If you are worried about your financial situation, the New Year is a perfect time to consider your bankruptcy options.  Debtors are able to pay their bankruptcy attorney fees and filing fee with their tax refunds before their cases are filed.  Your 2014 tax refund could wipe out your debt, so you can have a happier 2015 with your family.

Most debtors file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, our attorneys can meet with you during a free in office consultation to discuss your bankruptcy options.  A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows debtors to wipe out their credit card debt, medical debt, repossessions, garnishments, foreclosures, and collection judgments.  If a debtor wishes to walk away from a car loan or mortgage, they can do so with a Chapter 7.  A Chapter 13 allows debtors to catch-up on their past due mortgage or car loan payments over the course of either 3 – 5 years.  Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys will let you know which chapter is available to you and best for your situation.

If you are unable to pay off all your unsecured debt with your 2014 tax refunds, you may want to consider your bankruptcy options and learn how you can live debt free in 2015.  Use your tax refund to eliminate your debt and stress.  Call our Kansas bankruptcy attorneys to arrange for a free in office bankruptcy consultation to receive answers to your bankruptcy questions.
