What is Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy refers to a set of federal laws passed by congress and intended to provide relief to those whom are overcome by debt.

Can foreclosure be stopped?

The Bankruptcy stay prohibits a creditor from taking action against the debtor or the debtors property. That means the foreclosure case is stopped or stayed when the bankruptcy case is filed.

Will Bankruptcy help?

The general purpose of the Bankruptcy code is to provide those who qualify with a “fresh start”. Bankruptcy can provide a thoughtful person with a tool to help balance their budget and begin to lead a debt free, stress free life.

Can a repossession be stopped?

The stay prohibits a creditor from taking any action against the debtor or the debtor’s property without first obtaining relief from the stay.

Can you stop garnishments?

Garnishments must stop immediately after a Bankruptcy case has been filed, because section 362 of the Bankruptcy code creates an Automatic stay.

Can Co-signers be protected

yes, a co-signer can be protected once a bankruptcy case has been filed, however only if the debtor is willing to pay the debt in full.
