Oakland Bankruptcy Attorney

Are you currently struggling with overwhelming debt that you are unable to repay? If yes, then you may be well-served by evaluating your debt relief options which may include a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Since the economic downturn, millions of Americans have found much needed debt relief through filing for bankruptcy protection, an effective legal remedy that has afforded countless American families the second chance and financial fresh start they truly deserved. To find out if bankruptcy is right for you, we strongly encourage you to speak with a qualified Oakland bankruptcy lawyer from The Bankruptcy Law Firm.

We understand the great amounts of stress and anxiety involved in having an unsustainable debt load and we take great pride in helping individuals and couples find real-life, workable solutions that put them back on track to true financial recovery.

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Is bankruptcy right for you? If you are falling behind on your monthly obligations or if your credit has already suffered from charge offs, collections, or 30, 60 or 90 day late payments, then it's a good idea to consider your bankruptcy options. Most individual filers file either a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, both of which can offer much needed debt relief. The Chapter 7 is an excellent option for those who have a small or irregular income, while the Chapter 13 is suitable for debtors with a steady monthly income or for debtors who want to save their home from foreclosure.

The good news is, with both types of bankruptcies it is entirely possible to rebuild one's credit rating following a discharge. We can help debtors learn what types of steps they need to take to reestablish good credit, which in many cases can be accomplished much faster after a bankruptcy as opposed to spending years slowly chipping away at a mountain of debt.
