What Type of Bankruptcy Is Best for My Situation?

If you’re considering a bankruptcy to deal with unmanageable debt, you may consider various types of bankruptcy. Our Dallas bankruptcy attorney can help you with the following:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy – This type of bankruptcy is often called “liquidation.” It allows you to eliminate your debt quickly, thereby allowing you to move forward with your life without paying back creditors for a long period of time.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy – This type of bankruptcy involves restructuring debt into a manageable payment plan that may last from three to five years. If you don’t qualify for a Chapter 7, then a Chapter 13 may be a good option for you.

Determining which type of bankruptcy is right for you requires consideration of your ability to repay your debts. Our Dallas bankruptcy attorney will review your situation as well as help you understand your bankruptcy options.

Steps to Filing Bankruptcy

The bankruptcy process can be extremely complex, involving federal court procedures and extensive legal documents. We can help you with the following steps:

1) Gathering Information

You must have a significant amount of information gathered prior to filing for bankruptcy, including the following:

  • Pay stubs
  • Credit reports
  • Proof of monthly bills
  • Income tax returns
  • Bank statements
  • Car titles
  • Housing contracts
  • Life insurance policies
  • Personal property valuations
  • Collections notices
  • Lawsuits

Our Dallas bankruptcy attorney can help you gather all of the necessary information.

2) Completing a Bankruptcy Course

Prior to filing for bankruptcy, you will need to complete a counseling course, which is available online. We can help you find the right course for you.

3) Preparing Legal Documents

Federal bankruptcy courts require specific legal documents to be filed with your case. Our Dallas bankruptcy attorney can draft each document for you, in addition to making sure it is filed appropriately with the court.

4) Attending the Meeting of the Creditors

One of the first steps of your bankruptcy will be a meeting of the creditors. This will usually take place four to six weeks after you file for bankruptcy. Your Dallas bankruptcy attorney will attend this meeting with you and help you answer necessary questions.

5) Appearing at Other Hearings

Your attorney can appear at any other hearings for you. He will also discuss your financial situation with creditors. If a creditor tries to contact you after you’ve filed for bankruptcy, you should direct them to your Dallas bankruptcy attorney.

6) Finalizing the Bankruptcy

If you filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your bankruptcy will take between four and six months to finalize. Chapter 13 will last for the length of your repayment plan, up to five years. We will stand beside you at every step of the process.

Rebuilding Your Credit After Bankruptcy

After you file for bankruptcy, you will have the opportunity to rebuild your credit. You will be able to buy a car and purchase a home, as well as obtain credit cards in the future. Most of these endeavors will have waiting periods, however. For more information about how to rebuild credit after a bankruptcy, contact our Dallas bankruptcy attorney today.
