Why Do You Need a Bankruptcy Attorney?
Like many legal matters, filing for bankruptcy can be a complicated and confusing subject. That is why it is so important to have an experienced and knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney on your side to guide you through the process and obtain the best possible outcome. A qualified bankruptcy attorney in Central Illinois can help you understand the laws and regulations that apply to your unique case, as well as help you navigate the filing process under local guidelines.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Under Chapter 7 (sometimes referred to as debt liquidation bankruptcy) the court grants relief from most types of debt including credit card balances, medical bill, and finance company loans. Some types of debts like recent income taxes, student loans, and child support obligations are not removed. For secured debts, like a home mortgage or vehicle loan, you have the option to keep the property and keep making the payments, or surrender the property to the lender and your liability removed. You generally are able to keep all of your property, unless you have substantial equity in the property beyond what Illinois law allows you to protect.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows individuals with a regular income to create a plan to repay their debts. Chapter 13 allows debtors create a repayment plan to make installments to creditors over three to five years. If the debtor's current monthly income is less than the applicable state median, the plan will be for three years unless the court approves a longer period. If the debtor's current monthly income is greater than the applicable state median, the plan usually must be for five years.
