Filing for Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy provides debtors with an option to begin a financial fresh start by allowing some types of debt to be discharged. The most common causes of debt issues are medical illnesses, job losses and unmanageable credit card bills. Our bankruptcy attorney helps debtors who have fallen on hard times no matter what prompted the overwhelming debt.
To qualify for bankruptcy you must fulfill the means test. The test is a way for the Bankruptcy Court to determine your eligibility to file for bankruptcy based on your income, assets, debts and liabilities. Not all people qualify for bankruptcy, but the new changes to the Bankruptcy Code make it possible for many individuals to meet the requirements for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
If you are eligible under the means test, filing for bankruptcy is a way to stop creditor harassment because the court will enter an automatic stay. The stay prohibits creditors from calling and bothering you about your debt. If the creditors violate the automatic stay after the discharge of your bankruptcy, attorney Breeden can assist you with permanent stay enforcement. Bankruptcy proceedings can also encourage lenders to work with you to devise debt workout plans or loan modifications.

Mr. Breeden’s emphasis on consumer law is an asset for bankruptcy clients because he is able to more quickly recognize issues that may have led to your debt problems, such as mortgage lending scams, credit issues and debt collector abuse. In these situations, a consumer protection advocate such as Mr. Breeden knows how to fight for your rights.
