While bankruptcy has a negative connotation associated with it, it actually is a very beneficial and real option for many people or businesses who are struggling financially. To build on this, an immediate benefit is that when you file for bankruptcy it immediately stops creditors from continuing their pursuit of collection. Federally, it is your right to file for bankruptcy if the circumstance presents itself.
There are three common types of bankruptcy within bankruptcy law: Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13. Chapter 7 is generally the easiest one of the three. It usually involves liquidating nonexempt assets to pay off debts, hence why it is also called “liquidation bankruptcy.” When situations are a bit more complicated when it comes to a reorganization of a person’s or company’s finances, then Chapter 11 bankruptcy is more suitable. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a good choice for individuals or companies who need are still earning a wage and can repay their debt over time. This “wage earner’s plan” as it is called, allows assets to be retained as debts are paid off over time.
Our Wellington bankruptcy attorneys are here for our clients who are struggling with debt to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The usual fit for this type of bankruptcy are people with few assets and unsecured debts. We focus on clients who want a fresh start in life.
Our Wellington bankruptcy attorneys focus on providing legal assistance for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This assistance comes with the help of reorganizing their bankruptcy. The ideal client for this is someone who is facing an immediate threat such as repossession of their vehicle or foreclosure on their home.
The main objective here is identifying and implementing a suitable plan of debt repayment so that the client can get a handle on their debt while not giving up their home or possessions.
- Needing to use your credit card for necessities: mortgage, food, gas, rent, utilities, etc.
- Substantially dipping into your savings account or retirement accounts to stay afloat

- Credit card interest rates increasing to amounts too high to keep up with
- Getting continuous court documents in the mail that include lawsuits and bills you can’t pay

Foreclosure is a scary thing, but sometimes it can be worth it. Our foreclosure attorneys will work with you to decide if it is the right decision to go ahead with foreclosure or not depending on your situation.
Many people owe more on their home than it is worth. If this is the case then it may be an opportunity to decide if it is worth holding onto it or not. We encourage our clients to take this time to look at your past financial decisions and choose which ones are worth it and which ones are not.
