Assisting Clients in Hollister Find Relief through Bankruptcy

United States bankruptcy laws allow consumers and businesses to find financial relief when they can no longer afford to pay their debts. People might face financial struggles for many different reasons, many of which are beyond their control. If you face unemployment, medical issues, legal judgments, failed investments, or other roadblocks, there are options for you to overcome your debt and start with a clean financial slate. You should not wait to discuss your options with our bankruptcy attorneys in Hollister – call the legal team at Miranda, Magden & Miranda, LLP today.

Is Bankruptcy Right for You?

Bankruptcy provides assistance for hundreds of thousands of households each year in the United States, including families from the Hollister area. However, bankruptcy is not the right choice for everyone, and it is important that you have a skilled bankruptcy lawyer evaluate your options.

There are different factors that can determine whether bankruptcy is the right choice, such as:

  • The type of debt you have
  • Whether you have the income to pay your debts
  • Your assets and property
  • Whether other debt-relief options may be successful
  • Whether you are at risk of losing your home

You should be open and honest with our attorneys in your confidential consultation, so we can best identify whether a bankruptcy case is the right avenue for your debt relief. 

Types of Bankruptcy

The next step is to decide which type of bankruptcy is right for you. Consumers generally file under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, and these are two very different types of cases.

Chapter 7 – Chapter 7 is commonly called “liquidation bankruptcy,” as you may have to relinquish nonexempt property in order to obtain the discharge of your unsecured debts. Your attorney can provide assistance in applying exemptions to protect the maximum amount of assets and property and can advise you of how much property might be at risk. Chapter 7 is a relatively quick process (often four to six months), and there is no payment plan requirement before your qualified debts can be wiped away. However, if you have too much income or property or you are in danger of losing your home, you might not qualify for Chapter 7, or it may not be the best option.

Chapter 13 – The second-most common type of consumer bankruptcy is Chapter 13, also known as “reorganization bankruptcy.” This type of case will not put your property in jeopardy, but it will require you to enter into a repayment plan with the bankruptcy court for three to five years. You will make a single monthly payment, which the bankruptcy trustee will then distribute to your creditors in order of priority. When you complete the payment plan, your remaining qualified debts can be discharged.
