Bankruptcy Relief

 

One of the main solutions for dealing with crushing debt is the process of Bankruptcy. Although it can be a complex process you have the right to file through the courts for relief of your debt and this can be handled through either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in most consumer debt situations.

 

Your first option is to have a bankruptcy trustee liquidate your non-exempt assets and use the proceeds to make payments to your creditors then discharge or “wipe out” your remaining debts. Your second option is to restructure your debts if you have the ability to pay them but under different terms than originally agreed. As well, possibly any debts remaining at the end of the new payment plan could be eligible to be discharged.
