Frequently Asked Questions
If you are struggling with your finances, then bankruptcy might be the way to go. We recommend working with our bankruptcy attorney in Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach to learn more about bankruptcy and other debt solution options and determine what is the right option for you. Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions to help you make better and more informed decisions about your legal case.
Q. How long does filing a Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy typically take?A. The entire Chapter 7 bankruptcy process typically takes about four to six months from credit counseling to the point when the court discharges the rest of your debts. Your bankruptcy can take longer if the trustee asks you to submit additional documents or sell your property.
Q. How does a Chapter 7 corporate bankruptcy work?A. A Chapter 7 business bankruptcy does not enable the continued operation of an LLC or corporation, so you need to shut down your company. After you file the business bankruptcy, the trustee will sell your business assets and send the proceeds to your creditors and collectors.
Q. What is loan modification?A. Loan modification refers to a change that a lender makes to the current loan terms, including a different kind of loan, an extension of the amount of time for repayment, a decrease in the interest rate, or a combination. Borrowers usually work with an attorney or company to negotiate.
Q. What are my student loan repayment options?A. There are several different repayment options and debt solutions out there for student loan debt, depending on the kind of loans you have and your goals for paying off your student loans. We recommend consulting with bankruptcy attorneys at the Van Horn Law Group.
