You know your financial problems won’t just go away but you don’t know how to begin get back on track.
Take Charge. Bankruptcy may offer a solution. Even under today’s tougher bankruptcy laws, most people still qualify for full protection and a fresh start under the Bankruptcy Code. Bankruptcy can provide powerful relief from creditors and help you to regain financial stability. Depending on your circumstances, your debts can be resolved under a Chapter 7 or “straight” bankruptcy in as little as 4 months, or you can repay a portion of your debts under a 3-to-5 year Chapter 13 plan. Businesses and some individuals can restructure their debts under Chapter 11 while retaining control of their assets.
