There has been a great deal of anxiety regarding changes to the bankruptcy laws that took effect in 2005 and how those laws impact the right to consumer debt relief. While it is true that those changes were pushed for by credit card companies and that there are some limitations on filing, a knowledgeable and effective bankruptcy attorney can still help you change your life for the better and build a fresh start.
At the law firm of Abbott & Abbott, we handle Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies for clients from all walks of life. If you are concerned about losing your home, dealing with creditors or simply facing debt that is making it difficult to live worry-free, bankruptcy may be the right option for you. We will review your circumstances and advise you as to whether bankruptcy makes sense or if there is another solution that would better fit your needs.
Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Georgia
Our firm assists clients in taking advantage of Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, which allows individuals and some small-business owners to liquidate their assets to discharge debts, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which works through a repayment plan. There are important differences between Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 and we will guide you through every step of your case. It may even be possible to get rid of your debt without losing your home or car.
It is important to work with an experienced bankruptcy attorney who can evaluate all aspects of your situation and build an effective strategy for your bankruptcy case that meets your specific needs. While you may have tough choices to make regarding your future, we will always make sure that you understand what those choices will mean in the short-term and the long-term.
