Chapter 7 in Federal Way

Find out how Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you eliminate debt

Unmanageable debt can turn your life upside down. If you've fallen behind on bills and simply can't get back on track, Chapter 7 bankruptcy offers a way to start over financially with a clean slate. Chapter 7 bankruptcy eliminates all or most of your unsecured debt, which includes credit cards and medical bills. It also provides you with an opportunity to repair your credit, and stop harassing phone calls from debt collectors once and for all.

If you're struggling with debt, you're not alone. People all over the country are dealing with situations beyond their control that caused them to fall behind on bills. Some get sick and miss work, others are laid off, but the government created bankruptcy laws to help people get a fresh start when they need it most.

This underscores the fact that filing for bankruptcy relief does not equate to failure. In truth, filing for Chapter bankruptcy is an intelligent financial choice in a number of situations. Is it right for you? Talk to one of our Federal Way debt relief lawyers and find out.

Credit card companies and other creditors often sell unpaid debt to collection agencies for pennies on the dollar. This can happen to your debt after just three months of non-payment, regardless of your situation. Debt collection agencies essentially do the dirty work for the creditors, and they are often ruthless in their attempts to make a profit off of people who simply are unable to afford the bill.

These tactics often work, whether they try to make people feel like they are failures in life, threaten them with lawsuits, or say that filing for bankruptcy will cause them to lose everything. This kind of relentless badgering can turn your life into a living nightmare.
