BANKRUPTCY

CALL US TO STOP FORECLOSURE, REPOSSESSIONS, GARNISHMENTS, and HARASSING PHONE CALLS FROM YOUR CREDITORS USING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS!

Georgia Bankruptcy Attorneys, a division of Brian Poe & Associates, Attorneys, PC, is committed to providing our clients with an understanding of their legal rights and options before implementing a debt relief strategy that will work for the individual client. We thoroughly review each client's financial situation and provide the information needed so that he or she can make decisions regarding debt challenges.

As part of each bankruptcy proceeding includes appearing in federal court before a judge, bankruptcy trustee, and creditors, our attorneys represents individual clients and appear with, and on behalf of, clients at these proceedings. When you need to go to court, you will receive notice of the court date and time from the court and/or from our attorney.

The process of determining your qualification for bankruptcy is called a "Means Test" which must be taken. Our attorneys will review your income and debts and, thereafter, determine whether your income level is below the average income in Georgia. If we determine that you qualify for Chapter 7 and/or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, we will communicate the pros/cons of each form of bankruptcy based on your individual situation.

In a nutshell, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing allows a person to discharge most of their debt, with a few exceptions. A means test must be taken in order to determine whether a person qualifies for this type of bankruptcy. Generally, people with few assets are better served using this method. If you want to keep property like a home or a car and are behind on the payments on a mortgage or car loan, a chapter 7 case probably will not be the right choice for you. That is because chapter 7 bankruptcy does not eliminate the right of mortgage holders or car loan creditors to take your property to cover your debt.

For those with a steady income who may be able to repay their debts, a Chapter 13 filing can be used to restructure the debt and repay it within 3 to 5 years. You should consider filing a chapter 13 plan if you: (1) own your home and are in danger of losing it because of money problems; (2) are behind on debt payments, but can catch up if given some time; and (3) have valuable property which is not exempt, but you can afford to pay creditors from your income over time. You will need to have enough income in chapter 13 to pay for your necessities and to keep up with the required payments as they come due.

If you are facing a difficult financial situation due to mounting debts or, worst, or dealing with pending foreclosure, repossession, garnishment, or harassing phone calls, please call us at (404) 287-2363 so that we can set up an immediate confidential phone consultation.
