Get A Fresh Start with Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Services
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often called the fresh start option because it allows you to wipe out most or all of your unsecured debt, including medical bills, credit card bills and utility bills. Compared to other types of bankruptcy, the process can be done relatively quickly. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can eliminate most of your unsecured debt in roughly three to four months. It offers individuals immediate relief from creditors.
There are several protections that are triggered when you file for bankruptcy. The minute a Chapter 7 is filed, an “automatic stay” goes into effect. When you file for bankruptcy, creditors are prohibited from continuing with their collections efforts, so you don’t have to endure harassment or any form of communication from them. This means that no creditor can call you, they cannot write to you and they cannot sue you. If a lawsuit is already pending against you, it is stopped upon your bankruptcy filing. The filing of a bankruptcy procedure will immediately stop collection calls and collection actions against you, and will terminate wage garnishments. If you are going through any of these scenarios, Chapter 7 may be the best option for you. Discuss your particular situation with a lawyer and they can go over the eligibility requirements with you.

Any violations of your rights by a creditor are violations of federal law and are taken very seriously. These violations of the Automatic Stay provision or discharge provision under the United States Bankruptcy Code may provide you with legal rights against the creditor and allow you to collect money damages against any creditor attempting to collect its debts subsequent to the filing of your bankruptcy petition. If you suspect or notice any kind of violation against your rights made by creditors looking to collect their debt, contact a bankruptcy lawyer right away for legal advice.
