A Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as a liquidation bankruptcy, is often best for people with unmanageable amounts of unsecured debt. Most unsecured debt is discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy automatic stops all collection efforts by your creditors. Once you file for bankruptcy, your creditors are not allowed to contact you in any way to enforce a debt. All debt collection efforts, including legal proceedings, are stopped. This includes foreclosure lawsuits, collection judgments, and wage garnishments.
We are a debt relief firm. We help people file bankruptcy petitions to obtain relief under the bankruptcy code. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
