Before you can consider whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 is right for you, first must change the way you perceive the word “Bankruptcy.” Declaring bankruptcy is not about failure or embarrassment, Bankruptcy is about having the wisdom and wherewithal to pursue your rights per the United States legal court system to stabilize your situation and stave off creditors so you can successfully re-start your financial future.

In a Bankruptcy Proceeding, when your financial security is at stake, it is important to hire an experienced and competent bankruptcy attorney to guide the way and ultimately ensure you receive that in which you are legally entitled — A Financial Fresh Start! And when it comes to selecting that attorney, it makes sense to hire a local Bankruptcy Attorney, such as Colin Lloyd, who has the legacy, experience, and resources to fight for your future.

Bankruptcy is the legal means by which an individual or incorporated business reduces or completely eliminates financial obligations, thereby providing a Fresh Start. The Courts understand that financial hardships exist, often at no fault of the individual, and allows debts to be eliminated, reduced, or simply provide time to catch up on missed payments.

Bankruptcy — Understanding the facts and fallacies.

It is a major misconception that if you file bankruptcy you will lose your house, your car and it will destroy your credit. These are all misconceptions and an experienced bankruptcy attorney can ensure that the Court will not seize your assets and oftentimes credit scores increase after filing for bankruptcy protection.

Bankruptcy can be a complex process, and with many years of experience as a bankruptcy attorney here in Port St. Lucie, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, and Okeechobee, Colin Lloyd has the expertise to guide you through this difficult time. And because your financial outlook is at risk, we provide FREE same-day consultations so you can learn your options and start looking forward to your financial future.

Which form of Bankruptcy is right for my situation?

Chapter 7 (Liquidation) – A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the most common and traditionally what most individuals believe to be a bankruptcy filing. In Chapter 7, most debts are immediately discharged within a few months of filing bankruptcy. The Court does restrict the number of assets an individual may protect before being required to turn over such unprotected assets to the Court. An experienced bankruptcy attorney at our firm will carefully review your assets to ensure that this does not happen without your consent prior to filing the bankruptcy petition.

Chapter 13 (Reorganization) – A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is where an individual proposes a payment plan with the Court whereby payments are made on a monthly basis to the Court. The Court does not seize assets, rather allows an individual who has more assets than can be protected to voluntarily set up a payment plan to keep those assets. The Court additionally allows an expanded or Super Discharge in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy where certain debts that are nondischargeable in Chapter 7 can be discharged.
