The Facts on Bankruptcy:

  • Many bankruptcies happen not due to negligible spending habits, but emergencies, such as sudden life changes, job redundancy, divorce, or emergency medicine
  • More than 1,000,000 Americans filed for some form of bankruptcy in 2009.
  • Americans in debt in 2009 were forced to deal with almost $65,000 worth of debt just in their name alone

If you are in need of a new start, the bankruptcy law offices of Malaise Law Firm is here to give you assistance. Take power of your finances and take power of your life.

Common Forms of Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

If you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you are able to get the help you need to eliminate debt. This debt might include unsecured loans, medical bills, utility payment, credit card bills, and other massive payments. Relief of this type can help those who are behind on scheduled payments for credit cards. This relief can also assist those who have endured a serious life change.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

If you are a business and are in need, you need to declare Chapter 11. By declaring Chapter 11, you will be able to restructure any pre-existing debt in order to be able to pay the amount back in a prompt and safe manner. This option is not open to individuals. This is strictly a business only bankruptcy option.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy allows those in need to adjust their debt individually. This declaration is best for those that are in a very temporary hardship, but still need a hand. Instead of having to restructure heavily or work to eliminate debt in a more serious term, those affected will be able to repay within 3-5 years.

Whether you are considering filing for Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or even if you don’t know which chapter is right for you, our Corpus Christi bankruptcy lawyers can help you with forms, procedures, and what to expect.
