Declaring Maryland Bankruptcy

If you are buried in debts you are unable to repay you may want to talk with a Maryland bankruptcy lawyer to learn about your debt relief options available through filing either chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy. A Maryland bankruptcy lawyer may also be able to point out any bankruptcy alternatives that you may not have considered.

Bankruptcy laws are written to allow people buried in debts a fresh start by wiping out their debts and allowing them protection from their creditors. Many other people in Maryland have exercised their right to debt relief through bankruptcy; in fact 19,242 individuals in Maryland filed chapter 7 bankruptcy in the 12 months ending September, 2012, and an additional 4,640 people filed for chapter 13.

If you have any questions and concerns about bankruptcy one of our bankruptcy lawyers can answer your questions and address any issues or concerns you may have.

A major concern is getting credit again. However, you will be able to rebuild credit and get a credit card after bankruptcy. In fact, you may be able to get credit at the same rates as a person who was never bankrupt in as little as 2 years after bankruptcy.

Another issue people have is deciding whether they should file a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy and a MD bankruptcy attorney can help you decide this as well, including determining if you are eligible to file chapter 7.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation bankruptcy, that is common for debtors with little to no income. As debtors must turn over any of their property when filing chapter 7 that is not covered by the Maryland bankruptcy exemptions, debtors with more assets may decide chapter 13 is more appropriate for them.

MD chapter 13 is a reorganization bankruptcy because debtors filing under this chapter of the Bankruptcy Code will have their debts reorganized into a more manageable debt repayment plan. A chapter 13 repayment plan will last from three to five years, and you will have the protection of the bankruptcy court the entire time your debt repayment plan is in effect.
