Bankruptcy Attorney in Springfield
At the Piatchek Law Firm, our knowledgeable attorneys can provide you with the expertise needed to successfully navigate the process of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Typically these cases can be resolved within a few months, and with the right help, they can leave you in far better financial standing.
When you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy (also known as “personal” bankruptcy), the court will appoint a trustee to oversee the case. The trustee stands between the court and your property, and a reliable attorney will help you determine what property is exempt from repossession while you negotiate the terms of your repayment. Unsecured debts (such as outstanding credit card bills) will be wiped away after bankruptcy. However, other debts (like child support, alimony, student loans, and income taxes less than three years old) will remain.
For a more in-depth look at what Chapter 7 bankruptcy entails and to learn whether it fits your financial situation, contact the Piatchek Law Firm for a free consultation. We can help you make a fresh start with your finances. Plus, we offer free consultations and flexible payment plans, and we can typically charge one flat fee to cover your entire bankruptcy case.
