What is a debt discharge?

A debt discharge in Chapter 7 bankruptcy is when you are released from the debt - you are completely free of it. There are certain non-dischargeable debts, but unsecured consumer debt such as credit card bills, medical bills, personal loans, back utility payments and phone payments are all eligible for discharge. At the end of the bankruptcy process, these debts will no longer be yours; you are free from that problem. This can be an important matter, as many people have high levels of credit card debt that they incurred while struggling to stay afloat in a tough economy. Some may have huge debts to pay due to a divorce, or a medical emergency led to expensive medical bills.

In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the process is different. The debt you have is paid off over a 3 - 5 year period, in one payment. At the end of the term of the bankruptcy, any remaining amount will be discharged. There are also big advantages in this form of bankruptcy. For example, if you have overdue mortgage payments, you have the ability to keep your property and pay these payments off over the period of the bankruptcy. Another advantage is that either the interest on the overdue obligations will be 0 or very much less than you are currently dealing with.

No matter what your situation is, we have solutions that could work for you. You are given the opportunity to be free from a large portion of your debts through bankruptcy under the federal bankruptcy laws. We are here to guide you through the process and to make sure you get the most out of filing for bankruptcy.
