Hernando County Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys
When people think of bankruptcy, they usually think of Chapter 7, in which the filer may petition the court to eliminate much of their unsecured debt such as credit cards and medical bills. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common filing. From start to finish, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy usually takes about 90 days in Florida.
Chapter 7 Truly Is The Fresh Start You May Be Looking For
If you are overwhelmed with debt and cannot break out from under it, Chapter 7 may be the right option for you, but not everyone qualifies. (For those who don’t, there is Chapter 13).

As Soon As You File, A Stay (Stop) Is Put On Any Adverse Legal Actions
Filing bankruptcy provides a shield against adverse creditor actions such as harassment and garnishments. Filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy will temporarily stop a home foreclosure or car repossession. However, you will need to become current on your payments or file Chapter 13 bankruptcy if you want to keep these assets.
