How Can Filing For Chapter 7 Protect My Property?

When you file a bankruptcy petition, you will be protected by an automatic stay. The automatic stay provides temporary protection from most creditors - this will typically stop wage garnishments, pause any pending lawsuits, stop the foreclosure of your home, and more. The case will move forward while this automatic stay is still in effect, allowing our firm to find a suitable resolution for your case.

Many different types of unsecured debt can be charged in Chapter 7, including:

  • Certain personal loans
  • Medical bills
  • Credit card debt
  • Unsecured business debt
  • Lawsuit expenses
  • Lease and contract expenses
