- Chapter 13 - We can also go over your options under Chapter 13 if you find yourself needing to save your home from foreclosure or your car from repossession.
- Chapter 11 - If you are a business owner struggling with debts related to your company, we can look over your options for a Chapter 11 filing.
Each of these chapters have different qualifications, procedures, and dischargeable debts. Our bankruptcy lawyers serving Fort Worth can help you find the best path to financial relief.
Can Filing for Bankruptcy in Fort Worth Protect Me?
One of the most horrible situations for a struggling debtor is to have wages garnished. Now there is not even enough money to pay for the basics, such as food, rent, and utilities. One advantage of filing for bankruptcy is that all collection actions will be halted by court order, called an automatic stay.
The automatic stay starts the moment you file your bankruptcy petition, stopping actions from debt collectors such as:
- Debt collector communication via phone, mail, and email
- Wage garnishments
- Utility disconnections
If you are facing foreclosure, if your car, truck or other vehicle is about to be repossessed, or your wages are being garnished, get in touch with our firm today. We know exactly what to do.
