How Bankruptcy Can Help You
Bankruptcy can eliminate debt and give you a fresh start. Once your bankruptcy petition is filed creditors cannot call, garnish your wages, repossess your car, foreclose on your home, or take any other collection action. The legal mechanism that stops creditors is called the automatic stay and is codified in Section 362(a) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. It is important to note that the automatic stay arises instantly when a bankruptcy petition is electronically filed. That means that if you file bankruptcy on Monday your wages cannot be garnished on Tuesday. The same is true for foreclosure. An emergency bankruptcy filing can stop an upcoming Trustee’s sale and protect your home from liquidation.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Eliminate Debt
Many people file chapter 7 bankruptcy to eliminate debt and stop creditor harassment. In chapter 7 bankruptcy your unsecured debt is eliminated in months, not years. In exchange for this quick elimination of debt, you agree to submit your non-exempt property to the Trustee for sale in bankruptcy. In other words, when you file chapter 7 bankruptcy you will give the Trustee the opportunity to seize and sell your non-exempt property and distribute the proceeds to creditors. However, in most cases, there is no liquidation of assets because most chapter 7 cases are no-asset cases. A no-asset case arises when all property can be exempted under California law. Specifically, your attorney will use California’s 703 (wildcard) or 704 (homestead) exemption law to protect your property. To find out if your property is exempt in chapter 7 bankruptcy you should schedule a free consultation with a local bankruptcy attorney.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Stop Foreclosure
Many residents of Roseville have been affected by the downturn in the real estate market. Coupled with a disruption in income, many homeowners have fallen behind on their mortgage payments and now face foreclosure. To stop the foreclosure process and save their home these homeowners use chapter 13 bankruptcy. In so many words, chapter 13 bankruptcy stops the foreclosure process and forces the lender to accept repayment over a period of years. Through a 3 to 5-year repayment plan, homeowners can cure late payments and keep their homes. However, for chapter 13 bankruptcy to be effective homeowners must file chapter 13 bankruptcy before the Trustee’s sale. To accomplish this some bankruptcy attorneys may advise homeowners to file an emergency chapter 13 bankruptcy petition. In essence, these bankruptcy attorneys will file a skeletal petition which is a short document that contains basic information but is sufficient to invoke the automatic stay to stop foreclosure. However, from the day of filing both the homeowner and the bankruptcy attorney must work quickly to draft the remaining schedules and statements.
