There are different types of bankruptcy available depending on your situation, but bankruptcy can either permit you to start over or develop a payment plan with creditors that can ultimately put you on a path to starting over financially. While bankruptcy can offer an option for individuals who are facing financial difficulty due to debt, the United States Courts website encourages individuals or businesses who are considering bankruptcy to seek advice from a bankruptcy lawyer because bankruptcy can have serious long-term financial and legal repercussions.

More people than ever may be considering filing for bankruptcy. If you are considering bankruptcy, reach out to Campbell, House, & Company, bankruptcy lawyers in the state of Louisiana.

There are many different types of bankruptcy, but the two main types are Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to discharge, or erase, most of your debts. For people who don’t have many assets and have a low-income, Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be the best option to get a new start. Chapter 7 bankruptcy also comes with the benefit of excluding some assets from being sold to pay off creditors. If you own a home, or other property, Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be your better option, especially if you have enough income to pay some of your debts, if other of your debts were to be discharged. An example of someone who may qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a person with large medical debt, who owns a home with a mortgage. If the medical debt is discharged, the person may be able to avoid litigation and restructure their remaining debt so they can continue to pay their mortgage and keep their home. As you can see, bankruptcy can be complex. This is why having a bankruptcy lawyer on your side, like Campbell, House, & Company in the state of Louisiana can be so important.

While student loan debt is not permitted to be discharged in bankruptcy, there are certain exceptions. If you can show the court that paying the student loan will cause “undue hardship” you may be able to get the loan discharged. However, it is important to keep in mind that many courts are reluctant to discharge student loans in this manner. However, if you are low income, never finished school, or you took out debt to go to a for-profit school, you may have a better chance getting your loan discharged in bankruptcy.
