Explanation from a Seattle Bankruptcy Attorney
When you come in for an initial free bankruptcy consultation a bankruptcy attorney will determine whether you qualify to have all your debts discharged through a chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you qualify to file under Chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code, we focus on ensuring that you receive a full bankruptcy discharge of your eligible dischargeable debts and that you keep all of your exempt assets. In Washington state, debtors may choose to use state or federal exemptions and your bankruptcy lawyer will discuss which option is best for you. In most circumstances, clients are able to keep all of their assets after filing bankruptcy. If we determine that your only option is to file under Chapter 13 of the bankruptcy code, a bankruptcy attorney will prepare and get approval of a repayment plan from the bankruptcy court. For our Chapter 13 clients, we place our focus on creating a plan that is both realistic and manageable for the long term.
If you have received threatening phone calls and letters from debt collectors or have been served with a summons and complaint related to debt collections, your most significant asset may be your current income and/or future earnings. Filing for bankruptcy will prevent creditors from garnishing your future wages as soon as your petition is filed, even if the creditor has taken legal action against you. Additionally, filing for bankruptcy will delay or completely stop any foreclosure actions being taken on your home while possibly making you eligible to strip a second mortgage and discharge that debt entirely.
