Questions to ask of your Chapter 7 Attorney?

Some of the first questions for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyer is what assets they can be protected, and which types of debt can be forgiven. In general, credit card, medical bills, certain loans, and foreclosures of homes can be forgiven. Some debts are not forgiven, including student loans, and alimony and child support obligations. Court penalties and fines are also excluded.

There are also certain exemptions and methods to protect a family home or vehicle. Although you may be required to agree to any existing financing terms, such as a car loan. Or in the case of a home, you will need to be current on your mortgage or enter into a modified agreement with your mortgage provider.

A successful bankruptcy proceeding will remain on your credit report for 10 years, but in 18 months, you can begin to establish a strong credit rating. In fact, many people have had greater success fixing their credit through bankruptcy and by starting over fresh as opposed to working on their credit outside of bankruptcy.
