Bankruptcy law is a federal law designed to assist individual consumers and businesses facing financial difficulties. With respect to consumer debtors, the goal of bankruptcy is to help individuals get beyond their financial turmoil and obtain a fresh start. We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
Despite the recent changes to the bankruptcy laws, bankruptcy is still an available option for consumers facing financial difficulties. Under the NEW Bankruptcy law, you can do almost everything that you could do under the old law. However, the NEW Bankruptcy Law is much more complicated and therefore, it is now more important than ever to have an experienced bankruptcy lawyer on your side. At SR Law, our lawyers have successfully completed numerous personal and business bankruptcies.
We offer the following services to clients in financial distress:
- Advice and counsel concerning the client’s financial condition;
- Review of the options available to the client, including a detailed explanation of the different forms of bankruptcy relief;
- An evaluation of each option, in light of the client’s current financial and personal situation, and the client’s goals for the future;
- Preparing and filing individual and joint Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Petitions in New York and New Jersey;
- Personally attending the court hearing with the clients.
Did you know:
- You can stop harassing phone calls at home and work – we can make sure of that!
- You can keep most or all of your property and possessions under state or federal exemption statutes, while erasing debt from credit cards, medical bills, unsecured loans, and most other obligations.
- While an individual’s bankruptcy filing will be reflected on your credit report for up to ten years, this does not mean that you will not obtain credit again. Many lenders in the credit card and mortgage industry do not automatically disqualify an applicant because they previously filed bankruptcy. In addition, it is important to note, that if someone is behind on their bills their credit rating may already be poor.
- If you are not married, it is not required that your spouse file for Bankruptcy with you. Each case will be evaluated by licensed attorneys to see whether individual or joint Bankruptcy is most beneficial in your case.
