Bankruptcy Law Firm in Pueblo, CO
Providing You with a Dedicated Legal Advocate
Most people face financial problems at some point in their lives. It is an unfortunate fact of life. However, in some cases, people are faced with financial issues that they simply cannot overcome on their own no matter how hard they try. Maybe they were in an accident and suffered an injury that prevented them from working and left them with a pile of hospital bills. Or perhaps they were the victim of predatory lenders who saddled them with bad loans that they can’t afford to pay off because the interest on the loans is outrageously high.
Those are just a couple of the ways that a person can become trapped in a hopeless financial situation. Fortunately, bankruptcy provides people with a legitimate and realistic opportunity to solve their debt problems and regain control of their finances.

Bankruptcy is not one size fits all. There are different types of bankruptcy to handle the unique financial situations of a wide range of individuals and the wide variety of financial problems that people can face. Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy are the to most common forms of bankruptcy. Both Chapter 7 and 13 have their benefits and their limitations.
People can eliminate multiple types of unsecured debt using Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is especially helpful to debtors who are behind on paying their bills and don’t have an affordable way to catch up on their payments or even afford their monthly payments in general. Chapter 7 allows a person to eliminate that debt and make a fresh start. However, there are negative consequences for filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Once a person files Chapter 7, it will negatively impact their creditworthiness for years. Also, if a person files Chapter 7 bankruptcy, they may have to give up some of their possessions to be sold to repay their creditors.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is less about eliminating debt and more about reorganizing a person’s debt, so that the person can afford to repay it. Chapter 13 bankruptcy creates a payment plan that allows a debtor to repay their creditors under the supervision of The United States Bankruptcy Court. Chapter 13 bankruptcy has several benefits. For one thing, it only lasts a set time (usually 36 to 60 months). In addition, Chapter 13 does not require creditors to be fully repaid, which, in some cases, can save debtors a lot of money. Plus, filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy often allows people to keep property that they would have to give up if they filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 also provides people with the opportunity to affordably pay overdue taxes and catch up on their mortgage and car payments instead of facing repossession or foreclosure.
