Is Bankruptcy Right for You?

The most common bankruptcies for individuals are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, both of which have their own advantages.

Chapter 7 wipes out a wide range of general debts, from medical debt to credit card debt. It is, therefore, the traditional fresh start bankruptcy. There is a common misconception that filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 means you will lose your home, but that is not true for many cases. At Watton Law Group, we have helped thousands of clients find relief from debt without losing their properties and assets.

We have also had a great deal of success in helping clients under Chapter 13. In Chapter 13 bankruptcies, debts are not eliminated outright but restructured. They require regular payments to be made over the course of a three- to five-year personalized repayment plan. Once all payments have been completed, certain low priority debts will be discharged, and the bankruptcy case will be closed. You can keep your properties and assets, while settling your debt for pennies on the dollar.
