Credit Card Debt in Bankruptcy

Credit Card Debt in Bankruptcy

The Liviakis Law Firm has been assisting individuals and families with debt resolution and financial difficulties since 2008. Burgeoning credit card debt, caused by inability to pay more than minimum payments and high interest rates, is often cited as a reason for considering filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Filing for bankruptcy will ensure an end to creditor harassment, garnishment of wages and foreclosure proceedings, as well as most other legal proceedings related to your debts.

Can Bankruptcy Clear Credit Card Debt?

Credit card debt is dischargeable under Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy and is generally unsecured by collateral. If unsecured, credit card debt is prioritized behind secured debts such as mortgage payments in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Proceeds from liquidation of assets may cover only a small part of your credit, or none at all, in full satisfaction of the debt owed.

Credit card debt can also be included in the development of an affordable repayment plan under Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This allows it to be paid off in manageable payments over a three- to five-year period.
