After the nation was hit with the "Great Recession," millions of American households endured great financial hardship. Employees lost their jobs in large numbers, more homeowners lost their homes to foreclosure, more Americans were forced to rely on credit cards to pay for their basic expenses, and so on.

California is one of the states that was hit particularly hard.

Taking Control of Your Debt Through Bankruptcy

There are a number of myths that prevent people from filing for bankruptcywhen they would truly benefit from doing so. One such myth is that most people file for bankruptcy because of poor spending habits. In reality, the majority of filers declare bankruptcy because of unforeseen circumstances such as a job loss, an accident or illness, or a divorce, all of which can wreak havoc on one's personal finances. Even people who have the best credit and intentions can lose their jobs and experience extended periods of unemployment, which can lead to damaging consequences such as vehicle repossession or the foreclosure of a home.

If you are experiencing financial distress, you can turn to our legal team for help! We can help you understand and determine if bankruptcy is right for you. If it is, our firm can walk you through the process of filing for either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Chapter 7 allows debtors to discharge (or wipe out) many types of unsecured debts, such as medical bills and credit card debt. It should be noted that the debtor may be required to have certain assets liquidated when using this debt relief option. Meanwhile, Chapter 13 allows the debtor to pay off all or a portion of his or her debt over a period of three to five years under and reorganized repayment structure.

We can help you with various areas relating to bankruptcy, including:
