The federal bankruptcy law can be complex and is ever changing. The decision to file bankruptcy should not be taken lightly and it is imperative that you understand every option available that might alleviate your financial problems. Those options include the various types of bankruptcy (Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11), and non-bankruptcy options or strategies that may involve debt settlement, debt consolidation, budget adjustments, or perhaps just do nothing as a result of being judgment or garnishment proof. Making the wrong decision could result in filing an unnecessary bankruptcy, risking the loss of property, or filing a bankruptcy Chapter that may not provide the maximum benefit. Consequently, you need an experienced bankruptcy attorney who knows the bankruptcy laws and is willing to provide honest and straightforward advice, regardless of whether or not the advice might be in the attorney's best financial interest.
