Deciding to file bankruptcy is a very difficult decision. When making this sort of decision you should always consult with a bankruptcy attorney. A bankruptcy attorney is someone who can help you decide if this is the correct option for you. A bankruptcy attorney is someone who could let you know the pros and cons of filing a bankruptcy.

To help you get an idea, filing a bankruptcy and receiving relief from debt takes only about 3 to 6 months. Although it will stay on your credit for a while, so will missed debt payments, defaults, repossessions and lawsuits. When you file bankruptcy you will lose all your credit cards, but at this point credit cards may be one of the main reasons you have found yourself considering filing bankruptcy; Many people are concerned their personal goods will be taken from them because they have decided to file for bankruptcy. That however, is false. Most state exemptions allow a person enough so that most, if not all, thingswill be exempt from the bankruptcy.  The sooner you declare bankruptcy the sooner you will be able to build up credit again and start a fresh start.

If you are considering filing for bankruptcy or have any questions regarding this matter please feel free to call the Law Office of Ray Garcia, P.A. to speak with a bankruptcy attorney at 305-227-4030.

A homeowner also needs to be aware that a bankruptcy is not going to deal with the lien against the house.

If one of our clients is thinking bankruptcy will solve all their problems, we advise them to see an attorney since we can't give legal advice. Then if they decide bankruptcy is their best option at this time, come back to us after the discharge and we can do the short sale then. Can't do it during the process unless the bk Trustee releases the house from the bk estate. And some banks will reserve the right to pursue a deficiency after closing, because the seller has no way left to discharge any remaining debt.
