Learn when is the best time to file your bankruptcy

Debtors who are planning to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 13 should carefully consider their situations before filing. In some circumstances, time is of the essence, such as when debtors are trying to avoid foreclosure on a home or vehicle.

Why is Chapter 13 known as a 'wage-earner's' bankruptcy?

When Tampa debtors filing for bankruptcy have significant assets or income, they are ineligible for filing under Chapter 7, which is a total liquidation. While that might sound like a good deal, it also means that any non-exempt assets can be sold off to pay your creditors.

How do I know if it's time to file for bankruptcy?

If you are struggling to pay your bills, your head may be swimming with potential solutions to your insolvency problem. It's a good idea to try to resolve your debt delinquencies. However, "solutions" can cost you money and offer very few real routes out of debt.
