Our attorneys help both individuals and businesses explore their financial and legal options when faced with the possibility of bankruptcy. We can advise you on the best course of action.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy with the help of our attorneys allows both individuals and businesses to pay off an unlimited amount of debt over time. By presenting a structured three to five year payment plan to the court detailing how the debts will be repaid, debtors may move forward with resolving their finances without accruing interest on the funds they owe. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is ideal for individuals and companies that have a steady income and do not want to lose non-exempt property under Chapter 7. Our bankruptcy attorneys in New Jersey will assess your finances and debts, negotiate with your creditors and restructure your debt so that repayment is feasible.
Chapter 7 Personal Bankruptcy
Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy with the assistance of our attorneys allows for some debts to be dismissed through the liquidation of property. The funds generated through the liquidation are used to pay off outstanding debts. However, not all property needs be sold; some items are exempt from liquidation such as personal property, designated retirement funds, homes, vehicles and insurance policies. Most often, our New Jersey bankruptcy attorneys help individuals file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy when they are unable to pay off debts due to lack of income.
Chapter 11 Corporate Bankruptcy
Chapter 11 is similar to Chapter 13 in that it allows businesses to reorganize their debt and pay it off with continuing income. Unlike chapter 7, which would force the company to cease business and close, Chapter 11 allows the company to remain in business and try to turn around its financial situation. Our bankruptcy attorneys in New Jersey help businesses that are in debt take the opportunity to reassess their finances and creditor obligations and make strides toward resolving their debt. Chapter 11 bankruptcy allows for the most flexibility of the bankruptcy chapters and is most often the preferred bankruptcy filing for businesses.
