Protection Against Liquidation, Repossession And More

For most of our clients, bankruptcy filing is the best way to protect assets when creditors and lenders are at their doorsteps, harassing them regularly and threatening liquidations and lawsuits. Even if your situation has not come to such a crisis, it is prudent to consult with a bankruptcy attorney and evaluate your options.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy shields assets from liquidation by creditors, even if court judgments have been levied, but you must act quickly with the help of professional legal representation. Some assets face increased risks in Chapter 7 as compared to Chapter 13.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy grants the same protections as Chapter 7 and allows you to negotiate more affordable repayment plans for remaining unsecured debts and secured debts.

What Assets Does Bankruptcy Protect?
