Bankruptcy

Utah Bankruptcy Attorney: Jeremy B. Atwood

Mr. Atwood knows how to help you through your financial trouble. He will honestly evaluate whether bankruptcy is right for you. Schedule a free consultation to determine what your options are. Bankruptcy is not the right option for everyone, but it is a way to gain a fresh start for many debtors finding themselves in financial hardship. It will stop creditors from attempting to collect debts from you. It will stop repossessions, foreclosures, and collection law suits. Get the honest answers you need to determine whether chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy is the right road for your recovery from debt so you can start rebuilding your credit.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 is the most commonly filed chapter of bankruptcy. It is the cheapest and quickest option in bankruptcy for relief from your troubling debt. Chapter 7 is considered a liquidation which means the trustee assigned to your case will review your assets in order to determine whether you have anything worth liquidating or selling for the benefit of your creditors. Consult with Mr. Atwood in order to discuss whether you have assets that could be lost in a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Most clients loose nothing due to many assets being covered by Utah’s exemption laws, but there may be items that could be taken you are not aware of so come in for an evaluation.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Generally clients should not file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy (instead of a chapter 7) unless they have a good reason to do so. Chapter 13 bankruptcies, although they can be filed for less money down, cost much more in the long run than a Chapter 7. However there are good reasons to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. A common reason clients file a Chapter 13 when they could file a Chapter 7 is to stop a home from foreclosure. Unlike a Chapter 7, you do not need to be current on your mortgage in order to keep your home in a Chapter 13. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is simply a repayment plan where you make a pre-determined monthly payment for 3 to 5 years. This allows you to catch up on mortgage payments you are behind on. Chapter 13 bankruptcies are complex and can be difficult, but they can be a great tool for debtors in need.
