Shreveport Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
If you are struggling with debt in the Shreveport area, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be an effective solution. This type of bankruptcy allows people to discharge their credit card debts, medical debts, and mortgage loans. An individual can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy if their income is below the median in Louisiana or if they can pass a means test to be eligible. Almost everyone who is below the median income level in the state will be eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, if their income is higher, they may still be able to qualify. If a prospective client can pass the means test, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy can be an effective solution for those who are struggling with debt. At Simon Fitzgerald LLC, our experienced bankruptcy attorneys can help individuals evaluate their situation and develop a plan that will work for them.
Shreveport Chapter 13 Bankruptcy – No Attorney Fees Up Front
If you are considering filing for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy in the Shreveport area, speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney at Simon Fitzgerald LLC. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows people to pay their debts over a long period of time, and it can reduce their monthly payments. It’s also the legal way to avoid foreclosure and keep their home. However, certain factors must be considered before a person is eligible to file a bankruptcy. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a type of debt relief that allows people to create and follow a debt payment plan. It can also prevent creditors from contacting them about their credit card debts, medical bills, and mortgage. An automatic stay can also help prevent these debts from being pursued during the course of the bankruptcy. In most Chapter 13 cases, we do not require you to pay the attorney fees in advance because the fees can be included in the monthly payments made to the Chapter 13 trustee. Court costs are normally paid prior to filing. (SEE FEES & COSTS)
