There are several misconceptions about bankruptcy. One of the biggest myths is that filing for bankruptcy is a sign of failure. Nothing could be further from the truth. Salt Lake City is home to many people who have fallen on hard times. But debt does not have to be a life sentence. Some of the most successful people in American history have filed for bankruptcy, including Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ford, Walt Disney and current President Donald Trump. Bankruptcy is an effective remedy to help people resolve their debt and go on their the lives with complete peace of mind. As an experienced Salt Lake City bankruptcy attorney, I can effectively evaluate your situation and determine which type of bankruptcy presents the best option.
Not all types of bankruptcy are the same. For example, Chapter 7 bankruptcy involves the liquidation of assets through an appointed trustee to pay off debts. Chapter 13 involves a payment plan arranged by the court to pay back at least a portion of the debt. Each person who files for bankruptcy will need to take a means test, which determines their ability to pay off their debt. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is generally for those who have little or no income to cover their debt. Those who have a good income may not qualify for Chapter 7 and may be able to enroll for Chapter 13. As an experienced Salt Lake City Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 lawyer, I can carefully examine your situation and make an assessment on how to proceed.
