What Are the Benefits of Filing For Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

If you are overwhelmed with debt, filing for bankruptcy will:

  • Stop creditor harassment
  • Stop wage garnishment
  • Liquidate your unsecured debt
  • Give you foreclosure relief

Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy creates an automatic stay that stops all collection processes. It will not necessarily save your home, but it will buy you time by stalling the foreclosure process until after the bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy and Divorce

Divorce can lead to extreme financial hardship for both spouses. Couples often find that where there is enough money to support one household together, running two households separately is not financially possible. If you are divorced and you are considering bankruptcy, there are some debts that cannot be discharged, including child support and spousal support payments.
