Is Bankruptcy Right for Me?

If you're thinking about filing for bankruptcy but don't know if it is the right step for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do creditors constantly harass you about paying your debts?
  • Is your business failing due to a loss in profit?
  • Are IRS tax collectors always calling you?
  • Are you facing foreclosure on your house or office building?


Filing for bankruptcy immediately ends the harassment and stress caused by accumulating debts. Pursuant to the automatic stay, creditors and tax collectors must stop calling you. In addition, filing for bankruptcy stops foreclosure on your house and business.

What Type of Bankruptcy Should I File?

Attorney Redfield offers bankruptcy assistance to both individuals and businesses. His services include corporate dissolutions and assignments for the benefit of creditors and all chapters of bankruptcy.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: This form of bankruptcy is for individuals or corporations in need of serious debt relief. You can get a fresh start without the sale of assets.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Often called a regular income plan, a Chapter 13 case establishes a repayment plan to prevent the loss of your house and property. It also can be used to repay tax debt.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: A Chapter 11 case is filed by corporations or individuals that typically have too much accumulated debt. It requires a disclosure statement and a plan of reorganization and results in the restructuring of your business and debt. It may also be used by individuals who have exceeded the debt limits for a chapter 13 case.
