Is Bankruptcy Right for Me?

Are you behind on your house payments? Are you unable to pay back taxes? Have you reached your credit limit and are struggling to pay the monthly credit card statements? If you are stuck in any of these situations, you may be wondering, "Is bankruptcy right for me?"

Bankruptcy may be the only option to dig yourself out of debt. There are several factors to take into account when considering bankruptcy. An experienced lawyer can meet with you and discuss your situation in order to help you determine your options. Contact our White Plains attorney at (914) 686-0634 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Is Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Right for Me?

If you are in debt and have no surplus income after paying your monthly bills such as rent, utilities, and food, you may want to consider filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The value of all your current assets, the amount of your spouse's income and your goal for financial security in the future are just a few of the things you need to look at when making such a decision.

In determining whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the right option for you, we will review your debts and assets and talk about how you got into financial trouble. We will discuss and review all of your options and alternatives before determining whether Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the best approach.

Is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Right for Me?

Compared to Chapter 7, there are many more things you need to take into consideration when deciding if Chapter 13 is an appropriate solution. Chapter 13 allows you to keep your major assets while having most of your unsecured debts discharged by paying your creditors a small percentage of what you owe through a court-approved payment plan.

This requires a sound analysis not only of your current assets, income and debt, but also of your future income and personal plans to assure fulfillment of your payment plan and financial objectives. We will provide honest and forthright guidance to determine if Chapter 13 is the appropriate debt relief option for your situation.
