Murrieta, CA Bankruptcy Lawyer

What is Bankruptcy & How is it Filed

Bankruptcy is a legal process that a person, organization, or municipality enters into when declared insolvent. In other words, when a person or entity can no longer afford to repay the debt owed to creditors because they lack enough revenue, the person or entity may file for bankruptcy.

Once a bankruptcy petition is filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the person or entity asserts impairment and inability to repay debts owed to creditors. A bankruptcy filing immediately halts all contact from creditors because of bankruptcy law stipulations.

File For Chapter 7 or 13 Bankruptcy in CA

There are numerous different types of bankruptcy that may be filed for in the United States, but the most common type is consumer bankruptcy. People who choose to file for consumer bankruptcy will have to choose between filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.

Your decision between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy will largely depend upon your present financial situation, outstanding debts, and ability to repay creditors. Bankruptcy is not necessarily the only option when facing a financial crisis, so it is important to consult with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer who can review your individual case.

Most people who decide to pursue bankruptcy are overwhelmed by debt and can no longer afford to make payments to their creditors. People may also choose to file for bankruptcy to remain in possession of their homes and to prevent foreclosure. A Murrieta bankruptcy lawyer from Singleton Smith Law Offices can sit down with you and assess your financial state and goals. After a thorough assessment, we will be able to advise on bankruptcy options that may be right for you.
