If you are unable to pay your bills, filing for bankruptcy can provide immediate relief from your creditors and allow you time to reorganize your finances. The Law Offices of Kirk Rankin & Associates has helped many clients discharge their debts and obtain a fresh start in their finances. Our clients have been able to restore their credits within two years and obtain approvals for automobile loans, credit cards, and home mortgage loans.

Filing for bankruptcy can help:

  • protect your home
  • protect your car
  • protect your salary

Find out if you can liquidate your debt under Chapter 7, or extend your debt repayment to five years under Chapter 13.

Chapter 7 Liquidation Under the Bankruptcy Code. This type of bankruptcy is known as Liquidation of Debts. You can file for Liquidation of Debts if you possess few assets but want to safeguard a portion your assets. A portion of your assets can be protected while all unsecured debts are wiped out. You will also be required to complete two credit counseling courses. Once these courses are complete, a bankruptcy petition will be submitted to the Bankruptcy Court. The Court will then schedule a creditor's meeting where our attorney will be present to accompany and guide you. After a few weeks, a Discharge notice from the Court will be issued. Finally, a new, fresh, and debt-free life will begin for you.

Chapter 13 Individual Debt Adjustment. The Individual Debt Adjustment option helps those who do not qualify for Chapter 7 Liquidation Under the Bankruptcy Code. It provides an opportunity for you to repay all or a portion of your debts in installments over a determined period of time. After a payment plan is submitted to the Bankruptcy Court, the Court will either approve or reject the payment plan. If the plan is approved, you will start to make the installments until the culmination of the payment period when debts are discharged. Chapter 13 is recommended for individuals who have many assets and would like to retain them.
