Glassboro, New Jersey Bankruptcy Lawyers
The Hoffman DiMuzio bankruptcy attorneys that serve Glassboro, NJ provide advice to those who need to reorganize or liquidate in order to resolve financial issues.
Sometimes, an individual or business cannot avoid financial problems. Personal Illness or that of a loved one, the loss of a job or business income due to the economy, or a major life event such as divorce or death of a family member, all may contribute to being financially underwater. While it may seem like there’s no end to financial problems, the firm can help individuals and businesses get out of a bad situation, including keeping a home.
Chapter 13 Attorneys in Glassboro, New Jersey
If a person wants to keep most or all of his or her property and personal items, and that person qualifies, he or she could opt to file Chapter 13 reorganization bankruptcy.
When an individual files Chapter 13, he or she must have the available income to pay a percentage of debts. However, an individual has a chance to keep his or her home, vehicle and most, if not all, personal belongings. The person filing Chapter 13 will need to have the ability to pay the mortgage every month. It is sometimes possible to include the arrearage as part of the bankruptcy settlement payments, too.
Chapter 7 Attorneys in Glassboro, New Jersey
When an individual doesn’t qualify for Chapter 13 reorganization, he or she could file Chapter 7 liquidation. A person that files Chapter 7 is still able to keep some possessions. However, some of them are used to pay a portion of what is owed to creditors. Filing Chapter 7 is ideal when the filer has taken a severe cut in pay or a loved one is no longer able to contribute to the financial well-being of the family.<!– Commented Out, Firm Handles Only Chapter 7 & 13
Additional Bankruptcy Options in Glassboro, New Jersey
There are some circumstances which allow a person or business to file under chapters of the bankruptcy code other than Chapters 13 and 7. One of these options is Chapter 11. This option is used mostly by large businesses to re-organize debt while continuing operations. The other is Chapter 12, which allows farmers and commercial fishermen to re-organize while maintaining operations.
