Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
When your debts and expenses exceed your income every month, you are in serious financial trouble. Unless something changes, there is no way to maintain the status quo for long. Many people in this situation will liquidate their retirement and other savings plans, skip payments only to lose their cars or homes, and take "payday" loans at dangerously high-interest rates. However, these actions only exacerbate the problem.
If you are facing serious financial problems, do not liquidate your retirement accounts or take out high-interest loans to pay for your monthly debts and expenses. This is a slippery slope that will cause further problems down the road. Talk with a lawyer from our firm as soon as possible. We can help you. 360-423-0242.Get The Help You Need From An Experienced Longview Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney
At Kevin R. Vibbert, Attorney at Law, we have been helping clients find debt-relief solutions through Chapter 7 bankruptcy since 1997. We represent clients in Longview, Kelso, Cowlitz County and the surrounding area in Washington. Through our thriving Chapter 7 practice, we can help you:
- Stop creditor harassment: Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you stop harassing phone calls and other forms of creditor harassment.
- Stop wage garnishments right now: Chapter 7 will stop wage garnishments upon filing the case with the Court. In some situations we can even recover the garnished wages for you.
- Save your home, car and other assets: Many people think that filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will result in losing everything they own, but this is simply not the case. Through state and federal exemptions, and the liquidation of other debts, we have been able to help many clients save their essential assets.
- Get a fresh financial start: Many people worry about their credit and life after bankruptcy, but in most cases, life is much better after a bankruptcy, not worse. It cleans the slate and a fresh start so that you can rebuild your finances.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy generally takes three to four months from time you file your petition until the case is complete. Before you can file, you will need to go through a credit counseling program. This can be done over the Internet and takes less than two hours to complete. Before you meet with your lawyer, you will have to prepare your tax returns, your payroll stubs, debt information and information about your assets.
Once we have your information, we can process the file within a few days. Since everything is done electronically now, we can have your bankruptcy case filed in less than a day in emergency situations.
Do not be afraid to call, even if it is last minute. We can help you. We will help you determine whether Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a good option for you, and we will be there for you every step of the way.Contact Kevin R. Vibbert, Attorney At Law
