Bankruptcy is a practical tool that financially benefits individuals and restores their rights. It is the goal of our Huntsville bankruptcy and credit lawyer to help you successfully navigate and understand the process.

When to File for Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy can be employed for many reasons. Common ones include: to keep a home, to stop credit harassment, and to assuage credit card debt. A bankruptcy attorney may also use bankruptcy to protect a car from repossession or navigate the financial proceedings around a divorce.

Finding the Best Option

There are several types of bankruptcy. Chapter 7, or liquidation bankruptcy, helps with unsecured debt such as personal loans and credit cards. Chapter 13, or reorganization bankruptcy, sets up a monthly repayment plan for debts.

There are other chapters of bankruptcy, which may be available if certain financial benchmarks are reached. A committed bankruptcy attorney can guide their client through this process and find the best option for both short- and long-term debt.

The Bankruptcy Process

It’s often a very complicated process to file bankruptcy, which is why securing an experienced and thoughtful bankruptcy attorney is the first step to stopping financial hemorrhaging. The Law Offices of Joseph G. Pleva has years of experience as local Huntsville bankruptcy and credit lawyers and will handle the paperwork and develop a plan to liquidate debt.

Throughout the entire process, the bankruptcy attorney protects the client’s property, negotiates with creditors, and keeps the client informed of any progress made. Clients will also benefit from receiving credit counseling in agreement with bankruptcy law.
