Take action on your financial problems and see how bankruptcy can be used to tackle your debts by talking with a bankruptcy lawyer by scheduling a free, no risk bankruptcy consultation meeting with one of our local Florida lawyers.
An insolvency lawyer can explain to you your rights and the options available to you to fight your debts. Bankruptcy attorneys can even point out bankruptcy alternatives that you may not have been considered.
Florida bankruptcy laws provide two chapters of debt relief - chapter 7 and chapter 13. Both chapters of the bankruptcy code are available to individuals seeking debt relief but the nature of your debts and your income will depend on whether you file chapter 7 or chapter 13 insolvency. Chapter 7 is a liquidation bankruptcy because when you file a chapter 7 you must turn over any of your property not protected by the bankruptcy exemptions in Florida. Chapter 13 is a reorganization bankruptcy because your debts will be reorganized into a more manageable debt repayment plan.
Bankruptcy laws also protect your assets from seizure. Florida has bankruptcy exemption laws, which protect certain property from seizure. In FL the bankruptcy exemptions include an unlimited value homestead exemption and a $1,000 motor vehicle exemption. If you file chapter 7 bankruptcy these assets will be protected.
