How do I know if I qualify to file Bankruptcy?

Contacting an experienced Florida Bankruptcy Lawyer should be your first step. They will be able to tell you if you can file bankruptcy, whether you need to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 and provide you with all the necessary information you need to make an informed decision.

Does Bankruptcy get rid of all of my debt?

No. In the vast majority of cases a bankruptcy cannot wipe away all types of debt. Bankruptcy is most concerned with consumer debt.

If I file, will my credit be damaged forever.

This is a common misconception. A Florida Bankruptcy Lawyer can assess your individual situation but as far as reporting goes, the bankruptcy will cease being recorded on your credit report in the same amount of time as any debt.

What is a chapter 7 bankruptcy?.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a legal process with a main purpose of quickly relieving someone who i s hopelessly overwhelmed by debt. Chapter 7, sometimes referred to as "straight bankruptcy," is a liquidation proceeding. The debtor is allowed to keep "exempt" property, what constitutes exempt property can vary from state to state. The debtor turns over specific property, called "non-exempt" property to the bankruptcy trustee who then converts it to cash used to pay off debts. This process generally takes about four months to complete. In the majority of cases the debtor has no assets that he would lose, so Chapter 7 will give that person a relatively quick "fresh start." The most common reasons for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy are unemployment, large medical expenses, seriously overextended credit, marital problems, and other large unexpected expenses.
