“It gives to the honest but unfortunate debtor…a new opportunity in life and a clear field for the future effort, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of pre-existing debt.”
—The U.S. Supreme Court in explaining the purpose of bankruptcy
When faced with a financial crisis, it is sometimes hard to know exactly what to do. If you are behind on payments, creditors are calling, or lawsuits have been threatened, filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code may be the a solution for you. Either chapter will stop all collections activity, and in most cases you can keep all of your property.
Rely on the bankruptcy attorneys of Atkinson, Simms & Kermode, leaders in the field of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 debtor representation.
