Seek Financial Freedom

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

People often associate bankruptcy with shame and failure, but that's simply not the case. No matter how hard you work, financial hardship can still find you. If your debt is overpowering your current income, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy may be your ticket to a fresh start. We find that Chapter 7 is a great filing option for households with limited equity in their property and qualify under the federal exemptions. But, whether or not you qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in New Jersey depends on many factors. If you're considering filing for bankruptcy, it's important that you speak with an attorney before taking action. Call us today.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Everyone's financial portfolio is different, so it's crucial to understand the different pathways to relief before deciding which chapter to file under for bankruptcy. Our knowledgeable attorney can evaluate your current situation and advise if Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is a promising path for you. This filing option allows debtors to propose a timely repayment plan to the court. If approved, creditors cannot take legal action against you, foreclose your house, or repossess any vehicles. Reach out to our office in Essex County, New Jersey, and learn how we can help guide you while you plan for a brighter financial future.
