Brooklyn Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer
Keep your home and most of your assets while getting a fresh start
Chapter 7 is the most common form of bankruptcy filed in the United States. It gives debtors a chance at a fresh start by stopping collection calls, staying foreclosures on your home and allowing you to pay off debts according to an order of priority set by a bankruptcy trustee. State and federal exemptions give you the opportunity to keep most of your real and personal property even as you discharge debts. In most cases, attorney Gregory Messer is able to protect all of the debtor’s assets.
Under the Chapter 13 petition as long as they are gainfully employed and possess disposable income.
Certain corporations and partnerships are also eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, although Chapter 11 bankruptcy may be an attractive alternative.
