How Bankruptcy Works

Dallas Bankruptcy Law Firm – Obtain Financial Relief

Fort Worth Bankruptcy Attorney; What is Bankruptcy? Does it Eliminate Debt?

Bankruptcy laws are designed to protect individuals and married couples like you who are having difficulties paying their creditors. To obtain financial relief, stop foreclosure & creditor harassment, you have the legal right to declare bankruptcy and (depending on your individual situation) to possibly have your debts discharged (forgiven).

Depending upon your eligibility, you may have your debts extinguished within a few months through a Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy — or after completion of a Chapter 13 repayment plan. This affordable repayment plan allows those with a steady income to repay priority debts, plus secured and unsecured creditor debts within a 3 to 5 year time span.

Once your Bankruptcy Petition is filed, an Automatic Stay Order goes into effect. The Stay Order forbids your creditors from contacting or harassing you. It also puts a stop to any collection activity or civil legal action against you, such as:

If you notice yourself sinking deeper into debt, and fear that you will soon be unable to pay your car note or mortgage, it is advisable to see a lawyer immediately.

Once your debts are discharged, this gives you the breathing room you need to meet your priority debts and family obligations.

The Bankruptcy Discharge

After the bankruptcy Court grants you a discharge, you are no longer legally liable to repay your creditors discharged through the bankruptcy. The burden of debt is lifted and you are free to build a new financial future for yourself and for your family.
