Full Unsecured Debt Relief at the Law Offices of Neil Crane


Properly prepared Chapter 7 petitions allow for relief from nearly all forms of unsecured debt. This means that mortgages and car loan payments continue but other forms of less important unsecured debts are eliminated or "discharged" in full.

The permanent debt relief from Chapter 7 includes bills like:

  • Credit Card Debts
  • Deficiency Judgments from foreclosures
  • Payday Loans
  • State Income Taxes over three years old
  • Federal Income Taxes over three years old
  • Personal Property Taxes over one year old
  • Personal Loans
  • Garnishments

Chapter 7 also relieves other forms of unsecured debts and allows for the reversal of recent actions by creditors like judgments, liens and levies.

The Automatic Stay and Assets Protected By Bankruptcy Exemptions

Two of the essential elements to financial recovery are protected by the ability to immediately halt all creditor collection activities and the ability to permanently protect personal assets necessary to pursue a future fresh start. The halting of all creditor actions is accomplished through federal laws which provide an automatic stay on all actions to collect immediately upon the filing of a bankruptcy petition. This is a powerful federal law that sets the stage for Chapter 7 recovery.

Bankruptcy Exemptions allow individuals and families to preserve the assets and belongings necessary to start and pursue their course for a new financial fresh start. These laws protect a wide variety of important personal assets, including:

  • Residential Home Equity
  • Bank Accounts
  • Pensions
  • Automobiles
  • 401K and other tax exempt accounts
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Tools of the Trade
  • Household Belongings
  • 529 Accounts and others...

Exempting and protecting personal assets assures that anyone who seeks relief under Chapter 7 is allowed all the essential belongings and tools necessary to maximize their recovery.
