Missouri Bankruptcy Attorneys

Serving Clients Statewide

Few things are as stressful and overwhelming as dealing with financial challenges. If you are facing significant debt, constantly receiving calls from creditors, or dealing with wage garnishment, foreclosure, or other collection activities, there is hope.

Filing for bankruptcy can provide the relief you need. Some types of bankruptcy completely eliminate most or all of your debts, whereas others allow you to develop a three- to five-year plan for repaying your creditors. The right choice for you will depend on your specific circumstances, including your current income, available assets, and level of secured and unsecured debts.

At Watton Law Group, we have been helping clients navigate the bankruptcy system for more than 25 years. Our Missouri bankruptcy attorneys are highly knowledgeable of federal bankruptcy statutes, as well as applicable state laws, and can help you fully understand your legal options. We emphasize a compassionate, client-centered approach based on communication, honesty, and integrity.

What Bankruptcy Can—and Cannot—Do

In the simplest terms, filing for bankruptcy allows individuals to regain financial control. Depending on the type of bankruptcy filed, this may mean the total discharge of most or all debts, or it may involve the restructuring and repayment of debts over a specified period of time.

Some examples of different types of debts that may be discharged via bankruptcy include:

  • Credit card debt
  • Medical bills
  • Personal loans
  • Past-due utility bills

In a reorganization bankruptcy, you may be able to restructure certain secured debts, such as real estate mortgages and auto loans, allowing you to make more manageable monthly payments and catch up on overdue or past-due payments.

However, generally bankruptcy does not eliminate or allow for the restructuring of all financial liabilities.

  • Child support payments
  • Spousal support (alimony) payments
  • Most student loans and tax debts
  • Fines and payments associated with criminal legal proceedings
  • Court-ordered payments for personal injury or death caused by drunk driving
