Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Individuals seeking relief from outstanding personal debts they cannot pay back may qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also referred to as liquidation bankruptcy. Greensboro’s team of bankruptcy lawyers understands Chapter 7 federal and state exemption rules to help you retain as many assets as possible during liquidation. Because Chapter 7 is typically reserved for incomes within certain thresholds, Ivey McClellan helps conduct your means test which is a determining factor for eligibility. We also evaluate your unsecured and secured debts so you know what to expect should your debt be discharged and receive the fresh start you're looking for. We guide you through each step of your bankruptcy proceedings to ensure all items are filed correctly. If you are struggling with unsecured personal loans or high, unpaid credit card bills, Chapter 7 may be the right option for you to wipe your slate clean.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Insolvent business owners may voluntarily declare bankruptcy under Chapter 11 if they meet certain qualifications. We also assist businesses through involuntary petitions if their creditors or lenders have filed. Business bankruptcies are oftentimes more complicated than personal bankruptcies. We work with business owners to file schedules of assets, liabilities, income, expenditures, and more with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Should you be filing as an individual or married couple, our bankruptcy lawyers assist you with filing additional documents such as certificates of credit counseling and statements of income. Chapter 11 filers have a lot to keep track of, let us do the heavy lifting for you. We ensure no step is missed, down to developing a feasible, fair, and equitable payment plan. To see if your business qualifies for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, contact our team of bankruptcy lawyers today and learn how to start restructuring.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Similar to Chapter 7, individuals may also file for personal bankruptcy under Chapter 13 in Greensboro. Also known as a Wage Earner’s Plan, Chapter 13 develops a repayment plan, instead of liquidating assets, to seek financial relief and end creditor harassment. Ivey McClellan’s bankruptcy lawyers work with you to complete pre-filing credit counseling with a nonprofit counselor, submit a bankruptcy petition, file all required forms, and walk you through the meeting of creditors hearing. We make this process as easy as possible, especially for homeowners who wish to keep their home, continue making mortgage payments, and avoid foreclosure. We work with you to create a feasible payment plan to repay debts owed to creditors over the next three to five years. If you are considering bankruptcy and need financial relief from creditors, discuss Chapter 13 with a team of experienced bankruptcy lawyers today.
