Helping You Determine If Chapter 7 Fits

Chapter 7 bankruptcy, also known as “liquidation bankruptcy,” allows you to quickly shed most unsecured debt if you do not have the income or assets to pay it off.

At Riddell Law Group, our experienced, knowledgeable bankruptcy attorneys can help you file for Chapter 7 and be with you every step of the way until you obtain your bankruptcy discharge. With locations in Sarasota and Venice, Florida, to better serve you, we are ready to help you get your life back.

Why Chapter 7 May Be Right For You

If you come to our office for a consultation, an experienced lawyer will take the time to explain how the bankruptcy process works and address all of your questions and concerns. Our office offers a free initial bankruptcy consultation; please call us to schedule your appointment.

What you should know about Chapter 7, however, is that it may:

  • Discharge your unsecured debt: If you are struggling with medical debt, credit card bills and personal loans that are not backed by collateral, a Chapter 7 discharge can eliminate these debts.
  • Stop creditor harassment and collections: We know how scary it is to have creditors calling you at all hours. A bankruptcy filing will stop creditor calls and harassment through what is referred to as the automatic stay. Once the bankruptcy petition is filed, the automatic stay is imposed to prevent most creditors’ collection activities.
  • Be completed in a few months: Many Chapter 7 filings can be discharged in as quickly as six months. A Chapter 13 filing can take several years.

Additionally, if you own a small business that is drowning in debt, we can help your business through a Chapter 7 filing. We can help you liquidate your assets and wind down your business.
