Depending on your financial circumstances, income, assets and other related issues, you may only qualify for Chapter 13 and not Chapter 7. Chapter 7 is reserved for people with few assets and little or no income. It discharges unsecured debt such as credit cards.

    On the other hand, with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, filers work out a restructured payment plan and then repay their debts over a three to five year period, sometimes at a discount, to a trustee.

  • How to stop wage garnishment

    In an effort to collect debts from you, some creditors may go to court to get a money judgment. This means the creditor sues you in court and wins the case or wins a default judgment which happens if you do not respond to the lawsuit.

  • The pros and cons of filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy

    Whether we face the reality of a financial crisis or not, sometimes there’s no easy way out. Events can conspire to overwhelm you, and in the end, the only option you may have left is to file bankruptcy.

  • Making It Through An Inheritance Dispute in Arlington

    Earnest was very close to his grandmother. While he was in high school, he used to spend many of his afternoons going over to her house and share tea and some stories with her.
