Choosing The Right Bankruptcy Attorney
When looking for a bankruptcy attorney in New Jersey, of course, you want somebody who is part of the New Jersey Bar, but you also want an attorney who’s practice concentrates on bankruptcy. You also need an attorney who is experienced in foreclosures and mortgage remodifications, which we here at All Jersey Bankruptcy are. If you have any more questions concerning that, call our office and we’ll be happy to answer you about our credentials.
Reasons To File for Bankruptcy
If you’re reading this, you’re probably exploring the option of bankruptcy and wondering if this is the right option for you. Some of the reasons people consider filing for bankruptcy are because they have judgments filed against them, which means that your wages could be garnished or your bank account levied (they’ve taken money out of your account.) In many cases, those funds can be recovered and we can stop the wage garnishment. Also, if you’re falling behind in your mortgage, if you’re interested in protecting your home or protecting your car, if you’re just having problems making your monthly bills at the end of the month, you may want to consider bankruptcy, as you can discharge or settle your accounts for pennies on the dollar, depending on which chapter you decided to file for. If you have any questions regarding this, contact our office.
Who Can File For Bankruptcy
Anybody can file for bankruptcy. However, the question is, which bankruptcy is right for you, Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13? Chapter 7 would be a complete discharge of your unsecured debts, and a Chapter 13 would be a repayment plan when you want to maintain secure debts, such as a home or a car. If you have any questions about whether bankruptcy is right for you or which bankruptcy is right for you, please contact our office.
Filing For Bankruptcy With Your Spouse
Another question that we find comes through our office a lot is from married couples or married individuals who wonder if they file for bankruptcy, does their spouse also have to file for bankruptcy? The answer is, no, you can file individually. Sometimes, however, it is beneficial for both partners to file together. Should you choose to file jointly, here in our office, we do not charge extra for the spouse filing jointly, but it is not a requirement. You must consider or you must understand, however, that the income for both spouses will play into the bankruptcy, whether both or one file.
Filing For Bankruptcy When You Have Previous Judgments
Here in our South Jersey office, a big question we have from people exploring the option of bankruptcy is, “Can I not file if I already have judgments against me?” The answer is, yes, you can. As a matter of fact, those judgments are a good reason to file for bankruptcy, as we can stop the wage garnishment and maybe even, in some cases, recover the lost monies. If you have any questions about whether this is right for you or how it can help your situation, please call our office.
