Once we have determined your eligibility, we assess your needs. What are your goals? What can you afford to lose? Do you have any disposable assets? People often have concerns about what they stand to lose in a bankruptcy proceeding. What you stand to lose by declaring bankruptcy is largely determined by the results of a means test. While you may lose assets by declaring a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the vast majority of people don’t lose anything. In the case that you do lose something, the loss is generally negligible in comparison to what you gain.
You must know that when you declare bankruptcy, not all debt is dischargeable. A reliable way to determine dischargeability is to discuss your debts with an attorney. Our attorneys will examine when each debt was incurred, whether it was a personal loan, credit card charge, or a medical bill (all of which are dischargeable). We also look at some debts that may not be dischargeable, such as student loans, child support, or spousal support.
We provide you with honest answers so you can make informed decisions. We have offices in the San Diego and Riverside area, Temecula, and El Cajon and East County area to better serve our bankruptcy clients.
