Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Carthage, North Carolina, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyers
Many people who have severe debt problems fear that they can no longer file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy under the new bankruptcy laws. While bankruptcy laws have changed, our lawyers continue to provide bankruptcy solutions for people in central North Carolina, including Moore, Randolph, and Montgomery counties. We can also assist people in the surrounding counties of Chatham, Hoke, Lee, and Cumberland.
Under the new bankruptcy laws, you must first satisfy a means test before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. In this means test, your household income is compared to the North Carolina median income for your household size. If your income is above the North Carolina median income, you will need to file for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy instead of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.
You must also complete a credit-counseling course before and after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy allows you to:
- Eliminate credit card bills, hospital bills, payday loans, and other forms of unsecured debt (debts that aren’t backed up by tangible assets, such as your home or car)
- Prevent home foreclosures, giving you time to catch up on your mortgage
- Prevent car repossessions, giving you time to catch up on your payments
- Put an immediate end to creditor harassment
