What Will Happen When I File Bankruptcy?
As soon as you retain the The Law Office of Rachel Matos and your Bankruptcy is filed, your creditors will get a letter declaring you have filed. This immediately stops attempts to collect your debt and any kind of harassing calls and letter. If there are those who did not receive the word that you filed and they call, you will be able to provide a case number to prove your Bankruptcy filing and stop the collection attempts yourself. Foreclosure proceedings will also be halted after you file for Bankruptcy, along with any wage garnishments or attempts to shut off utilities. Most of your debt will be discharged, giving you a chance to start your financial life over again.
What kind of debt cannot be discharged with a Bankruptcy filing?
Contrary to what some may believe, filing Bankruptcy will not discharge all of your debt. You will not have past due amounts for missed mortgage payments or car payments eliminated by Chapter 13 but you can eliminate them in a Chapter 7. You also cannot discharge debt for child support, alimony, some taxes, or student loans. You also cannot avoid paying court ordered fines.
