By Leavengood, Dauval & Boyle, P.A.  May. 8, 2013 4:50p

If you, like millions of Americans, have found yourself struggling financially during the last few years, you are not alone! When the ever-increasing weight of debt begins to seem like too much of a burden to bear, there is a way out! Do not allow yourself and your family to suffer in silence any longer. With the help of a trained professional, you can turn the tables on your creditors and erase your debt, allowing you to breathe free and easy for the first time in far too long.

Many of our clients are initially resistant to the idea of pursuing a bankruptcy filing, feeling that the process is too extreme or difficult. Many others fear to lose possession of their property and assets, their cars or even their homes. If you are experiencing these anxieties, we understand. But what if we told you there was a way to rid yourself of your troublesome creditors and ease your financial problems without having to lose so much as a dish or piece of furniture?

The key lies in filing for Chapter 13 Debt Restructuring. With the help of an attorney from our firm, we can help guide you through this process and ensure that you are able to end your financial woes as soon as possible.

To file for Chapter 13, you will first be required to submit to a full review by a court-appointed trustee. Once an overview has been made of your debts, the trustee will craft a monthly payment plan, designed to be manageable under your current income, usually lasting from three to five years. By reorganizing your various debts into a single payment, you ease your burden considerably and prevent your creditors from harassing you further. Once the plan is completed, your debt is considered repaid, and you are free to live your life anew!

The benefits of this kind of bankruptcy are many, including the ability to protect your assets from liquidation or seizure, not to mention the added emotional stability that comes from knowing your future is secure. If you have a regular source of income, Chapter 13 can be the most attractive option for your family.
