Seattle Bankruptcy Lawyers

Like many persons in the Seattle area and throughout Washington, you may be facing financial difficulties. Unpaid bills and debts can be a major source of stress and you may not see a way out. Filing bankruptcy may be a solution to your problems and may provide a way to reset your life, financially speaking, and get you on the road to financial recovery. Filing bankruptcy will also impose an automatic stay on any attempts to collect debts which means that debt collectors must stop calling you, garnishing your wages, or foreclosing on your home, at least temporarily.

Seattle Bankruptcy Attorneys

We are Seattle bankruptcy attorneys ready to help you. Our first consultation is always free and can typically be conducted over the telephone. We can explain to you the benefits and risk of filing bankruptcy and the steps necessary to discharge your debts or reorganize your debts based upon your individual circumstances. In Washington and throughout the country, bankruptcy filings must go before a US District Court. Rather than being in a Washington state court, you will likely have to appear in either Tacoma or Seattle with a Washington bankruptcy attorney.

There are generally two different options available to an individual or married couple seeking to file bankruptcy – Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. A Chapter 7 filing is the least complicated type of bankruptcy and will involve liquidation of unsecured debts. Unsecured debts include most types of credit card bills, medical bills or other debts that are not secured by your home or car. A Seattle bankruptcy attorney can help you determine which of your debts are secured and unsecured.

Chapter 13 is also an option and is typically a means to keep your home, depending on your specific circumstances. In a Chapter 13 filing, you and your Washington bankruptcy attorney will develop a plan through which your debts are reorganized and repaid over a period of either 3 or 5 years. If you would like to learn more about your options for filing bankruptcy, contact a Seattle bankruptcy attorney who can help you begin your way to financial recovery.
