Legal Insights

What Are The Benefits Of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

If you are unable to pay your bills and feel like your debt is spiraling out of control, then Chapter 13 bankruptcy may help you and your family to take control over your finances.

What are the benefits of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

The most important benefit of Chapter 7 is the discharge and forgiveness of your debt. For many families suffering from the high cost hospital bills or unemployment, Chapter 7 will provide much needed financial relief.

How Does Chapter 12 Bankruptcy Help Family Farms?

The U.S. Bankruptcy Code recently evolved, and this time it’s positive news for family farms. Chapter 12, the portion of the Bankruptcy Code dedicated to the bankruptcy of agricultural businesses, has been amended to increase the qualifying debt ceiling from $4.1 million to $10 million - a jump that will help scores of family farms who were previously ineligible to seek bankruptcy as a debt relief option.
