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.

If it is, we will guide you through the Wisconsin bankruptcy process, help you avoid common mistakes and give you a fresh start for your financial future.

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:
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.
For many people, filing bankruptcy is a financial rescue; a real lifesaver at just the right moment. It’s true that the most recent bankruptcy laws have made it more challenging for many consumers to file Chapter 7, but bankruptcy remains a powerful tool for people who are unable to pay credit card debt, medical bills, or balloon mortgage payments.

A few years ago I found myself drowning in debt, after doing some research I decided I would get some help in dealing with that debt, so I reached out to Debt Advisors Law Offices. I was scared, nervous, and embarrassed that I had gotten to this point but after my first meeting with Debt Advisors I knew I was making the right decision.
