Together We'll Find The Right Option For You
The United States Bankruptcy Code is designed to provide honest debtors a fresh start and financial freedom. Bankruptcy is a legal process that individuals and businesses can use to restructure, reduce, or eliminate debt. The Bankruptcy Court system oversees and manages cases, and the filing process requires substantial paperwork and at least one in-court hearing. While most cases occur without any issues, creditors or trustees may file suit (called an adversary proceeding) at any point during the filing process. As such, having a skilled and experienced attorney by your side is critical. The Law Office of Matthew M. Cree, LLC can guide you through this process, help you navigate any unexpected challenges, and, if necessary, represent you in court.
One of the first decisions you will make when filing bankruptcy is which type to file. Bankruptcy is organized into several chapters, and not every chapter is suitable for every debtor. We assist with Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and we can help you determine which is right for your situation. No matter which chapter you choose, you will benefit from one of the biggest benefits of bankruptcy: the automatic stay. This court order takes effect immediately; suspending all collection activities until the procedure is complete. This means temporary freedom from calls, repossession, foreclosure, wage garnishment, and more.
