Whether you are a homeowner who is underwater on a second mortgage or you’re overloaded with credit card debt, bankruptcy may afford you a way to end those endless calls from creditors, take control of your finances again, and make a fresh start.
Which type of bankruptcy is right for you?
All bankruptcies automatically put foreclosure proceedings on hold (and stop all collection efforts against you. Bankruptcy can also protect specific possessions, including, in some cases, the equity in your home, jewelry, personal effects, or other assets. Often, significant amounts of debt can be discharged or forgiven. But not all bankruptcies are the same.
