There are several types of consumer bankruptcy that may allow a person or business to discharge debts and start over. The type of bankruptcy that you should use depends on the kind of debts you owe, the amounts owed and your future financial plans.
Experienced Modesto Consumer Bankruptcy Lawyer
If you are considering bankruptcy, you need to be guided through the process by an experienced bankruptcy lawyer who has the wisdom to choose the right type of bankruptcy for you, and not simply the technical knowledge to help you file. The Law Office of Robert L. Buchlr can perform any type of bankruptcy for you. The two types of consumer bankruptcy that we particularly focus on are Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
Certain debts such as support obligations, tax debts, student loans and other specified debts are not discharged in any type of bankruptcy.
Under specific and rare circumstances, some Income tax debts can be discharged.
Changes in Bankruptcy Law
The government passed the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 that have made the most significant changes to bankruptcy since 1978. In essence, the changes make bankruptcy laws more creditor-friendly. The new laws are in effect now.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is liquidation bankruptcy. Debt is completely eliminated and people are given a clean slate. It involves liquidating all of your non-exempt property and using the proceeds to pay creditors as much of the debts they are owed as possible. Additionally, we are often able to ensure most clients can keep their homes, cars and other property. Consumers must become eligible to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy by qualifying under the means test. The test considers the median income of the state relative to the consumer's income. For those who do not qualify, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy becomes the next option.
Modesto, California Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer
Living in debt is not a fun way to live. When the debt becomes overwhelming-and the mortgage payments, car payments and other bills are late-it may be time to look at your options. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is debt reorganization. It is often called "wage earner" bankruptcy. This type of bankruptcy is particularly useful for preventing mortgage foreclosures and protecting your assets. Consumers are put on a payment plan to pay off some or all of their debt within a three to five year time frame. Chapter 13 bankruptcy essentially gives you a reprieve from all debt collection efforts during the time period outlined in the plan, and can often eliminate or reduce interest rates.
The Law Office of Robert L. Buchler provides quality legal help to people who are interested in obtaining debt relief through Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
Stop Foreclosure with Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Are you delinquent on your mortgage? Are you worried about the possibility of home foreclosure? Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can be a viable option for preventing foreclosure and protecting your assets. In Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, debt collectors are prevented from making efforts to collect the debts and the consumer is given a three to five year timeframe to pay off debts. For homeowners facing possible foreclosure, Chapter 13 can be a welcome option. Attorney Robert Buchler has over 30 years of experience handling bankruptcy proceedings and he is here to help you.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can also discharge credit card debt, medical bills, other common household bills, and some second mortgages as well as reduce some interest rates. Consumers are usually able to retain all property and assets.

Eliminate Unnecessary Stress
Harassing calls and letters from collection agents can create unnecessary stress at a time when you are already dealing with the anxiety that comes from financial troubles. Stopping creditor harassment is not easy to do on your own. At the California Law Office of Robert L. Buchler, our experienced lawyer can analyze your situation to let you know what your options are.
We Will Fight For You
If your home, property or personal possessions have been threatened, we can help in the fight against your bank, collections agency or other creditor and prevent repossession. A petition for bankruptcy can be filed resulting in an automatic stay. The automatic stay will prevent creditors from taking certain actions against you, such as collecting the debt, initiating foreclosure or garnishing your wages.
A Warning About Debt Relief Companies
Companies who claim to "reorganize" your debt are not focused on providing you with the best solutions for your situation. When you get down to the fine print, their number one goal is usually to preserve capital. This can lead to major deception and poor customer service. It is important to realize that these debt reorganization companies are not likely to effectively reduce your principal balance.
At the Law Office of Robert L. Buchler, we advise clients to explore all of their options regarding their debt. Though bankruptcy might be a scary word for some, for many people, it is the best option to alleviate financial pressures.
