When it comes to bankruptcy, the two most common forms are Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7, the debtor is seeking to discharge all of his or her unsecured debts. These debts can include high interest credit cards, medical bills, signature loans, and more. The debtor can usually keep his or her Homestead and automobile in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but this matter would have to be discussed in detail with Mr. Weller or one of our attorneys. Debtors can also have the option to surrender a vehicle if they so choose, especially if the car does not have any positive equity. Another benefit of a Chapter 7 is that the entire process can be completed within 4 to 6 months, compared to a Chapter 13 which may span over a maximum of sixty (60) months. Not every family will be able to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. There are numerous factors to be considered, one main factor is the allowable income limit in comparison to the family size as determined by the Means Test.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a great option if you do not qualify for a Chapter 7. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the debtor is looking to come up with an affordable and reasonable monthly payment to help repay back creditors. This is why Chapter 13 is also called a “reorganization bankruptcy”, or even a “wage earner’s bankruptcy.” Another benefit of filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that it can be used to temporarily stop foreclosures on homes and the repossession of vehicles with what is known as an “automatic stay.” Depending on how long you have owned your car, we may even be able to lower the total amount owed on the vehicle.

If you are not looking to filing bankruptcy in Florida, we may go down the path of debt settlements instead. With a debt settlement, we will negotiate with your creditors on your behalf to come up with a reasonable one-time payment to settle your debts with them. Be aware that creditors are not obligated to come up with a settlement agreement, but in many cases, we have helped clients come up with settlement deals for much less than the total amount owed. In order for a settlement deal to be possible, you must have the funds readily available so that Weller Legal Group can start the debt settlement negotiations with your creditor or creditors.
