Wisconsin Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys
File Chapter 7
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is often a quicker and cheaper form of bankruptcy than Chapter 13. It’s commonly referred to as a “liquidation” or “complete” bankruptcy. It allows a person to discharge credit card and other debts in a process that takes approximately four to five months. Once that period is over, you will come out of Ch. 7 debt free and, in most cases, able to keep your property.

Wisconsin Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer
In 2005, new bankruptcy laws were enacted that made it more difficult for some people to file. For example, under these laws, people cannot file for Chapter 7 if they have already received a bankruptcy discharge within the last six to eight years or if the current monthly income is more than the median income in the state of Wisconsin.
Don’t be discouraged because even under these rules, the large majority of people still DO qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy which can discharge:
- Credit card debt, including store cards
- Medical bills
- Payday loans
- Personal loans
- Overdue Rent
- Utility Bills
- Judgements & Lawsuits
- Deficient balances on cars & real estate
Certain types of debts such as student loans, recent taxes and back child support cannot be discharged in Chapter 7 and, for some people, Ch. 13 bankruptcy may make more sense as a means to debt relief. You’re probably wondering how much debt you need to qualify for chapter 7 and how long the process will take. As a matter of fact, your going to have lots of questions about the bankruptcy process in general. We will review your situation carefully and help arrive at sensible and effective options to help eliminate your debt.
