  • What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

    Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is an option for people who are able to set up a payment plan for at least a portion of their bills. These people are usually wage earners, or they have some kind of monthly income from which they can make the plan payments.
  • What exactly is a 341 Hearing?

    A 341 hearing is a hearing required by the Bankruptcy Code under Section 341. It is often referred to as the Meeting of Creditors. Once a bankruptcy case is filed, your hearing is usually scheduled with 30-45 days. This is the chance for your appointed Trustee to ask you questions about your case.
  • Can I file bankruptcy if I am retired?

    If you are thinking about filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, individuals who have retired file quite often. Many times, people think that they have enough money in savings to survive after retirement, but after a period of time, they find out that they have fallen short on their plans.
  • Will bankruptcy stop the seizure of my personal property?

    If you are facing a seizure of personal property by a bailiff or court officer, you will be able to stop the seizure by filing a bankruptcy case. As soon as a bankruptcy case is filed, the Bankruptcy Court issues an order which prohibits a judgment creditor from following through on a seizure.
  • Do I have to have a job to qualify for Chapter 13?

    The Chapter 13 is often referred to as a Wage Earners Plan, but wages can often be in the form of other income. In order to qualify, all sources of income must be considered.
  • Will everyone know that I filed bankruptcy?

    There are generally three ways to find out about a bankruptcy filing. First, if you are a creditor listed in a case, you will receive ntice of the filing. Next, you can find out about a filing if the Debtor tells you that he has filed. Finally, the Bankruptcy Court has a website that can be used to verify a filing.
  • Can a personal loan be discharged in bankruptcy?

    A personal loan, so long as it is not secured by property, is an unsecured liability that can be discharged in bankruptcy.

Sometimes, we have no control over our situation. I lost my job and my wife was sick. We had a bunch of medical bills, even after our insurance paid for part of them. At one point, we sold everything we could think of on E-Bay. We were so desperate. Once we filed for bankruptcy, we never heard from our creditors again.

About a year ago, my house payments fell behind. I called Wells Fargo to set up a modification. First, they lost all of my paperwork and I had to start over. Then, they fired the person that was helping me. After almost six months, I got a notice that they were foreclosing on my house. I called Weik Law Office and met with Terri on a Thursday night. By the time I got home, ...
