For more information about bankruptcy solutions, click on one of the following links:

Chapter 7 bankruptcy: Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to eliminate unsecured debts such as credit card bills, hospital bills, utility bills and unpaid traffic tickets. At the same time, it will put an immediate stop to creditor harassment, wage garnishments, home foreclosure and car repossession.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy: If your income is too high to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or if you have significant equity in your home that won’t be protected in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, you can still get relief from debts by filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Credit card debt and debt consolidation: For some people, debt consolidation provides an alternative to bankruptcy. However, credit card consolidation doesn’t offer the same protection as a bankruptcy filing. It’s important to discuss your options with an experienced lawyer.

Home foreclosure defense: If you are facing home foreclosure, you can put a stop the process by filing for bankruptcy. This process can give you the time you need to evaluate your options, which may include Chapter 13 bankruptcy, loan modification or a short sale.

We offer a free initial consultation so you can discuss your debt problems with an experienced bankruptcy attorney. We serve clients in the Chicago area and throughout northern Illinois.

Bankruptcy and tax debts: There is misconception that you can’t discharge income tax debts by filing bankruptcy. However, tax debts can be discharged if the debt is more than three years old and you filed income taxes in a timely manner.
