There are different kinds of bankruptcy that depend on your needs. U.S. bankruptcy laws allow some people to get a fresh start by filing chapter 7 bankruptcy. Still others are able to consolidate debt in to one manageable monthly payment through chapter 13. So, if you’ve suffered financial difficulties, and having trouble paying your monthly bills bankruptcy may be right for you. Before deciding to file you should consult our local bankruptcy attorneys and discuss the details of your particular situation.
Benefits of Filing Bankruptcy:
Generally, bankruptcy can provide several benefits to you. First, by filing bankruptcy, many of your debts are forgiven or paid through a restructuring plan. Second, the telephone calls and letters from creditors to you, your family, and your workplace will stop. Third, if you’re payroll check is being garnished, the garnishment will stop the moment we file your case. Finally, filing bankruptcy may be a means for you to get your life and your finances back on track again.
Bad credit often creates a vicious cycle for many Oklahoman’s. Once you miss a payment, the cycle begins. Then the late fees and interest start to pile up, making it even harder to pay the monthly bills. Once your credit score falls, the car and home loans you receive usually are at a very high interest rate. Before you know it, your car is being repossessed or your home is being foreclosed on. Then to top it all off, they begin to garnish your paychecks and bank account. This in-turn causes you to miss even more monthly payments. For most, this will go on forever. You have the ability to stop the cycle and get a fresh start with a chapter 7 bankruptcy. If chapter 7 isn’t for you a chapter 13 restructures your debt. This allows you to make one monthly payment consolidating what you owe.

Tulsa Bankruptcy Attorneys Discuss New Laws:
Beginning in 2005 a new bankruptcy law was passed. Over the years there have been all sorts of false rumors about who can file and what can be forgiven in bankruptcy. The truth is that what’s forgiven under the new law is largely the same as the old law. This means that you can still discharge all credit card debt, medical debt, repossessions and foreclosures. Additionally you get forgiveness for money judgments, garnishments and most other unsecured debts. The primary difference in the law is that certain income limits, “means test” now apply. This means that if you make above the median family income you may have to file a chapter 13 rather than a chapter 7.
