Considering Bankruptcy? Our Arizona Bankruptcy Attorneys Can Help
If you owe creditors more money that you are able to pay, then bankruptcy is certainly an option for you to consider. One of the main objectives of our federal bankruptcy laws are to provide you with a release and a discharge from your debts when they become too much to handle. For some, that discharge completely wipes away all obligations to pay, as with a Chapter 7 Liquidation. For others, discharge comes with the last payment in a court-approved plan, often for pennies on the dollar, under a Reorganization through Chapter 11 or Chapter 13.

- Loss of Job or underemployment (making a lot less than you used to)

Should I File Using a Lawyer?
When individuals suffer through financial hardships in life, they often ask themselves if their situation is so dire that they need a bankruptcy lawyer. If you are simply not sure if you should file for bankruptcy, the best thing to do would be to speak to an experienced Arizona bankruptcy attorney who can give you more information about your debt relief options. Here are a few signs, which may serve as an indication of your financial situation and point to the need for a bankruptcy lawyer.
- Credit card debt: If you are carrying a high credit card balance and are in a position where paying the balance seems unrealistic or impossible, that’s a sign of trouble. Credit card debt is generally considered “unsecured debt.” Therefore, it could be discharged by filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Once your bankruptcy proceeding is concluded, your credit card debt may be eliminated.
- Medical debt: Statistics show that medical bills have recently overtaken credit card bills as the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States. If you have a large amount of unsecured debt including medical bills, you may want to consider Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It may be just what you need to lighten the burden and get a fresh start.
- Borrowing from retirement: If you are borrowing from your retirement accounts to pay off your debts or are considering doing so, that is also a red flag, which indicates that you are overwhelmed financially. Taking money from your retirement accounts to pay off dischargeable debts is a bad idea.
- Foreclosure and repossession: If you are about to lose your home to foreclosure or if your vehicle is about to be repossessed, you need to call a bankruptcy lawyer to discuss your options. A bankruptcy filing could stop foreclosure of a home or repossession of a vehicle in its tracks. You may have a chance with bankruptcy to save these valuable assets you worked so hard to acquire.
- Harassment by creditors: If you are getting threatening and harassing calls and messages from creditors about certain debts, understand that by filing for bankruptcy protection, you can put an end to this harassment. Filing bankruptcy will prevent creditors from communicating with you in any way including calls or demand letters.
- Wage garnishment: If you are losing a part of your paycheck because you owe money, that is a sure sign of trouble. This could land you further in the hole because, now, you don’t have money to save or invest. You are trying to make ends meet living paycheck to paycheck.
- Poor credit: Many believe that filing for bankruptcy will permanently destroy their credit. But this is not true. While your credit rating may initially take a hit, you can immediately start working on rebuilding your credit after a bankruptcy. Once you are relieved from your debt and are able to reorganize your finances, your credit score will grow. When you make smart financial decisions, filing for bankruptcy can actually help improve your credit score over time.
Bankruptcy Chapters 7, 11, 13 and How They Apply To You
You may be wondering which chapter is best, knowing you need protection from the creditors that hound you day in and day out, and relief from the debts that are overwhelming you and your family.
First, each chapter serves a purpose. Selecting the most beneficial chapter requires close examination of your unique financial circumstances.
Second, each chapter has precise requirements. When an individual doesn’t meet the specified criteria under a particular chapter, then relief under that chapter may not be available or may not be fully advantageous. Everyone’s situation is different — when it comes to bankruptcy, one size does not fit all!
