Understanding All of Your Debt Relief Options

When people are employed in what they believe are stable jobs, they often accumulate credit card balances and other debts, expecting to be able to repay them out of their salaries and wages. Unfortunately, job loss can make a carefully planned-out situation unmanageable.

Filing for bankruptcy may help you cope with short-term or long-term job loss without suffering creditor harassment and other consequences of unpaid debt.

If you do not expect that you will be able to get another job at the same pay rate anytime soon, Chapter 7 straight bankruptcy may allow you to eliminate old debts while you and your family adjust to a lower income. If you were temporarily laid off or have gotten another job, a Chapter 13 wage earner plan can help you spread out mortgage arrears and other debts accumulated while you were out of work.

Helping People in Chapter 13 Deal With Job Loss

If you are already in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy payment plan and have recently lost your job, you may not be able to keep up with your payment obligations under the plan. If so, you may be eligible to convert your bankruptcy to a Chapter 7. This could, however, have significant consequences, especially if you own a home.

At the Reno Law Firm, we regularly counsel clients on their options when they suffer job loss while repaying debts under Chapter 13. Contact us to learn more.
