Portland Bankruptcy Attorney

Understanding the Pros & Cons of Filing

Most people think of bankruptcy as a last resort, reserved only for when all other options fail. However, there are times when bankruptcy might be the most reasonable choice in getting your finances back on track. Bankruptcy is sometimes the only way to stop a wage or bank garnishment, repossession, or foreclosure. While declaring bankruptcy is often thought of as the last case scenario, it can actually be beneficial in the long run.

Depending on your situation and the type of bankruptcy you declare, filing bankruptcy can help you by:

  • Completely or substantially eliminating credit card and other debts
  • Allowing you to schedule out payments for non-dischargeable tax debt
  • Letting you rework a vehicle that is worth less than what you owe
  • Providing alternatives to losing your home due to foreclosure
  • Stopping financially-detrimental wage or bank garnishment

When you’re facing huge, overwhelming debt, bankruptcy might be the best option. As a Portland bankruptcy attorney, I can help you understand the pros and cons of filing bankruptcy as they apply to your unique situation. My firm can also assist you with weighing the different types of bankruptcy, including Chapter 13, and decide which one may be right for you.
