Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Houston Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorneys Outline Options for Your Future

Liquidation lawyers in Texas helping families take back control of their lives

Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also referred to as straight bankruptcy, allows the courts to liquidate your assets. Almost all of your debts are eliminated, while some of your personal property is sold to pay back your creditors. At the Law Office of David A. Fernandez, P.C., our Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers in Houston assist you throughout the process. We handle the documentation needed for the court while offering you a friendly shoulder to lean on when you feel emotionally drained.

Benefits of Chapter 7 bankruptcy

Bankruptcy proceedings are regulated by federal law. Your unsecured debt is virtually eliminated. Unsecured debt, or debt that is not backed by collateral, commonly includes:

One of the more compelling reasons for filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings is the automatic stay. The stay puts an immediate end to creditor calls and collection practices, such as wage garnishment or mortgage liens. The most important part of the stay, however, is that it affords you some breathing room while we consider which steps you should take next.

Bankruptcy is an essential tool in credit negotiations. Collections agents who resisted all forms of negotiations become more willing to strike a deal when they realize they could potentially end up with nothing. Our attorneys handle the complexities of debt negotiation by dealing directly with your creditors, freeing you to focus on the rest of your life.
