such as the 2240 program. There are also federal programs that help with mortgages.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
For people with debt problems, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy
provides tremendous relief. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is sometimes referred to as debt liquidation bankruptcy because it does not involve a repayment plan. So a Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows eligible debtors to eliminate most debts, including credit card debts, medical debts, and other unsecured debts.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
For those who do not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy because of high income, relief may be obtained through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy
. This rarely happens, however, because if one's income is high, one is not usually behind on bills.
Choosing a Chapter 13 filing helps you eliminate your debt without giving up your house or your car. You can choose a payment plan and take five years to get caught up while still keeping your collateral.
