Should You File Bankruptcy? Debt Settlement, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Many local residents are confused about how debt settlement and bankruptcy actually help reduce debt in a dignified way. We educate our clients with simple legal advice to turn their financial problems around. We will explain how filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy works to eliminate credit card and medical debt. Liquidation bankruptcy usually works well for renters with low-income. While middle-income residents often file Chapter 13 bankruptcy to help reduce payments on all types of debt while ensuring that they can maintain valuable real estate. Alternatively, debt settlement works well for those with substantial savings that want a quick resolution to long lasting pressure from creditors.

Limitations of Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Not everyone qualifies for chapter 7 bankruptcy because of a stringent income test that compares a debtor's income to the median income of a family of the same size. Many people in debt considering bankruptcy have higher than average household income figures. If chapter 7 bankruptcy is no longer an option for you, consider chapter 13 bankruptcy or debt settlement because they offer debt relief to higher income debtors. Read more about filing both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Offers Relief for Homeowners and High Income Earners

Chapter 13 plans can actually eliminate just as much debt as chapter 7. In Sacramento, California chapter 13 bankruptcy debtors pay less than half of their credit card debt on average. And when your income is lower than average you can submit a plan that offers to pay zero dollars towards credit cards. This makes it similar to what a debtor would pay credit card companies in chapter 7 bankruptcy. In addition to reducing the principal debt on credit cards, a debtor may also obtain a significant interest rate reduction. For debtors that earn higher than average income chapter 13 offers a real change to get out of debt and still have money available for living expenses.

Protecting Your Family Home from Foreclosure in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

With rising home values, residents have a lot at stake in trying to protect their family residence. Mortgage and credit card companies often look at the value of a homeowner's home when deciding whether to sue or foreclose. Chapter 13 gives homeowners protection to keep their homes away from the foreclosure process. Credit card companies cannot bring lawsuits against homeowners when they are in a chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Credit Card Debt Prevents Californians From Retiring Debt Free

Many Californians are in the habit of buying new products and paying for them later. Paying later is expensive because if you are paying 20% interest, a $500 credit card purchase could cost $1500 by the time it's paid in full. After paying the minimum monthly payment on the cards a consumer ends up needing the cards just to cover their living expenses. This cycle often continues for years, eating up the majority of disposable income that a consumer earns during the prime of their career.

How to Eliminate High Interest Credit Card Debt in Bankruptcy

You can stop the credit card interest cycle and start saving for retirement by changing your charging habits. Bankruptcy is a powerful way to zero-out credit card balances. For those that have the ability to pay back some or all of the debt, chapter 13 bankruptcy gives debtors a chance to pay a percentage of the debt without interest. After bankruptcy a debtor usually finds relief in only buying things that they can afford while regaining access to credit cards in a responsible way.
